Impeachment by Mark Spivak - Book Blitz + Giveaway


Impeachment

by Mark Spivak


~~~~~~~~~~~~~


GENRE: Thriller


~~~~~~~~~~~~~


BLURB:

A pair of billionaire brothers with unlimited resources, a secret agenda, and no accountability. 

Mysterious “peace-keeping forces” that materialize out of nowhere.

Detention camps on the U.S.-Mexican border.

Bungled assassination attempts with untraceable origins.

A reactive Congress, lobbyists bought and paid for, and upheavals at the highest levels of government.

How was it all engineered, and could it happen tomorrow?

Is it fiction or uncomfortable reality?

~~~~~~~~~~~~~


EXCERPT

“Thanks for coming.” 

“No problem,” said Mendoza. “I always drive twenty miles out to the boondocks to get myself a cappuccino. The journey clears my head.” 

“I figured that neither of us needed to be seen in public with each other. My instinct was it wouldn’t play well with our respective constituencies.”

“I suspect you’re right. So tell me, Mr. Lapham, what have I done to deserve this audience? Have the Haft brothers decided to donate a billion dollars to Criollos Unidos?” 

“We have some areas of mutual interest. I think we might be able to come to an accommodation.” 

“I’m listening.” 

“You’ve been quite outspoken recently in your criticism of Khaleem Atalas.” 

“I think he’s a great man. If he wasn’t holding a hundred thousand of my people in concentration camps along the Mexican border, I’d nominate him for the Nobel Peace Prize.” 

“As you can imagine, my employers share your disgust for the President. Although their specific reasons are different, of course.” 

“To be honest, he double-crossed us. And I do not like to be double-crossed.” 

“I think you’re a man of principle, even though I may not agree with many of your convictions. And as I said, we’re not fans of Atalas either. The only difference is that we haven’t been surprised at the way things turned out.” 

“Before we join hands and start singing kumbaya, why don’t you tell me why you dragged me down here?” 

“I could have sworn you came of your own free will.” 

“I have to admit, I was curious.” 

“As I said, we find ourselves on the same side of this problem, but for different reasons. I was thinking there might be some way we could work together.”

AUTHOR Bio and Links:


Mark Spivak is an award-winning writer specializing in wine, spirits, food, restaurants and culinary travel. He’s the author of Iconic Spirits: An Intoxicating History and Moonshine Nation: The Art of Creating Cornbread in a Bottle. His first novel, Friend of the Devil, tells the story of America’s most celebrated chef who has cut a deal with Satan for fame and fortune.

Mark is also a political junkie who loves turning his fascination with the seamy underbelly of the American political system into taut, page-turning thrillers. The American Crusade, the story of a devastating terrorist attack and the government’s response, was published in April 2019; Impeachment, a tale of two billionaire brothers who manipulate that system for their own ends, is a sequel that also stands alone as an unusual and compelling story.
