P.E.I.-based au­thor re­leases third book

The Guardian (Charlottetown) - - ENTERTAINMENT -

P.E.I.-based au­thor Chris McGarry re­cently re­leased his third novel ti­tled “When the Guns Were Turned on Us”.

In the near fu­ture, amidst a global eco­nomic melt­down and third world con­flict, Canada, the United States and Mex­ico have been merged into an au­thor­i­tar­ian North Amer­i­can Re­pub­lic.

McGarry says the plot un­folds like this:” Jake Scrib­ner, a dual Cana­dian/Amer­i­can ci­ti­zen and U.S. Air Force vet­eran, re­tires to Kam­loops, Bri­tish Columbia. One day, Kam­loops is oc­cu­pied by mil­i­ta­rized North Amer­i­can Po­lice units and United Na­tions forces and placed un­der mar­tial law.”

Al­though his fi­ancé Ni­cole, an out­spo­ken ac­tivist, is de­tained, Scrib­ner flees to the nearby rugged moun­tain­ous wilder­ness.

He runs into a small band of free­dom fight­ers and they launch a guer­rilla war against the oc­cu­py­ing forces.

Cur­rent events tak­ing place world­wide in­spired McGarry to write “When the Guns Were Turned on Us”.

“This book is un­like any­thing I've ever writ­ten be­fore,” he says.

“It's a clas­sic story of good vs. evil with a some­what unique Cana­dian twist.”

McGarry also wrote Un­fore­seen Fury and Sum­mer of Fear. When the Guns Were Turned on Us, part one of the North Amer­i­can Em­pire Se­ries, is avail­able at ama­zon.com.
