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