A Note From the Publisher
Jon Jacobs served in the U.S. Air Force in Florida and lived the last forty years in Texas. He became a writer by the traditional path: a degree in chemistry and a career as a software developer.
From childhood Jon was fascinated with science. But for his voracious reading and grounding in the Bible, he might well have become a fairly one-dimensional personality. Thankfully, his readers will agree, Jon was guided to a life of balanced service. In addition to his work and his writing, Jon has served as a pastor and continues to serve as an in-depth Bible teacher.
Jon’s transition from chemistry to programming may have been providential. The gas-phase infrared spectrometer needed for a research project broke before he could start. He was forced to learn Fortran programming to model chemical processes instead. Those nights with punch cards paid off in a lengthy programming career that allowed him to bring the logic of software engineering to his disciplined writing style.
While Jon’s experiences are not really the traditional path, if such exists, to becoming a writer, they produced an eclectic mixture of writing interests including Bible exposition, science fiction, and Christian fiction. This blend provides for enjoyable reads in Jon’s books.
I like political thrillers but usually read those in a more contemporary setting. However, I found the glimpse of future technological advances fascinating while the possibility of freedom lost, and an America transformed into a social order that would have shaken the forefathers to their core, frightening as well as eye opening. Twist and turns of the plot kept me reading hour after hour, sometimes well past my bedtime. I had to find out what happened next. This book is set in the future, based on history, and carries a warning of what America might become if good people do nothing… I have to admit, I kept thinking about the possibilities long after I finished the last chapter. I recommend this book to anyone who likes political thrillers and sometimes ponders what might be and how to avoid the pitfalls. —Deanne Durrett
