Make America Great Again“Make America Great Again”

by Bo Bancroft

Kirkus calls it “a nimble political satire that should appeal to Americans of all persuasions…reminiscent of Christopher Buckley’s books”. Suspected terrorists attack with a wave of bombs before dawn, confusing law enforcement as the only targets are the towering billboards lining the highways. The long list of culprits includes eco-terrorists, a notorious drug cartel and disgruntled outdoor advertising employees. With Georgians on edge, politicians quickly focus on how to handle the situation. Caught in the crosshairs are the three adult Worthington siblings. Not only was their outdoor advertising business attacked, but the youngest brother, a retired Army demolitions expert, suspiciously disappeared. So the family hires their army buddy to find him. The web she eventually discovers is far more nefarious than the terrorists.
