Book Two. Gordon Ryan. PUBLISHED BY: Pegasus Publishing. If you have first obtained a copy of Book Two, Uncivil Liberties, I strongly recommend that you acquire State of Rebellion, Book One in the series, where I introduced a new character, Pádraig Pug Connor, who initially is a career Marine Corps officer. In Book Two, Uncivil Liberties, Pug’s role increases dramatically and he becomes central to the plot. As I explained in the Author’s note to State of Rebellion, Pug is not the traditional, thrust-and-parry, seek-and-destroy protagonist of many thriller action heroes.

Cameron Rossiter and Pug Connor settled in to wait for the return of the landing party. Cameron went below and retrieved a tin of crackers, diced up a wedge of cheese, and grabbed two plastic bottles of water from the small propane fridge. He returned on deck and handed a bottle of water and a paper napkin with cheese and crackers to Pug. Then he sat on the port railing, and both men began to eat quietly. Have you ever wondered which is worse: waiting for the team to report in, or being part of the team about to go into action? Pug nodded his understanding

General Pug Connor, United States Marine Corps, and Carlos Castro, Sergeant Major, United States Marine Corps, Retired, sat in the general’s office while Connor listened to the party on the other end of his telephone. He was silent, nodding occasionally, and then hung up the instrument.

General Pug Connor, United States Marine Corps, and Carlos Castro, Sergeant Major, United States Marine Corps, Retired, sat in the general’s office while Connor listened to the party on the other end of his telephone. A two-kiloton nuclear explosion at Hoover Dam, he said to Carlos. That’s all they have so far. It’s Wolff, Carlos replied. I should have slit his throat in Timor. This will change the dynamics completely.

A Strong Man; A Strong Woman; But are they strong enough to save a nation? A new president . . . A hijacked civilian airliner . . . Follow the plane . . . or shoot it down? Domestic terrorism bring America to a state of . . . Uncivil Liberties! On inauguration day, 2013, President Clay Cumberland assumes office and is immediately faced with untenable circumstances that lead to the end of his presidency. As Congress panics, Marine Corps Colonel Pug Connor faces domestic terrorism on a scale unimagined . . . and some of the terrorists are Americans. The Patriot Act is expanded, approving unprecedented legal authority to law enforcement and private security corporations. Soon, Americans learn the restrictive cost of freedom versus security. From page one, Uncivil Liberties take the reader on a thrilling ride that includes American terrorists and ends with a nuclear disaster in America. Fear makes Americans prisoners in their own homes, afraid to visit the mall, sporting events, or even to drive the highways. Uncivil Liberties gives new meaning to the freedoms inherent in our Constitution, thereby creating an America our Founding Fathers would not recognize.

No compensation of any kind was offered or accepted in exchange for reading or reviewing Uncivil Liberties.

In my mind books in a series should be able to stand alone and I'm downgrading this rating from a four to a three entirely because of the implication that we need to just buy the other books rather than expect an author to give us:
1.) some backstory as an introduction to the action and
2.) a more detailed denouement wrapping up the action at the end.
So, if it were not for the "buy more books" problem, this would be a four star book. Yes, I know other people do it. But sometimes it's not as blatant, and the fact remains that the book is missing something by leaving those things out.

That out of the way, the book introduces interesting characters, well drawn moral issues and questions of philosophy and patriotism that keep one reading and thinking when the throat grabbing introduction is concluded. And that's a good distraction because I would have liked to learn more about what the government learned about the problems encountered as the book opens. If more about the KLM jet entering US airspace without communicating was in the earlier book, the reader should not be punished for not having read that book by not getting more of the story here.

I realy did like the book and enjoyed it all the way through. There was no temptation to hurry my reading along, nor skim and skip sections to get to "the good stuff." If the plot is a bit formulaic the formula isn't bad, it's just somewhat predictable. For example we know that there is going to be some sort of love interest, even if unfulfilled or unrequited, the minute that a certain female legislator is introduced. Not a bad idea; just a predictable one.

Perhaps best of all, the author writes in clear, error free English; without using opaque for translucent nor imply for infer, and without glaring spelling errors. Unlike me and my hellacious autocorrect errors, Gordon Ryan does very well. That alone made this a happy reading experience.

The way the writer draws the characters allowed me to really liked them, at least what I got to know about them. I was disappointed that mainly it was their political stance that I got to see instead of something that would make them less characters and more the people next door. The exception was Pug and his female interest and that was handled well. I understood who most of the characters were however, even if I was drawing on the stereotypes I bring to the table in response to what the author revealed. On the other hand, I never knew who was next as the killing continued, and I was curious about who would be unmasked as the double dealing of Washington was slowly but surely revealed.

Some readers might prefer less detail and more action in their reading but for me the action was just about right. I didn't need to know about the sub mission off Australia, and I would have liked to know more about not just a large bombing in the heartland but a spate of small attacks that were happening around the country but we never read more about than a sentence or two about them and many were lumped together. That was not a huge thing for me but on my Wish List for the author in the future. A plus was that the events included were dissimilar enough to be interesting, even as they were heart rending. The comparison to the beltway shooter some years back in DC really brought much of the action home for me.

For the most part the book moved along at a good pace and I always wanted to keep reading and know more. I began this book, then stopped reading for a week while deciding whether to red book one first, finally deciding to go ahead with this one anyway. But after I began reading again the chapters flew by and I was always absorbed in the action (even though I did second guess myself about what I may be missing by not having a full understanding of the backstory.)

And yes, I did buy book three so I can continue reading the story. I'm annoyed that I have to do it, but understand what the author is trying to do to make a few extra bucks.

The second book in the Pug Conner series is just as good as the first. I picked up the first book, "State of Rebellion" as a freebie and upon completing that, rushed to buy the second and third books! The plot expands from the first book where California wants to secede from the union to the entire western U.S. joining their cause. Pug Conner is developed more in the second book, as well as the third (and from what I can find, there will be a fourth book out soon!). These books are on par with Tom Clancy's writings about Jack Ryan and the internal workings of the U.S. government, clandestine deals and corruption eating away at the foundations of the U.S. constitution. Gordan Ryan has written a great series and I intend to read and re-read these books again, as well as any others he may write with these well-developed and intricate characters.

Sorry to say I just finished Uncivil Liberties. I'm sorry to say that because I really, really didn't want it to end. It took me a while to finish it off because I knew I was near the end and just simply didn't want to part with it knowing the next in the series was not available yet. I'd read and ponder all the happenings going on and speculate on the finish. Soon I'd be back to the book reading another chapter because I couldn't stand it. Then I'd find something else to do for a while, again because I didn't want it to end. Back and forth, back and forth.

Once again, a fast paced book but still with excellent development and great depth on all characters. Yep, most all the characters from the first book ("State of Rebellion" - read it before this one) are still there and have involvement. The plot thickens deeper and deeper.

I don't want to say much as I myself try to avoid reading reviews that give away some of the story but this is an excellent read. It's just as good as "State of Rebellion". Mr. Ryan is able to captivate me, my imagination and this book really makes me seriously ponder current world events and all the possible "truths" behind what may seem like the truths out there. Naw, it's not some big conspiracy book like a Jessie Ventura work but at least for me, it really makes me think about current world events and how they might not always really be as they appear. With the background of the author, he'd be the type of person who could use his knowledge of military and politics to create a realistic plot ... and he does. Often I see in reviews for several "Indy" authors that their books are filled with grammatical mistakes. I'm not great with grammar as you can tell from my rather plain reviews but Mr. Ryan's books seem to be just as good as any high-dollar book out there. When it comes to story plots and excitement, I think he's tops!

Of course reviews are most often our personal opinions and perceptions of a book despite how well intended we are in trying to be objective but I did notice one review on this book that felt "Moderates and, especially, liberals will have difficulty wading through it. Mr. Ryan covers a political spectrum from merely conservative good guys to bad guys who are neo-con crazies." and I respectfully disagree with this. I think if you are far leaning "left" maybe you could equate to the previous reviewers opinion but I've seen good and bad from both parties in both books and I feel Mr. Ryan does a great job presenting the story as most can identify with. There are do-gooders and villains in both political parties. I suppose you could feel the same way if you are a far leaning "right" because not all Republican characters are always in it for the right reasons either nor painted in the perfect light. I think most everyone would see this as believable and realistic.

I am so tickled to have come across this series and can't wait for the future novels of this series. Keep `em coming!

Great read. I had a hard time putting this book down after I started it. All three books in the series are a good read. I am anxiously awaiting the next book in the series. Only problem is it may never be written, given that the author is having health problems. Hopefully he will recover and be able to finish the series.
