Abuse of Power

Michael Savage

Former war correspondent Jack Hatfield rose to national prominence for his insightful, provocative commentary. But after being smeared as a bigot and extremist by a radical leftist media-watchdog group, his career came crashing down. Now an obscure freelance news producer in San Francisco, Hatfield is going about his business one afternoon when, during a ride-along with the SFPD bomb squad, a seemingly routine carjacking turns deadly. When police find several pounds of military-grade explosives in the jacked car--and the FBI urges Hatfield to look the other way--he knows he's onto his next, big story...

Soon Hatfield finds himself following a shadowy trail that will take him across the globe, from Tel Aviv to London and Paris and back again, as he works with a stunning Yemeni intelligence agent and a veteran Green Beret to expose a powerful Islamist terrorist group with a plot to rival 9/11 and whose goal is nothing less than total political control--no matter what the cost...

He is a conservative American radio host, author, and political commentator. He is the host of The Michael Savage Show, which is syndicated across the U.S. in over 300 markets.

In 2007, his media presence and profile earned him the Freedom of Speech Award from Talkers Magazine. In 2009, he was banned from entering the United Kingdom, for allegedly "seeking to provoke others to serious criminal acts and fostering hatred". He is the author of more than 25 books. As Michael Weiner, he writes books on herbal medicine and homeopathy. As Michael Savage, he has written several political books including The Savage Nation: Saving America from the Liberal Assault on Our Borders, Language and Culture, The Enemy Within: Saving America from the Liberal Assault on Our Schools, Faith, and Military, Liberalism Is a Mental Disorder, The Political Zoo, and Trickle up Poverty: Stopping Obama's Attack on Our Borders, Economy, and Security. He has also written a novel, Abuse of Power, which is a fictionalized account of being banned from the United Kingdom and hunted by overbearing governments.

Reviews

Review by Library Journal (2012-03-01)

Best-selling author and popular talk-show host Savage offers the listener a taut political thriller. Wrongly disgraced journalist Jack Hatfield happens upon a story during a routine ride-along that turns into a globe-trotting adventure to prevent a terrorist attack bigger than September 11. While it starts slow, the plot progresses quite nicely.

Verdict: While Savage is a bit heavy on political insight, he still delivers a good story. Peter Larkin's narration adds to the enjoyment, with accurate accents and pacing.

[The St. Martin's Ac, published in September, was a New York Times best seller; the Nb, also by St. Martin's, will publish in May 2012.-Ed.] - Scott R. -DiMarco, Mansfield Univ. of Pennsylvania Lib.
