Mass Murder Fiction is Sure to Make Conservatives Smile

On the heels of the Republican-controlled and -led U.S. House of Representatives passing a $1.1 trillion cromnibus spending bill, I thought I’d share an excerpt from my just-released crime-fiction mystery novel, The National Bet. Shown below, it’s guaranteed to make conservatives smile — even if it only takes place inside a fiction novel:

No longer willing to accept such political posturing and double-speak, Americans began calling for resignations and launching recall petitions.

Amidst news reports about ammunition and body armor sales going through the roof, the nation’s top elected officials began to sense the end was near, that the tipping point had finally arrived. And they were right.

On Tuesday, June 30, 2015, President Obama, Vice President Joe Biden and leaders of both the House and Senate heard from members of Congress, state governors, and others from a wide array of academic, business and professional groups of a loose-knit coalition of people with long track records of supporting limited government. Their demands were clear: resign immediately or face criminal prosecution on a laundry list of charges, up to and including treason.

If that doesn’t whet your appetite enough, you can read other excerpts from the book here, here and here.

First Review of The National Bet: ‘It’s A Nice Job’

The action in my just-released first crime-fiction thriller, The National Bet, takes place in several locations around the world. Because one is Effingham, Ill., I mailed a copy of the 368-page paperback to Bill Grimes, a veteran reporter at the Effingham Daily News. Today, I received the mini-review below, via Facebook:

Bob McCarty probably shouldn’t work too hard on his Pulitzer acceptance speech just yet, but The National Bet, McCarty’s first novel, is an entertaining read. Much of the book centers around the fictitious Effingham Chemical Company in a very real Effingham, Illinois. It’s the story of how FBI agent Joe-L Wilson and his team solve an act of terrorism that kills upwards of 30,000 people. McCarty does a good job of leading us down false roads, much as any good mystery writer would do, before we find out who the actual culprits are. Interestingly, he plugs one of his previous non-fiction books in this book. I guess people do that. All in all, it’s a nice job from Bob McCarty Writes.

Shouldn’t work too hard on my Pulitzer acceptance speech? Why not!

Regardless of that minor dig, I’m looking forward to reading a full-length review of the book in an upcoming edition of the Daily News.
