The BookViral Review:

A compelling Political Thriller & Suspense Novel framed in an alternative history with big ideas woven into it readers seeking an intelligent and thought-provoking read won’t be disappointed with “The Plot To Save America” exploring subversive notions about integrity, liberty, and political change.

For readers who appreciate meticulous story-craft and the ability to dodge broad genre clichés it certainly delivers with its taut, smart and satisfying plot.  But where too many releases in the Political Thrillers & Suspense genre serve up perfunctory backstories, hard-boiled cliché and dialogue that leans heavily on exposition Azrieli gives us something refreshingly original as he offers an alternative ending to the United States Capitol attack of January 6th 2021 and explores a radically different future under a second Trump administration.

A USA in which civility and co-existence is slipping away and fear has been used to justify a police state as the rule of law and the rights of men have all but been destroyed by sectarian malice and nationalistic recklessness.

Writing in any genre has its pitfalls but one of the challenges of writing an edge-of-your-seat thriller is knowing what emotions and patterns are expected whilst finding original ways to deliver them and Azrieli achieves this with consummate ease. He’s patient with his narrative allowing scenes to play out until a point is made yet never to the detriment of suspense.

More occupied with mystery and intrigue than action The Plot to Save America is narrated by Death Penalty Investigator #1645 and exerts a grim fascination that demands attention even as you want to turn away from it. The plot is driven by Azrieli’s flair for dialogue and vibrant well-observed characters with #1645 making an intriguing protagonist who creates that all-important human connection as he comes to question his beliefs.

Of course, even the best characters would matter little if the dramatic segments were poorly executed and here Azrieli gives us plenty of tension and suspense that give way to a series of narrative payoffs. He builds up expectations in order to upend them with timely and shocking reveals. Priming us for a deplorable conclusion to #1645’s investigation whilst an overarching sense of realism prevails throughout.

Serving as a cautionary tale that the only thing we will have to fear in any version of the future is ourselves The Plot to Save America proves a superb read and is unreservedly recommended.
