“Divided We Stand” by Howard Steinberg is a suspenseful, literary thriller. Political power plays, international intrigue, and sexual liaisons that catapult into murder are tightly plotted in this heart-pounding, action-packed thriller.
The book takes place in the near future, and the United States no longer exists as we know it — now shattered into five contentious nations. Marcel Crisp, a multiracial renowned journalist, accepts a position in one of the new nation’s governments, all the while secretly plotting with other patriots to re-unite the United States of America. Liberals and conservatives clash, as separatist factions force their own special interests to the forefront, but Marcel Crisp must find a way to reunify the five New America nations as they all face a deadly international nuclear threat.
Author Howard Steinberg was educated at the University of Illinois and UCLA and was awarded an Atomic Energy Commission Postdoctoral Fellowship at MIT. Steinberg’s expertise in military defense work, his in-depth knowledge of ballistic missiles, and his years of service as President of the U.S. Borax Research Corporation brings a credibility to this book’s explosive tale of a nation shattered by greed and special interest groups, in need of a hero who can bring about reunification.
