The Alcatraz Coup: A Prequel to the Red Dog Conspiracy

This book can be downloaded and read in iBooks on your Mac or iOS device.

Description

What would you do if the man you were sworn to protect ordered you to commit genocide?

Fifteen hundred years after the Catastrophe, Inventor Benjamin Kerr built the domed neo-Edwardian city-state of Bridges in the center of the former U.S. Three hundred years later, Bridges is in trouble. King Taylor Kerr is elderly, the economy is struggling, and corruption is rampant.

Forty years ago, a fence was built outside of the "Pot of Gold" — the city proper — to keep out the growing numbers of homeless. This number has increased to over a hundred thousand, whole generations knowing nothing but life in the tent camps.

Xavier Alcatraz is head of the Palace Guard. When King Taylor is assassinated by his son Polansky, who then gives the order to slaughter everyone outside the fence, Xavier must choose between his vows and his conscience, making a choice which will affect Bridges for generations to come.

Set 100 years before the Red Dog Conspiracy series, this dark, violent story brings you a collision of science fiction, steampunk, and war fiction with a story reminiscent of Black Hawk Down, set in an neo-Edwardian city gone mad.

The Alcatraz Coup has no spoilers for the Red Dog Conspiracy steampunk noir series and can be read at any time.

The history of the city of Bridges

Good story about the civil uprising that changed Bridges. Thugs and other undesirables become necessary to prevent genocide. But they all have an agenda of their own. Surprise ending.
