American home wrecker : a work of fiction / by Lori Townsend ; edited by David Holthouse and Monica Gokey.


In the first of a new series of thriller novels, we meet no-nonsense news reporter Zilla Gillette. After witnessing her mother's murder as a small child, Gillette is raised by a father who is determined she will always be able to defend herself. Years of martial arts training by her late father shapes Zilla into an unyielding reporter. Now in Alaska, she always meets her deadline and she'll do anything to get the story, especially in regards to exposing a racist militia group she suspects is responsible for homicides in Anchorage. The militia is led by "General" Alex Burke, a Vietnam veteran who is bitter about the direction of the country and who plans a revolution to seize leadership and create New Patriot Alaska before advancing his plan to take America back. To help recruit citizen soldiers to the Double Eagle Patriots militia, Burke enlists the skills of the seductively evil Jamie Lynn Carter, who is only too happy to woo new troops and kill detractors. Her beauty is an asset to the General's plans, but her taste for illegal drugs becomes a deadly point of contention. With the help of astute fellow reporter Ray Walker, her friend Mo Scott, and the intriguing head of homicide Sergeant August Platonovich, Zilla risks her life to report on this well-armed, murderous group bent on destruction.
