Steve Pieczenik Synopses: State of Emergency is a standalone title by Steve Pieczenik. Four states (Utah, Colorado, Wyoming and Arizona) are threatening to secede from the Union and want full military control of their borders. If their demands are not met, they will destroy the Glen Canyon Dam in Arizona. With the president and vice president overseas, immediate responsibility falls to Secretary of State Barbara Reynolds. But Reynolds finds herself negotiating within a web of deceit and betrayal where it’s impossible to tell who’s on which side… and it can change in an instant.

In Active Measures by Alexander Court (Steve Pieczenik), an American physician is chosen by the U.S. government for a chilling assignment: contact a fellow doctor obsessed with medical genocide – and assassinate him.
