Brownout is a romantic/political/social and crime suspense novel with strong love/sex themes as well as legal action. It deals with life in the Philippines as well as the dark side of the political and social elite who rule the planet from their bases in the USA and other nations. Rick Daly is a tenth man, one who attracts trouble without any effort on his part.
Falsely accused of a sexual crime in the Philippines Rick Daly loses his freedom as well as his business. A clash of cultures as well as his own naïveté sees his life spiraling out of control. A prison escape amounts merely to a change of jails. In a world where political correctness has gone mad, the rich prosper, many honest individuals are forced to the wall and a cynical disregard for values other than the dollar is decaying society from within, Rick almost loses his soul. Crime follows punishment and it is his very success at drug and arms dealing that causes Rick to finally face his demons.
Difficult to put down and including erotic scenes, this is a high octane adventure, which will take the reader into a sea of cultural and ethical flashpoints, while exposing the huge cracks in the world’s current political and social order. This novel will appeal to the millions who suspect that humanity is collectively heading along the primrose path.
Rick Daly must learn to succeed at love as well as business but he has chosen one hell of a proving field – the Philippines. While he finds his ideal woman, Marilyn, his few remaining relatives, who live in the U.S., are steamrollered by a collapsed superannuation fund and an avaricious bank. The Neo-Con financial culture effectively murders his uncle. His fate draws Rick into contact with an ex-Nazi and Islamic rebels in Mindanao. Imprisonment in the Philippines, Australia and finally the USA causes Rick to turn to crime. His very success at his latest endeavor results in a personal catharsis. Sex, money, and power are not enough. Rick discovers necessary spiritual values and the real meaning of the swastika.
