John Winsor’s new thriller, The Punishments, is now available in hardcover, paperback and e-book. Enormous shifts threaten our way of life – artificial intelligence, robotics, terrorism, surveillance, Islamic fundamentalism, and the rise of American religious extremism. The Punishments is about the heart-pounding struggle of one family after voters unwittingly elect a demagogue president and a fundamentalist Congress. The novel’s characters battle to hold on to friendship, love, and faith as they are thrust into the center of the largely unreported debate raging beneath the surface of Christianity and identity politics. Welcome to tomorrow. Outed covert CIA agent, Valerie Plame, says, “The Punishments is an entertaining Orwellian thriller.” The Punishments e-book will be specially priced at 99 cents until October 15th.
