Instruments of the State
An epic tale of espionage and deception at the highest levels of government, this controversial work of reality fiction takes a hard look at the vicious cycle of war and corruption in a system gone awry.
The Cold War is a fading memory, and a New World Order looms. As the Millennium approaches, a gang of powerbrokers are working on a scheme to control the world’s resources. First they need to convince the American people -- the paymasters of the lone remaining military superpower -- that their security is at risk. Americans need to fear that a new enemy is lurking like none they have ever known. And so they shall.
A shadowy operative named Vu has been activated for the plan. Decades ago, his family was killed by napalm bombs during the Vietnam War, yet Vu still struggles with his violent past. Now a skilled assassin and a veteran of countless espionage operations, he has a chance at redemption.
The global drug trade, mind control and the corporate media all come together as Vu, his underworld associates and the powerbrokers work their evil magic. Framed in the events leading up to 9/1l, it’s a winner-take-all proposition, and murder and mayhem make for a surprise ending in this epic tale of espionage and suspense.
