"Escape from America" is a spine-chilling novel of suspense and intrigue that warns of what America could become. "I remember standing within the magnificent arch of the Old Town Bridge Tower and looking across the Medieval Charles Bridge. The skyline of Prague was dominated by the Cathedral of Saint Vitus; its spotlit spires piercing the night-a citadel of hope. "Hope. What a glorious word. Much of my life had been a battle against cynicism. By emigrating to America I felt I would find freedom to continue my search for truth. "How could I have foreseen the major political shifts that would occur in the two most powerful nations in the world? "When the new "politically correct" regime came to power in the U.S., I found myself asking over and over: 'Why did I ever leave the Soviet Union to come to the United States? And how can I escape from America?' " The author, Wallace Henley, author of many books, has been a journalist and columnist for a daily newspaper. He also served as a lecturer, editor and staff assistant to Richard Nixon during the final days of the Watergate Scandal. Widely traveled, he has taught in the former Soviet Union. He is now a pastor in Houston.
