Phoenix in the Middle of the Road by J.R. Bale is in official launch mode, now available on Amazon in paperback and Kindle.
Synopsis: David Grant, former businessman and current academic, is coaxed into running for Congress as an Independent. In doing so, he enters the challenging and bizarre world of national politics, testing his abilities and straining his moral compass.
Meanwhile, a series of intensely partisan agendas unfold, causing a series of dominoes to fall, ultimately bringing the country to its knees in a constitutional crisis. Grant finds himself in a unique position to save the country, yet it might also destroy what he values most: his family and his integrity.
This gripping epic captures the passion, nuance and complexity of modern politics, yet never forgets the humanity of its participants.
