New York Times best-selling author Ben Shapiro's new novel asks how close are we to our country's collapse - and will we be able to stop it once it begins?
America is coming apart. An illegal immigration crisis has broken out along America's Southern border, there are race riots in Detroit, a fiery female rancher-turned-militia leader has vowed revenge on the president for his arrogant policies, and the world's most notorious terrorist is planning a massive attack that could destroy the United States as we know it. Meanwhile the president is too consumed by legacy-seeking to see our country's deep peril.
Brett Hawthorne is the youngest general in the United States Army - and he's stuck, alone, behind enemy lines in Afghanistan. He's the last lost soldier of a failed war, fighting to stay alive and make it back home - but will he be able to stop the collapse of America in time?

Ben Shapiro's first novel was engaging and well written. Here's hoping there is a sequel in the works. Unfortunately, the narrator is one of the worst I've heard. Character portrayals were average but his voice when serving as the narrator was awful and distracting.
A good listen. Michener sized topic. Would have taken 1,000 pages to fully develop the story line and given it life... Looking forward to more polished work in the future from Mr. Shapiro

True Allegiance is an amazing story that keeps you glued to the pages or your headphones depending on what format you're listening to. Shapiro draws from real life public figures to craft his characters in an almost uncanny way. While this book is fiction the parallels to our world are not too far off.
I like this genre of story, so I took a chance on what was for me an unknown author. I'm familiar with Ben from his show and his speeches on campus. I like him and his viewpoint a lot.
The writing was just OK. The story slightly less so. The characters were not real, but sort of cartoonish. But, I could be wrong about the writing. It was virtually impossible to evaluate through the AWFUL narration.
Every so often I would think that the narration was computer generated, but then the narrator would place the inflection on a word that not even a poor algorithm would choose. It was very distracting.
Ambitious debut novel by an ambitious man - and Shapiro came through big time! There has to be a sequel in the works! Narrator was kind of a happy robot though.
