Stop everything, Steven Seagal has written a book starting, well himself of course.
The book follows John Nan Tan Gode, an Arizona Tribal police officer, described on the first page of the book as having “classic chiseled features,” who stumbles upon a conspiracy that reaches the highest levels of power. It is, in other words, a written adaptation of a Steven Seagal movie by Steven Seagal himself, a casting suggested most prominently by its cover, in which the legendary lawman saunters brow-a-furrowed out of some sort of wolf sunset.
But it is also much more than that, built in the mode of so many religious and political “novels” transparently dramatizing their ideologies with a low-rent narrative, ranging from The Omega Codeback to, well, Atlas Shrugged. The book synopsis touts the bona fides of Seagal and his co-author, Tom Morrissey:
Shadow Wolves is a book of fiction based on reality. Both author’s (sic) have worked with, confronted, and seen the power of the Deep State and the manner in which many federal government agencies willfully violate the Constitution and the laws of the land in service to special interests.
The 2016 election has for the first time made many American citizens aware that the Deep State is very real; that the mainstream media is a fake news media offering a false narrative designed by the secret intelligence world in service to special interests.
I am so ordering this
