David Thomas Roberts', "Purge on the Potomac," finds iconic Texas Ranger, Pops Younger, at the crossroads of his legendary career faced with defying his oath of office to defend the Constitution against all enemies-foreign and domestic. A bloated federal government that has overreached its authority and encroached on Texans' civil rights has ignited the passions and ire of an extreme element determined to alter the course of normal politics forever. Conflicted with his life-long dedication to the rule of law, Younger must choose between following the law or taking a stand against modern-day tyranny, leading to suspenseful cataclysmic events.

Roberts’ twisted tale is filled with motifs that seem almost like the new normal in the current American political life: rumors of rigged elections, Russian involvement, a power-hungry leadership, and the failure of moderates to act for a just cause - all for the sake of staying in office.
Purge on the Potomac by David Thomas Roberts, focusing on the grit and ethics of men like Younger and highlighting the dogged sense of independence that Texans, in general, seem to exude. A few glimpses of the characters’ private lives and tenderer feelings give emotional tone to this hard-edged and sometimes violent saga.– Chanticleer Reviews (Five Star Review)
