New Political Thriller Calls for Constitutional Convention

“Ops Populi: Inception” Sets the stage for America’s Future

Fredericksburg, VA – August 3, 2009 — A billionaire patriot and philanthropist, Martin Lochridge, discovers what is to be his legacy in a lecture hosted by a small non-profit in Maine. He spends the next 10 years forming Ops Populi, the secretive organization that ultimately will put his legacy into action: a massive campaign for a peoples’ constitutional convention which will, he hopes, result in a United States where the ideals of the Founders can finally be attained and where the potential to end human suffering can be realized.

But the person who inspired Ops Populi – political scientist and National Guardsman, Sean May – is immersed in a ring of corruption with his unwitting companion, Virginia Burress, and Lochridge must first rescue them from their perilous quagmire in order to have any hope of May’s help in implementing Ops Populi’s plans.

When an injury in Iraq sends him on a spiral onto the streets poor and destitute, his only chance for happiness may be one caring woman and a piece of evidence that could damn several corrupt individuals higher up. “Inception” is an absorbing novel of political intrigue and patriotism.”
