Peter O'Brien

Author Peter O'Brienabout this book: United States of Arson is a political thriller from a different perspective. It looks at the other side of the coin and shows how a plot of domestic terrorism can develop in one's own backyard. The "heroes" are not so because of their actions, but because of their ideals. United States of Arson is full of history and socially relevant issues, all of which add to the psychological motivation of the characters. The characters act upon that deep-seeded desire that lies in each of us; the desire to change the way things are. United States of Arson is intended for those that do not subscribe to the traditional good versus evil template.

The events and characters of United States of Arson are the culmination of seven years worth of work. The story was developed and researched over a period of five years, with an additional two years of writing and revising. It began as an idea for a short story and then evolved into an idea for a novella, and finally ended up as a 90,000 word novel.
