“In 1939, just before the outbreak of World War II, the government of the Commonwealth of Massachusetts established an amazing reservoir of fresh water which came to be known as “The Quabbin”. The Indian word for Many Waters, the reservoir is a system of dams and aqueducts, put in place in the western section of the state, called the Swift River Valley. The waterways that “In 1939, just before the outbreak of World War II, the government of the Commonwealth of Massachusetts established an amazing reservoir of fresh water which came to be known as “The Quabbin”. The Indian word for Many Waters, the reservoir is a system of dams and aqueducts, put in place in the western section of the state, called the Swift River Valley. The waterways that made up the Swift River, then began to form a large body of water that would eventually exceed four hundred and fifty billion gallons of water.” Seventy years later this system of fresh water continues to supply the city of Boston and some of the surrounding towns with water. But at the time of the creation of the dam, four well established villages in the Swift River Valley had to be erased by eminent domaine. Six thousand bodies were exhumed and transferred to grave sites outside the valley. The lives of thousands of people were disrupted, some never recovered. This story is about one family that never really got over the taking of their lands in the township of Dana, Massachusetts. Their story became a violent threat to the well being and safety of a whole generation. It would take all the forces of Homeland Security, and the military skills of Agent Joe Maki to reign in this terrorist threat. Robert M. Johnson has created a work of fiction in this present novel that explores the nature of homegrown terrorism. This concept had been without foundation until the attack on the Alfred P. Murrah building by Timothy McVeigh in April of 1995. Terrorism on American soil comes in many forms. In the present story, it is focused on the water supply of the City of Boston, MA. Homeland Counter-Terrorism Agent, Joe Maki will be called upon to thwart the plan of western Massachusetts right wing militia men who want revenge against the state. For them, Quabbin Reservoir is a symbol of all that is wrong with American government. They aim to rectify this problem! You won’t be able to put this one down!

    This was about a home-grown terror attack on the Quabbin Reservoir and the Swift River Valley. It was very fast moving and interesting.
