In this short novel, a shocking and unprecedented national crisis has erupted just one week before Americans head to the polls. The incumbent Democratic president has been assassinated by an Iranian national.
Although there is no evidence, the government of Iran is quickly accused in the media as the mastermind behind the shooting as an act of retaliation for the severe economic sanctions imposed by the United States. Another stunning setback occurs when the vice-president is felled by a fatal heart attack just hours after taking the oath. Enter the Republican Speaker of the House who becomes the third president in than a day as the reins of power shift to the GOP. The election must be postponed while the Democrats select a new ticket.
Sensing weakness in the caretaker US government, Iran threatens that sanctions must be revoked within days or they will launch an attack in the Persian Gulf to shut down the supply of oil.
The world nervously awaits the outcome.
I responsabili del massacro della scorta di un carico d’argento danno filo da torcere a Tex Willer, ma alla fine vengono sconfitti. E a Tombstone, sempre per merito di Aquila della Notte, cala il sipario anche su un altro manigoldo, il gambler Wendell. Mesi dopo, a Great Falls, nel nord del Montana, Tex e il capitano delle Giubbe Rosse Jim Brandon si incontrano per caso in un saloon. I due amici hanno la stessa missione: prelevare dalla galera locale un pericoloso sobillatore con mire rivoluzionarie, Roger Goudret. In questo numero: da pag. 5 a pag.
86, si conclude l’avventura precedente (disegni di Nicolò); da pag. 87 a pag. 114, “Missione a Great Falls” (disegni di Fusco).
Sixteen-year-old John Pulkis faces disaster: he’s got two tickets to the Doobie Brothers concert at the Vancouver Coliseum in eight days—and he’s lost them! It’s not about the money, although that was plenty—fourteen dollars, a month’s allowance. No, he needs those tickets, for only they will give him the courage to do what he otherwise cannot: ask Sue Nielsen for a date. As a would-be astronomer, he decides to apply the scientific method: a systematic search, complete with graph paper. But as the tickets continue to elude him, his thoughts turn dark.
He starts to wonder what the options are for cowards like himself, and remembers his socials teacher talking to the class about suicide. . . . Loosely based on real-life events in Vancouver in 1975 and dedicated to the memory of an inspiring high-school teacher, The Thought Dial is a reminder that teenage life can be passionate—and the stakes can be high.
