Newly home from fighting Somali Pirates, Captain Jackson is outraged about the light bulb ban—and, in a high-stakes wager that the ban will be overturned, decides to start a light bulb company. Unbeknownst to Captain Jackson, Al Qaida has launched new terrorism efforts that use compact fluorescent light bulbs as weapons of terror.
As the novel progresses, Captain Jackson is thrown into increasingly precarious positions, facing off against a ruthlessly corrupt congressman, a crony corporate executive, and a progressive media star intent on preserving their own power and pushing the light bulb ban forward at all costs. Captain Jackson finds himself a fugitive on the run for his life. The novel culminates at Fort Sumter, South Carolina, where once again, conflict threatens to tear the union apart.
“The 100 Watt War celebrates entrepreneurship while also exploring the limits of legislative power,” says Wilder. “It asks tough questions about the fallout of government overreach and offers some troubling scenarios about the future state of freedom.” Advance reviewers recommend The 100 Watt War for fans of Tom Clancy, Vince Flynn, and Ayn Rand.
The 100 Watt War is available for download on Kindle and other e-book formats and as a paperback.
