George Polk Award-winning investigative reporter Ward Lucas pulls back the lace curtain with Neighbors at War! The Creepy Case Against Your Homeowner’s Association.

Did you know that, Lucas asks, that when you joined your HOA you essentially surrendered all of your rights under the U.S. Constitution?
Did you know that Ward Lucas has more than 40 years of experience in the investigative field, and a shelf packed with more than 70 awards to prove it? He was the first reporter to cover major stories like the D.B. Cooper hijacking and the Ted Bundy murders.
He says the misdeeds of HOA boards are the latest American crime wave, and much of their work is supported by high court decisions.
Corruption. Embezzlement. Violence. Foreclosure. Lucas covers it all, from a single mom losing her house for inadvertently underpaying her annual dues by 78 cents to a neighborhood manager ordering workers to poison a homeowner's pets.
Lucas says that while HOAs were theoretically created to protect property values, there is strong incentive for HOA board officers to "go rogue," abusing fellow homeowners emotionally, economically and sometimes physically. When that happens, he says, neighborhoods are torn apart, property values plummet and lives are ruined.
Your freedom is at risk. Your Constitutional rights are being shredded. Neighbors at War! tells you why. More importantly, it tells you how to fight back and protect yourself, your family and your finances.
