Glenn Rogers Releases New Frontier ThrillerGlenn Rogers Releases New Frontier Thriller
by BWW News Desk - Jul 7, 2015

Philosophy Professor, Dr. Glenn Rogers has written a frontier thriller where two young men face unimagined challenges and overwhelming odds as they set out across a war-torn frontier to bring their parents' killers to justice. The title of Dr. Rogers' book is: 'The Colemans Book 1 The Reckoning.' In the Prolog of his thriller, Rogers writes: Whatever honor may be possible in the seemingly unavoidable conflicts that arise between men of differing ideologies, if indeed there can be any at all, is turned to shame by men who use the conflict to justify brutality and enhance their own personal position. Such was the case April 14, 1865. In Washington, D.C., Abraham Lincoln was assassinated. In the region of Cumberland, Kentucky, a band of renegades dressed as Union soldiers raided several farms, murdering, looting, and burning as they went, setting in motion a chain of events that would forever change the lives of two young men. The young Coleman brothers face incredible challenges as they leave the hills of Kentucky for the first time in search of their parents' killers. Though capable young men, Caleb, seventeen, and Zack, fifteen, could not have anticipated the events that awaited them beyond the friendly hills of the Cumberland. They also could not have anticipated what they would learn about their father. Knowing him only as an outdoorsman and a Kentucky farmer, they are surprised to learn of his former life as a famous mountain man. Everywhere they stop, it seems someone knows his name. Over the next few months, the Coleman brothers would learn that there was a side to their father they knew nothing about. And in coping with the harsh realities of life beyond the hills of Kentucky, in pursuit of a pack of ruthless killers, the brothers also learn a great deal about themselves. When the brothers finally catch up with the killers, they are seriously outnumbered as they match wits, muscle, and skill with the men who murdered their parents. The Colemans is not at all a typical 'western,' but a thoughtful and thought provoking story about two young men who wrestle with the difference between justice and revenge, and responsibilities and obligations as they struggle to be the men their parents raised them to be. Rogers, who was born in Kentucky, is a history buff and has always been interested in the time frame in which The Colemans is set. He spent hundreds of hours researching the various aspects of life in 1864 America: the location of towns, bridges, roads, rivers and creeks, distances, weapons, and more, so that his story would historically authentic. 'The Colemans Book 1 The Reckoning' is now available through Amazon as a kindle book, a paperback, or hardback. All of Glenn Rogers' novels are displayed on his website: booksbyglennrogers.net.
