Item description for Destiny Restored by Arthur Becker...

On a near-future election eve, aging senior US intelligence officer Jeremiah Jackson is worried. Marriage a shambles, numbing caseload on his desk, and country floundering amid moral crisis and terrorist warfare, it's Jackson's job to hold together a disintegrating twenty-first century America. But how? With his sister-in-law mesmerized by a charismatic terrorist leader and evidence mounting daily of American involvement in his plans, Jackson must also consider the goals of industrialist Jonathan Galt. Scion of Ayn Rand's steelmaker, Galt heads a group with plans for the beautiful but doomed space station, Ad Astra. Amid the shards of his personal life, how is Jackson to keep America from raveling at the seams? Ultimately, with the world in a tail spin toward barbarism, a grand gesture of love points the way for America to rediscover a destiny in which Jackson will play a vital role.

Reviews - What do customers think about Destiny Restored?

Destiny Restored  Feb 24, 2003
"Destiny Restored"is a must read for anyone concerned with the preservation and/or the expansion of the freedoms taken for granted by many Americans and citizens of other countries constituting the so called Free World. The uniqeness of the "Destiny Restored"plot, its highly effective presentation and constant turns held my attention at a level where I found it difficult to put the book down when called upon to tend to non reading matters; I simply found that I always wanted to turn the page to see what further surprise was in store . The book
reflects the author's broad knowledge of world cultures, political and intelligence systems, the space program,technology,religion, and history which Mr.Becker draws upon extensively to impart a tale most timely in light of recent terrorist events .He does so with the kind of magic common only to imaginative skilled authors."Destiny Restored" caused me to reflect on the potential for humankind to improve its lot and the current constraints it confronts in doing so.It is a first rate easy read, exciting story, power packed with mystery and technical/historical facts that serve to enhance the knowledge of its reader.I was surprised by its conclusion but encouraged by the message it imparted.I anxiously await Mr.Becker's sequel
and highly recommend the reading of this book to folks concerned with worldly destiny.
Genius....Thought Provoking  Sep 26, 2002
I absolutely loved this novel! How Mr. Becker ties together moral, ethical, religious, family issues together, was genius!! It made myself question my own "Destiny"...Then how he writes about Aerospace technology is so thought provoking....I was truly amazed at this novel and cannot wait for another novel from Mr. Becker!!!
Exciting, Thought-Provoking  Sep 4, 2002
I enjoyed this book immensely. The subject matter is very timely -- the characters are interesting and real -- the plot is exciting and suspenseful. The story flows. It really gave me something to think about.
Destiny Restored is Engrossing!  Aug 29, 2002
Destiny Restored is a wake-up call. It's a gripping tale about a group of Americans in the near future who recognize that their country has been taken from them. But the means of restoration are at hand, made possible by a convergence of the best in the human spirit and the pace of techological innovation.
Jeremiah Jackson is a sympathetic protagonist, an aging intelligence officer fighting the triple demons of terrorism, his failing marriage, and his failing country. But his deductive skills are as sharp as ever. He weaves his way through a maze of suspicious characters who are planning a cataclysm, and he finds redemption in the end for the good guys, himself, and his own relationship.
The novel presumes to reach wide, and it succeeds. It is action, mystery, history, social commentary, and love rolled into one. It is hope grown from hopelessness. The reader readily identifies with the reasons for Jackson's emotional downcasts, and then accompnaies him on his struggles to solve an intricate intelligence puzzle. Along the way the reader gasps at revelations of the inhumane audacity of the bad guys, marvels at the clever application of new technology, and wonders all the while at how and why this country has abandoned so much good in the span of mere generations. And finally, the reader nods with approval at the courage and selfless commitment of the individual.
The astute reader quickly picks up references to Ayn Rand, Alexis deToqueville, Cato the Elder, and others, but the truly discerning reader enjoys discovering subtler allusions to Allan Bloom and certain contemporary celebrities.
Destiny Restored's timeliness is also remarkable, projecting global terrorism and the worsening culture wars as the chief threats to America's survival as we know it. But the epic backdrop doesn't smother the personal interactions. Particularly moving scenes include the good-bye from a loving daughter to her parents, the display of humanity exhibited by the diverse group of adventurers at the point of their embarkation, and the pouring out of two good people's individual feelings as they struggle to survive, and revive, a failed marriage. To say nothing of a surprising, redemptive reconciliation at book's end.
Completing the emotional spectrum is good old-fashioned excitement. Here are saboteurs caught and uniquely punished, a chase, a dogfight, and even an out-of-body experience.
It's a great read.
Great First Book  Aug 29, 2002
My wife reads a lot of romance and mystery books. She thoroughly enjoyed this book and is looking forward to Arthur Becker's next book, which she hopes will be a sequel to "Destiny Restored". The plot kept her quessing right up to the end.
