Item description for The Thor Conspiracy by Larry Burkett...
Overview In the 21st century, the world faces a single, global dictator. Lining up against the tyrannical forces are three men committed to exposing the fifty-year-old conspiracy. If they succeed, the world has a chance. If they fail, the world is doomed to the prospect of a "Fourth Reich."
It begins in the 1960s-an unimaginable series of political machinations leading to one act of greed and destruction after another, until in the twenty-first century, the world faces a single, global dictator. Behind the takeover is an odd, yet frighteningly effective, alliance of international governments and inner-city gangs.
Lining up against the tyrannical forces are three men, each committed to exposing the fifty-year-old conspiracy, and together capable of mounting an undeniably formidable resistance. If they succeed, the world has a chance. If they fail, the world is doomed to the prospect of a "Fourth Reich." The key to the world's future is The Thor Conspiracy.
Previously published by Nelson Books, The Thor Conspiracy has sold 50,000 copies.

Reviews - What do customers think about The Thor Conspiracy?
It goes to show what can happen to America if she turns on Israel. Sep 29, 2008
This was a really good book. It shows just how bad things can get here in America in the event of a second great depression. This two book series also shows what happens to a nation that turns it's back on Israel. God said to Abraham in Genesis, "I will bless those that bless you and curse those that curse you." In the first book of this series, The Illuminati, the US actually TURNS ON Israel. America goes through some very rocky times with the next depression and people losing their personal freedoms. Here in this book, America has gone from being a free, prosperous nation to a totalitarian, impoverished nation. It just goes to show what can happen to America should she turn on Israel.
It also goes to show what can happen if gun ownership is outlawed. You will be at the mercy of violent street gangs. It even indicates in this book about law abiding citizens going to prison just for owning guns. If citizens have no means to defend themselves they would be at the mercy of outlaws and thugs mentioned in this book. One thing Burkette didn't mention was the gangs most certainly also practiced rape and forcing young women to be prostitutes. that have to have been practiced on a large scale. One other thing Burkette should have done was more research on Gangs. sorry if i sound nitpicky, but he mentions a crip in this book being of latino ethnicity. Since he was latino, Burkette should have made him Mexican Mafia, 18th St. Gang, or MS 13(Mara Salvatrucha). Crips are, for the most part, an African American gang.
Good book though, it shows an ordinary, docile, man manning up and doing the right thing in taking action against the evil totalitarian regime that has taken part in America. It somewhat reminds me of the book of Judges.
Loved It!!!!!!!!!!! Dec 4, 2007
Great book. I read this in college after reading the majority of Illuminati. I could not put the book down because some of the things that took place in the book matched what was going on in the world at the time. Never mind how long I have been out of college but you get the picture. As a conspiracy buff, I was eating it up. This is a must read!!!!!!!!!!
Worst novel I've ever read. Jun 2, 2006
From start to finish this is the worst novel I have ever read. It is poorly written. Every character is a completely undeveloped stereotype. Dialogue is absurdly bland, predictable, and repetitive.
In addition to these flaws, The Thor Conspiracy is presented in an annoying manner. All character thoughts are italicized, putting much of the text in italics. There are more exclamation points than any other form of punctuation. Everyone is always yelling at everyone else, usually closing with the term "idiot!" Perhaps this is where Napoleon Dynamite picked up this term, although in the Thor Conspiracy the continuous use of "idiot!" is supposed to provide emphasis in tense situations, not comic relief.
I stumbled across this abomination at my public library, and am disappointed to find that such a poorly written book would make it into the catalogue. I wonder if this book was self published.
Government intrigue, environmental issues, and conspiracy can all make for entertaining topics. If this type of book suits you, Clive Cussler, Robert Ludlum, or Michael Chrichton all have decent offerings. I was hoping to get this kind of easy to read, entertaining book when I picked up The Thor Conspiracy. To my dismay I picked up this thinly veiled propaganda piece trotting out the author's childish, simplified, black and white, cowboys and indians, worldview.
Make no mistake: it was not the propaganda that bothered me. I have read propoganda that has entertained me. I cannot overemphasize how wretched this book is, from cover to cover. On this site you can read the first few pages. If you are considering this purchase, please read these pages first. I regret that I will never regain the time I wasted on this book. I would most likely have been better off staring blankly at the seat in front of me.
Worst Book I've read in 5 Years Jul 2, 2004
This book is crammed so full of errors and simple mistakes I could barely finish reading it, in fact I am surprised I did. You can tell that the author is a far right-wing wacko just by how he structures the whole plot.
A thriller that makes you think May 11, 2001
The book is a view into the year of 2010 with a twist from a sixties missle test. Although the coincidenses are somwhat far fetched the plot ties them together well. I gaurantee this is one that will have you thinking for days with its close relationship to history and real people. I promise you won't put it down till it's done then you'll want to read it again.
