Elements of Mystery takes chemistry to a new level in the ongoing series of mystery novels by author Terri Talley Venters.
What could be worse than Russia taking over the United States? Russia and China. Teaming together, Russia and China invade the United States via the new superhighway which connects Moscow to New York City. The United States surrenders. China occupies the west coast, Russia occupies the east coast, and Americans are squeezed in the middle of the United States.
High school senior, Gabriella Gardner, tours Northwestern University in Chicago where she meets gorgeous cowboy/law student, Colby Connor. When President David Addison surrenders the bankrupt United States to Russia and China, Gabby and Colby are forced to cross the fifty-foot wall of the superhighway into the free Middle America. All Americans have three days to cross the new border, or become slaves forever to Russia and China.
Gabby and Colby face horrific obstacles: food and gas shortages, looters, forced sterilization, abduction, prostitution rings, and deadly violence. But the Americans do not accept the surrender of the United States. A huge rebellion is underway, especially once they learn of the horrific plans of the Russians and Chinese—to exterminate the Americans. Who will win the war for freedom in the U.S.A.?
