"A superbly crafted novel by John F. Miglio, Sunshine Assassins is a bone-chilling political morality fable that poses uncomfortable directions and results of America's history of blind cooperation with the corporate powers that be. Using both bleak, sarcastic humor and science fiction Armageddon traditions, Sunshine Assassins is a logical development of political reality especially suited for the "Daily Show" generation, cutting across all age and culture groups."
     ---Midwest Book Review

"I usually don't like modern-day novels, but I loved this book and couldn't put it down. A masterfully convincing story about a fictional Corporate Christian America of the near future that rings so chillingly true for today. Well-written, engrossing, convincing, and wickedly entertaining. I recommend it most enthusiastically."
     ---Michael Parenti, award-winning author of The Culture Struggle and Superpatriotism

"John F. Miglio's Sunshine Assassins is a chilling tale of what could happen in the not-so-distant future if present-day Americans fail to safeguard our democracy."
     -- Justin Frank, MD, author of Bush on the Couch: Inside the Mind of the President

"In Sunshine Assassins, John F. Miglio shows with conviction and heart that all revolution begins in the mind. His novel is a wake-up call for Americans to break free from their own complacency, which has allowed large corporations to dominate their lives and restrict their civil liberties. Moreover, it is a progressive philosophical antidote to the Ayn Randian characters that emerged during the Cold War."
     -- Nomi Prins, author of Other People's Money: The Corporate Mugging of America

"While many contemporary authors are more than willing to play it safe and lick the advancing storm troopers' jackboots, John F. Miglio is not. With Sunshine Assassins he adds to the growing ranks of postmodern American dissident letters and presents a dystopian view of the future that we ignore at are own peril."
     -- Christopher R. Howard, author of Tiboli Taboo

"If there are multiple alternative futures, John F. Miglio has certainly described one that has a higher probability than most. What he presents us with here, in the form of an exciting fictional read, is an opportunity to ask ourselves what really matters, what do we really value, and where the hell are we going anyway?"
     -- Michael C. Ruppert, author of Crossing the Rubicon: The Decline of the
                                                      American Empire at the End of the Age of Oil

It was St. Paul who stated in his first letter to the Corinthians (13:12) that complete truth is obscure to us in this world: "For now we see in a mirror dimly, but then face to face." Reading John F. Miglio's novel brought me face to face with the consequences that can result when the ill-advised behavior of radical liberals and right-wing conservatives ultimately lead to violent confrontation. It may cause you, as it did me, to look in a mirror and reflect on your sins of commission and omission in the manner you honor people.
     -- Reverend Douglas R. Roper, author of The Map of Madaba
