FEATURED BOOK:  BRIGGS LAND

AN AMERICAN FAMILY UNDER SIEGE -  Nearly a hundred square miles of rural wilderness, Briggs Land is the largest and most secretive antigovernment secessionist movement in the United States.  When matriarch Grace Briggs takes control of the operation from her incarcerated husband, she sparks a war within the community — and her immediate family —that threatens to bring the full power of the federal government down on their heads. 
BRIGGS LAND is in development for television at AMC TV.  Brian Wood is writing and executive producing.

I feel like I am reading a leaked script and storyboard for the next big thing. AMC is developing the show for television, and when you read it you can see why.
