    Robert Thompson’s new novel “Death & Taxes” is a fast-paced work of fiction that explores what might happen if a group of citizens stands up to oppose government officials misusing their authority for their own gain.

With a premise seemingly ripped from today’s headlines, Robert Thompson’s new novel “Death & Taxes” is a fast-paced work of fiction that explores what might happen if a group of citizens stands up to oppose government officials misusing their authority for their own gain.

“What this story is about is the unfettered power that the IRS and other government agencies have over your wallet and your freedom,” Thompson said.

“Death & Taxes” is the retired financial industry executive’s first novel, and he said the title is borrowed from Ben Franklin. “It’s designed to ease into the harsh but vital subject of corrupt taxation in an unusual way,” he said.

An expression of opposition to a corrosive tax system, the story deals with derivative issues of preserving liberty and prosperity.

Thomp-son grew up and went to school in Long Beach and Los Angeles, Calif. He attended the University of Southern California, and received a Bachelor of Science degree and a Master of Business Administration. Following more than 30 years of work, including as a market analyst and an executive in the financial industry, Thompson retired to Sandpoint with his wife, Ursula.

The book retails for $12.95 and is available in Sandpoint at Vanderford’s Books, 201 Cedar St.; the Corner Bookstore, 405 N. Fourth Ave.; and in Bonners Ferry at Bonners Books, 7195 Main St.
