About the author:
Frank Amoroso is an attorney who was born in New York City. Before embarking on a writing career, Mr. Amoroso practiced law for many years and was a senior partner in a large international law firm. "Law is a wonderful training ground for writing," says Amoroso, "It's all about communication and persuasion with the added requirement of precision." From his days on Law Review, to clerking for a Judge on New York's highest court, to working as chief of staff for a NYS Senator, to working as a prosecutor and teaching a course in White Collar Crime, to handling litigation for Fortune 500 companies, his career revolved around words, written and spoken.
Dread the Fed
In the early 20th century there was an epic battle for control over the money of the United States. This struggle was, for the most part, clandestine and cleverly disguised so that the people would not know that their sovereign power over the monetary system was being stolen.
One man, C. A. Lindbergh, Sr., recognized the true nature of the Federal Reserve Bank and sacrificed everything a man holds dear, to oppose the brazen effort by the Money Trust.
Although the name Charles Lindbergh evokes images of the intrepid aviator who revolutionized flight, this book is about his father, Charles Lindbergh, Sr., a five-term Congressman from Minnesota. Dread the Fed chronicles his quest to save the dollar from the diabolical clutches of the Money Trust. Much like Don Quixote, Lindbergh fights the unbeatable foe with an indomitable spirit and similar results.
As the story unfolds, Lindbergh, the small town lawyer from rural Minnesota, confronts powerful men like J. Pierpont Morgan, President Theodore Roosevelt, Otto Hermann Kahn, Senator Nelson Aldrich, Paul Warburg, and a mysterious stranger nicknamed Nitro. Despite a tumultuous marriage and an enigmatic relationship with a New York socialite, Lindbergh battles treachery, deceit, and secret meetings with fearless courage. The excitement mounts as the plot races from Minnesota to Washington, D.C., to New York City to Jekyll Island, Georgia and Baden Baden, Germany.
Given a century of obfuscation and the dry nature of monetary policy, the best way to communicate the story of the birth of the Federal Reserve Bank is to novelize the actual events. C. A. Lindbergh was a real person who actually battled the Money Trust with courage and dire consequences. Dread the Fed attempts to lift the shroud using the drama of story-telling and the tools of historical fiction. The basic facts related in Dread the Fed are historically accurate. Some relationships, conversations and timing have been created or connected to enhance the impact of the story. None of these negate the essence of the drama surrounding the origins of the Federal Reserve Bank. The goal of any imagination, speculation, or conjecture in this novel is to entertain, titillate, and provoke the reader.
