In the fifth Frank Nagler Mystery, DRAGONY RISING, the conspirators launched the plan to topple Ironton’s elected government years before the story opens.
Any similarity to modern real-life conspiracies is deliberate.
Here’s how the plan begins:
(Dragony leader Carlton) Dixon held up one hand to silence the murmured approval.
“Society and its creation, government, at times rot. Such is that time. But society is a pile of rocks strapped together with the dreams of believers like you all. It is time to seek out the dreams that have putrefied. Pull out the loose rock, weaken its hold on the faulty structure. Pull one and it leans, makes a hole; pull another and it shivers, another, and it falls. Find your rock, that weak crumbling rock, brothers and sisters, and pull.”
