The Chinese Conspiracy by John Mariotti (Review #2)

Reviewed by Cy Hilterman

Imagine you are either at work or at home doing some intensive research on the Internet that might be very personal to you or sensitive information for your employer and all at once your computer goes blank? You pick up your cell phone and there is nothing but a hissing sound coming from it. You turn on the radio or television set to see if something was wrong in your area only to find there is no reception there either. You talk to someone in your office or a neighbor if you are home, and discover they are having the same problems. In today’s world of instant communications we have a difficult time comprehending that such things could occur. You think that our government has many sufficient experts constantly working on all of the fore mentioned means of communicating so this must be a quirk of nature. You climb into your vehicle and search the area nearby only to find the same circumstances. You become involved in an accident because all the traffic lights were green on each street. By now you are concerned about what and who is causing such major problems when all of a sudden, as fast as all electronics ceased working they came back to life.

In “The Chinese Conspiracy” John Mariotti brings this situation to life, not only involving the United States but many other locations throughout the world. We are introduced to Jim Martini who had been born and raised in Briggs, West Virginia but had moved from the area for other business interests. He remembered Briggs as a bustling little town that was supported by a large plant, Winton Manufacturing Company, that had since, all of a sudden closed leaving most of the town out of work, turning Briggs into a silent lesser town with work extremely hard to find. When Martini learned that his old haunts had declined so far, he decided to return to see what could have occurred that made that large plant close so abruptly. What he uncovered opened a huge can of worms.

John Mariotti is an accomplished corporate executive and has written hundreds of business articles and numerous books. I think The Chinese Conspiracy is excellent and very thought provoking.

In Briggs, WV something weird has been going on for the last few months. Nothing works in the middle of the night. Cell phones just hum, television and internet don’t work, and then several hours later they start working again. Jim Martini was from Briggs and had heard from several people that something wasn’t right about how Wilton Manufacturing closed. Everything was going just fine and then they just closed the shop down. Jim promised to look into it. He goes back to Briggs and is shocked by the town; the only thing that is prospering is the bars. Martini was known as the Mule in high school, so he was a little bit stubborn. When Martini started digging around Wilton Manufacturing he knew something was wrong but couldn’t figure out what it was. He continued to hear about electronics not working. He gets some friends in high places involved and finds that Wilton Manufacturing is being used as a control center for Chinese terrorists, who are silencing the whole world.
