Set in an uncomfortably familiar future…

We built a wall to keep the dangers of the world out...but was it actually meant to keep us in?

Your every word is monitored. Your every movement watched.

If you have nothing to hide, you have nothing to fear.

And if you stay within the wall, the Loyalist Party will protect you.

Gideon Frome knows that safety is an illusion. Ten years ago, his perfect life was shattered, and he left Washington DC in disgrace, sentenced to serve on The Wall. He may be back, lauded as a hero, but he knows he’s only traded one prison for another, assigned a position to the infamous Secret Service.

Kate Buchanan uses her illegal predictive engine to monitor the “chatter,” flagging perceived threats to America. When the program suggests that nuclear war is imminent, and people around her start to die, Kate can no longer hide. She needs help, and it comes from the most unlikely place—Gideon Frome, a ghost from her past.

The American people thought they were safe, but it’s becoming shockingly clear that the price of safety is too high. And somehow, together, Kate and Gideon must tear down the walls that keep their country a prisoner.


This is certainly one of the best books that I’ve read this year and the suspense creeps to incredible levels. Just one of those books that I could not put down until my tablet battery ran empty.” --Mick D., Goodreads

“The author was masterful in creating a world that is eerily close to what is and may happen in our future.” --Paula L., Goodreads

“Talk about prophetic fiction! This book was giving me the heebee jeebies at how on point it was and the direction the USA is currently heading. Power, corruption, technological lockdowns, forbidden media - all very current issues. I cannot believe how timely this novel is!” --Nicola B., Goodreads

An eerily prescient, fast paced thrill ride.” --Erika C., NetGalley

“A political thriller that hits close to reality. I had not expected such a riveting story with powerful ideas and emotions.” --anima G., Goodreads

“Good stuff. Enjoyed the plot, the wring style, and the characters. It is quite engaging. This is a talented author. Recommended for scifi fans.” --Paul V., NetGalley

This thrilling book is almost ripped from the headlines.” --April T., Goodreads

First and foremost, a large thank you to N.J. Croft for providing me with a copy of this publication, which allows me to provide you with an unbiased review.

With the political circus in full swing across America, N.J. Croft’s newest book looks to provide readers with some insightful foreshadowing (a ...more

24 years ago, the father of the current president broke away from the Republican Party and started his own loyalist party with strong ties to the conservative church. Martial law is declared, supposedly for a short time like a year or so. A wall is built on the borders with voluntary labour (maybe a ...more

By Kim September 21, 2020

Timely and terrifying…

The Wall is truly one of those books that cannot be put down until the very last sentence. The premise of the story is a basic and simple principle about the corrupting influence of power. The impact really comes when various situations arise that are eerily familiar to recent ...more

By Katheyer August 04, 2020

„The Wall“ by NJ Croft is a very well constructed political dystopia that is all the more appealing because it could become reality at any moment. Featuring a very real possible near future in which the US already built a wall, to allegedly keep threats out of country and prevent danger to its citiz ...more

The Wall by N. J. Croft

Once I started reading, I couldn’t put it down. I read for seven hours straight, and now I have a book migraine (no sleep because I was reading) to show for it. I do not recommend starting this book before going to sleep, but definitely get it and read it.

So this is a full-l ...more

By Deb September 17, 2020

My first thought when I finished the book was WOW. I received this book free for an honest review. There is a very devious, egomaniacal, freedom removing lying President of USA in this book ( and I thought the book was fiction). He has built a Wall along the border of America and Mexico, but it seem ...more

"Trust but verify" - President Ronald Reagan, the 40th President of the United States.
"Only those you trust can betray you." ― Terry Goodkind

The author builds trust with the reader right from the beginning. He builds a story so close to reality it is scary. Could we be led down this path so easily. ...more

By Darren September 16, 2020

this was extremely interesting, and a little terrifying! Terrifying, from the aspect that it is not that far fetched that it can truly happen. The author does not need to make a extreme leap, in order to demonstrate how technology can change our lives. We are closer to this than we may realize. Gide ...more

By Paula July 24, 2020

I liked The Wall by N.J. Croft a lot. The author crafted a great storyline and one that had me saying at some points, "This could really happen."

The author was masterful in creating a world that is eerily close to what is and may happen in our future. I liked all the characters (even the evil ones). ...more

By C. September 15, 2020

This story did not disappoint me.
It lives up to its name as a mystery suspense thriller, containing all three elements. The mystery is there. The suspense did not let up. And oh, you will get a lot of thrills.
The characters all have depth and presence. I found them each to be very interesting as t ...more

By Agna September 23, 2020

The Wall is a frightening dystopian thriller that describes a future United States governed by a totalitarian president and encircled by the Wall, which is supposed to keep out illegal aliens. The makeup of the society itself becomes totally clear only towards the end, a puzzle forming an image piec ...more

By Steve August 18, 2020

Wow, Wow, Wow! What a roller coaster ride N. J. Croft has given us in "The Wall" If you like thrillers, suspense & political action all rolled into one, you'll love this book. The story is also scary as it isn't too far fetched from where we're at today. An insane President who will stop at nothing ...more

By R.K. September 14, 2020

I was actually pleasantly surprised by how much I loved this novel. It is classified as an suspense/thriller and that is not a lie. It really is a read that will have you on the edge of your seat til the end.

The characterization was very well executed and helped me as a reader feel even more invest ...more

By Teresa August 22, 2020

**I received a copy of The Wall from Sideways Books and Net Galley in exchange for a voluntary and honest review. My opinions were not solicited in any way.**

The Wall by N. J. Croft was a rather eye opening book with not only the current government, a pandemic, racial inequality, upcoming Presidenti ...more

~ eARC provided by the author in exchange for an honest review ~

I can't believe I've started reading Croft only this year and this is already my 4th book by them.

Every story has a not too far-fetched possible future at its core. With this one it's a United States that's gone completely totalitarian ...more

By April August 21, 2020

This thrilling book is almost ripped from the headlines. It tells of an alternative future in the US where there’s no democracy, a wall, and a firewall to prevent the US signal from reaching the rest of the world. All of this seems at least somewhat worth the trade off, until Kate discovers her sist ...more

By Susan Lichtfuss August 25, 2020

Non stop excitement!

I could not wait to get to the end but I didn’t want the story to stop! Interesting characters, an evil bad guy you hate and an amazing plot make this the perfect escape. Run to buy or quickly download this book. You will be happy you did! ...more

By Pam August 24, 2020

Kept me on the edge of my chair

I really enjoyed this book. It kept me thinking about freedoms we have and how easy it is to give them up for safety.

I really enjoyed the quotes from Presidents that started every chapter. ...more

By Claudete August 16, 2020

Although a work of fiction "The Wall" deals with very up to date issues such as closed borders among countries, the use of immigrants as cheap or even slave labour, limited access of information and technology, the fear imposed by secretive and highly unfriendly armies (civilian or not). In some par ...more

By Anima August 14, 2020

A political thriller that hits close to reality. The world we live in is open to information, disease, and the decisions of many powerful people. Imagine America surrounded by walls, internet cut off, and a president that reigns under the guise of a popularity contest. That would be The Wall, a worl ...more

By Ray August 17, 2020

What if the ultra Rightest trends we see hinted at today Became Reality. Could we actually be so concerned with our security as to invite the extreme Isolation detailed in this book.

Kudos to N J Croft for his fictional warning of what we could be giving up in personal and political Isolation as play ...more

By Jim August 15, 2020

An excellent political thriller with a great storyline that could tie in current affairs in this country. The characters are well developed and quite realistic. Contains plenty of action, suspense, conflict, and some romance. A well crafted story that was hard to put down. My best book of the year. ...more
