Mixing sharp social commentary, sweet contemporary romance and a bitter morality tale, Peter Martins story introduces Dale MaCallan, a rugged soldier back from the Middle East who is suffering from PTSD and Victoria Cameron, the eye-catching billionaires daughter who is madly in love with him. During a lavish party at the billionaires castle, Dale seeks revenge on the host after learning that, long ago, the diabolical man killed his uncle for heroin profit in the Vietnam War. Victoria, a stunning blond super model around the world, is unaware that her billionaire father has a very dark history. Despite an evening filled with beautiful women, powerful men and electric entertainment, when the clock strikes midnight, an incident occurs that rocks more than just the billionaires enormous estate. Richly entertaining, this sweeping novel keenly illuminates the dawn of 21st Century America as artfully as The Great Gatsby marked the twenties and The Bonfire of the Vanities revealed the eighties.
