Acting United States President Rose Akron is in trouble. She has lost her support in Congress, and now, the Joint Chiefs are questioning her backing of the military and her ability to command. Joint Chiefs Chairman General Clint Courier feels he should take charge now before it is too late for the country he loves—and nothing will stop him. Meanwhile, sexy former House Speaker Lucy Jennings sees a way to dump Akron and get the presidency for herself. To do so will take a new constitutional amendment and help from her latest lover, Chief Justice of the Supreme Court. Far away from the chaos of Washington, the power of ISIS in the Middle East has grown immensely. They have found a charismatic leader in Abu Bakr. In addition to his success on the battlefield, Bakr has employed the world’s leading scientists to develop top-secret new weapons at his underground headquarters in the desert of Syria. Seeing America’s weakness, he will settle for nothing less than total Islamic victory. Can Akron keep her government intact, or will terrorists rain fire on a proud country battling itself?
