Duration: 11 hours 38 minutes
After six long years of political genocide carried out against the American people by the administration of President Benjamin Franklin Luder, the nation is stunned when Luder announces he is issuing an executive order to suspend the next presidential election for “the good of the country,” giving him an unconstitutional third term as president. Luder has slowly and systematically robbed the citizens of their liberties and freedoms, and in the process he has nearly destroyed the country. However, his environmental policy of “green communism” has done the most damage, resulting in a crippling nationwide energy slowdown.
Like any clever Svengali, Luder does not suffer from a lack of bold delusions. Idaho’s unspoiled Sawtooth Mountain Range is rich in thorium, a safer and cleaner alternative to the uranium currently used in the few nuclear power plants that still exist. It is said that one thorium mine, located near the small mining town of Ransom, Idaho, contains enough energy to power every city in the United States for the next five hundred years. But the mine is on private property surrounded by federal lands.
Sent to Ransom to pose as an ecojournalist, Assistant US Attorney Haley Hendricks is to devise a way for the government to seize the mine, while Special Agent Sean Brennan—Haley’s ex-fiancé—is to find a way to get Luder to the mine for a photo op and then safely back to the White House.
The moment Haley lays eyes on Jace Fuller, the man she has been directed to hire to guide the presidential party to the mine, he takes her breath away. But she soon learns that Jace, a former sheriff’s deputy, lives only for his eleven-year-old son, who is being raised by his grandparents.
As Jace leads the most powerful man in the world deep into the rugged Sawtooth Wilderness, he is unaware that a trap has been laid. Soon he will have to choose between love for his country and the love he has for his son, between who will live and who will die.
“Lewis displays a masterful hand at work in this layered, extremely well-crafted tale. This book is authentic crime fiction at its best.”--Robert W. Walker, author of Dead On, on Little Blue Whales
