War hero and infamous ladies man General MacKenzie Hawkins is a living legend. His life story has even been sold to Hollywood. But now he stands accused of defacing a historic monument in Chinas Forbidden City. Under house arrest in Peking with a case against him pending in Washington, this looks like the end of Macs illustrious career. But he has a plan of his own: kidnap the Pope. Whats the ransom? Just one American dollar - for every Catholic in the world. Add to the mix a slew of shady "investors," Macs four persuasive, well-endowed ex-wives, and a young lawyer and fellow soldier who wants nothing more than to return to private life, and readers have in their hands one relentlessly irreverent page-turner.
