A peaceful little town on the California coast. It is three minutes to seven on a quiet Sunday morning. The voices of the choir can be heard coming from the church. And then, in an instant, Santa Veronica is no more, leveled by a nuclear suitcase bomb. Over a thousand souls either dead or maimed for life because of the twisted hatred of a Muslim terrorist. But was it the work of one man, or was the devastation of Santa Veronica something far more evil, an attack from within by those charged with defending us? Two men know the secret. Brian Everett, at one time the most highly respected television newsman in America and Ken Bannister, his lifelong friend, a renowned Washington law professor with ties to the most powerful men in the country. The despotic hand of socialism has the nation in its grip and within days, the America that has survived two hundred and forty years will be no more. As time runs out two patriots must find a way against all odds to thwart a final blow to liberty that looms only days away.
