Synopses & Reviews
There is a new order to the world. The first female President of the United States sits in the White House. Monster corporations wield the real global power And all the old rules have been changed.
A military functionary toiling in bureaucratic tedium, Lt. Colonel Mike Stuart is resigned to serving his country in his own quiet way. But when he dutifully reports an unusual pattern of oil tanker movements to his superiors, his ordinary life starts spinning dangerously out of control. Suddenly powerful forces are closing in on one inconspicuous man, threatening to brutally change the political face of a hemisphere, bring a government down in flames and chaos...and take the life of America's President. Called upon to defend his nation in ways he never imagined, Mike Stuart's sole chance for success -- and survival -- is to become something he has never been: a warrior.
