Brian Atwood life is changing drastically with the birth of his third child and his work as a field agent for the FBI. When the child is born with Down’s syndrome, the current government procedure is to remove the child to a facility against the parent’s wishes, then Atwood and his family move to DC to work for the president. Immediately, Atwood realizes that he probably will not last long with this administration. After only a few months, the US begins to fall apart and the current president takes full control.
The first person point of view helps to keep this story from being a smooth read. When major things happen the main character shows little emotion, giving the book a stale feeling. The storyline is excellent, but Ball could have built more on the theme to create a better story.
