During the President's State of the Union Address, four stealth cruise missiles destroy the Capitol Building. Flamboyant Secretary of State Sarah Lander, in London to finalize a favorable trade deal, is nearly assassinated in a coordinated attack, which the English press widely-and inaccurately-reports as having 'succeeded.' Another cabinet secretary, absent from the State of the Union Address to accommodate the Law of Presidential Succession, suffers a suspicious, fatal heart attack.
Investment banker and part-time undercover FBI and CIA operative Tom West, who is in London on business, stumbles on and thwarts a second attempt on Lander's life. There begins an odyssey that sees West and Lander, who knew each other years earlier in college, battle multiple attempts to usher them into the next world.
At home, the United States plunges into a Constitutional crisis. The Governors convene and appoint the reluctant Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, General Robert Marlow, to be Acting President until the country can hold a Special Election.
The rush of events puts people and forces on a collision course whose resolution is the shocking climax of this intense tale.
