Overview

The time is the mid-1960s. Subtle societal changes are underway. In the background is the Nixon-Kennedy presidential race. At the world famous Homestead Resort and Hotel in Hot Springs, Virginia, a prominent, politically connected businessman, whose residence is the hotel, is abducted and subsequently killed, law enforcement authorities suspect. The abduction coverup is blown when the hotel's house detective is brutally murdered. The abduction and the murder are first reported by the editor of a newspaper in a small town near Hot Springs. The killings become worldwide news. Working with the hotel's attractive, sometimes reluctant, public relations woman, the newspaper editor does the leg work that eventually leads to the murderer. In the process, he also uncovers and is first to report on the hotel's discriminatory anti-Semitic policies, the construction of a secret, underground bunker being built at the resort for government executives in case of an atomic bomb attack on the nation's capital, and the existence of a ring of Nazis operating out of Washington, D.C. and in the Virginia mountains.
