Overview

Ira Ellingsworth, a pawn in the neo-conservative movement under the tutelage of his boss, Fred Rollins, a born-again evangelical Christian and archconservative, realizes that this is not the destiny he wanted for himself. As an assistant district attorney, he comes face-to-face with the unholy trinity of the
Patriot Act, the Military Commissions Act of 2006, and the
Violent Radicalization and Homegrown Terrorism Act of 2007.
To make matters worse, he is proselytized to become a member of the Christian Zionist movement, which he eventually fi nds to be hypocritical. He and his comrade-in-arms, Carol Langley,
do battle against these forces, but they realize that they are outmatched. Seeking a new direction, Ira and Carol get hired by Roberto Sanchez, a lawyer for the American Civil Liberties
Union (ACLU), and they blossom as civil rights lawyers. Ira now fi ghts against everything that Fred Rollins stands for,
and he starts to bring justice back from near annihilation.
The National Intelligence Agency and their ever-expanding surveillance powers receive their fi rst reality check compliments of the ACLU, and Ira becomes an unlikely hero. He then undergoes a spiritual transformation as he breaks free from the power-obsessed neo-conservative world and sees America is fi nally moving in a new direction
