A renegade president has used FEMA and government loopholes to rescind the Constitution, dismiss Congress, and all but appoint himself King Lording I. He rules with an iron fist and a callous disregard for human life. Oppose him and die.
But true American nature begins to bleed through and dissent leads to rebellion.
At the core of the resistance is Mace Wallace, lone survivor of the Cochise Stronghold Massacre. The Arizona militia SASS, Southern Arizona Sportsman's Society, is wiped out at that monument for daring to resist Lording when he makes his power grab. Just before the final attack that leaves a radioactive crater, Mace is sent to enlist the help of the Arizona governor.
After two years of evading capture, Mace joins the resistance in Chicago. The resistance, organized by the mysterious Third, has been a debris choked river, pushing to break through. Its members pace their imposed, caged existence, eager for the fight to regain their freedom. Mace comes up with a plan to shake things up and succeeds on an epic scale.
Somehow, Mace is recognized and, with Lording's goons close on their heels, the local resistance leaders, Dell and Layla, whisk Mace through the streets of Chicago.
A scheme on a national level develops and Mace, along with his newfound friends, heads back to Arizona, where it all started for him.
The country as a whole is a powder keg, ready to blow. Mace becomes the spark that lights that fuel and fires up a nation in the process.

About the Author
Two years before he joined the 82nd Airborne, his folks settled in Sierra Vista, Arizona. After Uncle Sam and Mark agreed they weren’t meant for each other, he returned there and, except for one crazy two year sojourn to San Diego, has lived in Arizona since.
A graduate of the University of Arizona, his resume would bear witness to his surname. Mark’s degree (and constant pressure on Bob Gaff at KOLD-TV) got him into broadcast TV. Then he migrated more to his field of study when he worked in interactive TV, a long distance learning environment.
Through it all, he’s had his family. His parents, sister, four kids, (Christopher, Daniel, Kevin and Sarah) from two fantastic ladies keep him invigorated. The kids help him stay informed on new bands he may like. Classic Rock, Southern Rock, Blues, mainstream rock and Celtic are some serious shoes to fill.
A lot of his time is spent in the saddle, riding his Honda Shadow ACE 1100. It’s his preferred mode of transportation. By some definitions, that would make Mark a biker. He’s never been big on long distance riding but if you don’t fill up the tank at least once, why bother?
