Sons of Adam is a political thriller whose intricately woven plot spans the entire 20th century and part of the 21st. Just how far and to what degree did the Germans, during WWI and WWII, infiltrate American society? How close to the brink of extinction did we come, and are we still hovering over that brink? Who can stop the nefarious plot, still afoot, that relies upon a secret structure implanted decades ago somewhere in the American Midwest? The cast of characters includes historical figures such as Kaiser Wilhelm, Paul von Hindenburg, Woodrow Wilson, Winston Churchill, Adolph Hitler, Otto von Bulow, and FDR as well as FBI and CIA agents from May's first novel, Article XII, and a myriad of Middle Eastern terrorists, Western spies, and vying groups of political operatives. May skillfully navigates back and forth through time as the hardboiled counterterrorism expert Michael J. Ianelli attempts to untangle a potentially devastating web of abject evil.
