Three months before the Presidential election, reporter Cassandra Hart receives an urgent phone call from her father, a renowned journalist, who is on the verge of exposing a plot that will influence the election and change the course of history.
When Cassandra is forced to assume the quest, she races against time in a world of deception, intrigue, and murder that reaches from the nation's capitol to Tallahassee, Florida, where she discovers proof that the conspiracy extends to the highest levels of government. In collusion with the mass media, the conspirators are poised to gain ultimate control of the world's resources and governments--in the name of peace.
As those she trusts are killed, discredited, and otherwise taken from her, Cassandra is increasingly isolated but remains determined to expose the betrayal, unaware that her wealthy and influential godfather is equally determined to stop her. Except for the help of Washington, D.C. detective Max Henshaw, she alone stands between democracy and tyranny.
