This fast-paced drama cartwheels from Washington's halls of power, to the pitching deck of an aircraft carrier, and the depths of Bermuda's seemingly serene waters.
When the helo with the Vice President aboard crashes at sea Navy Commander Paul Henly is drawn unwittingly into a dangerous game of high stakes political intrigue.
Henly is on the fast track to admiral. An academy graduate and dedicated officer, he wears the coveted gold wings of an aviator. While he has got all the right tickets, including a White House Fellowship, he is ill-prepared for the dangers awaiting him.
Aided by Warrant Officer Foster Robbins and Commander 'Duke' Sampson, a combat-tested Navy SEAL, he uncovers a chilling plot to unseat the President and is nearly killed in the process.
Finally, with the evidence in hand, he must decide if going public is worth risking anarchy. The solution is ultimately provided by a trusted ally, Chief Justice Albert Bryant, in whose private chambers the conspirators hear the verdict that serves justice and preserves the union.
