In this novel, Communist China rules the world by 2040. America, a colony, gets all of its direction from Beijing along with 200 other countries. The wealthy classes are robbed on behalf of the masses which barely survive on broken promises. Private enterprise is dead as everyone is a slave to the Chairman of the Chinese Communist Party (CCP). Communism is the new religion. For Americans, the lifestyle becomes increasingly intolerable. A deeper recession looms on the horizon.
In 2046, Rory Flynn, the son of a previous American President, Matt Flynn, who defeated the Socialists earlier in the century, had had enough. The Communists had appropriated the billionaire’s wealth accrued over three decades of transportation systems innovations due to a novel anti-gravity device called the Red Box invented by Matt and his brother Murray. Rory and his wife, Paula, are allowed to maintain a wealthy lifestyle because they are the only people on Earth who carry the Red Box formula in their heads.
Chinese officials plan a huge global celebration for 2049 to honor the founding of the People’s Liberation Army (PLA), the embryo of the Communist world. The Flynns devise a plan to harness devices with Red Boxes, robots, drones and Chinese sympathizers throughout Asia to undertake a bloodless coup. In 2046-2047, the Chinese experience a viral plague from Mongolia. The Flynn’s seize the moment to create Aquaclipper vaccine factory ships which also hold secret weapons for the coup. A year before the planned celebration, the coup successfully captures the CCP leadership without spilling a drop of blood. A modern, democratic China, New China, is born. In the end, the Flynns and their key leaders are awarded for Mission Embryo which eliminates the slavery of Communism on Earth.
