Joe DeMarco is back and the corridors of power have never felt so deadly . . .
First a bomb attack is averted. Then a young American Muslim is shot down in a Cessna plane whilst trying to drive it into the White House. What follows is chaos as a ruthless senator tries to pass a xenophobic law that will see non-citizen Muslims deported and extensive background checks on all Muslims carried out immediately. Speaker of the house John Mahoney knows all too well what trouble a law like that could stir up, and what's worse he knows the kid who tried to crash the plane. Joe DeMarco is charged with investigating the attacks but there's a twist to the attempted mass destruction, and suddenly at every turn DeMarco faces a new and terrifying danger . . .
