With a feel for politics, a gift for legal drama, and a rush of military action, this rousing novel sweeps from the Oval Office to a Navy SEAL assault on an Indonesian island, from the court-martial of an admiral to the impeachment hearings of a president.
The president has ordered the arrest and trial of a battle-group commander who led a congressionally authorized attack on terrorists in defiance of a presidential order. The angry Speaker of the House retaliates by initiating impeachment proceedings. Jim Dillon, the Speaker's top aide, finds himself defending the admiral in the court-martial and is named number-two prosecutor for the upcoming impeachment trial. Meanwhile, in the South Pacific, a fanatic plans to exploit the weaknesses of an American government in upheaval by brutally shedding American blood and taking innocent citizens hostage.But Dillon uncovers another forgotten power in the Constitution: the Rules of Capture, authorizing a SEAL-led attack.
Nothing will prevent a great nation from doing what is right, no matter what the price, not when the honor and the future of America is at stake.

"Compared to Tom Clancy & John Grisham, James W. Huston combines terrorism in the Pacific, gold mines, a court marshal of an outstanding Admiral, an empeachment trial of the President, and a love story to make a unique, finely-tuned, twisty novel well worth the read."
