A second American civil war erupts as the political divisions between the Right and the Left become more destructive. As the red states and the blue states fight a battle of high-tech weapons, the American people just want to return to peace. In the aftermath of the assassination of the President, one man rises to power, Averell Torrent. He convinces the American people that he wants not one party nomination but both parties to nominate him. It leaves many at the Pentagon to wonder what his true intentions are. Is it to create an empire as he often lectured about when he was a professor of history at Princeton? Questions arise as to how Torrent is connected to the assassination of the President and the powers behind the privately funded Progressive Restoration Militia. Only in time will the true intentions of the President be revealed.
