Could the founding of the united states be based on a fundamental lie?
During a riot at a gruesome dig site deep in the Rocky Mountains, an anthropologist dies horribly, burned to ash in a fiery explosion.

But to protect his niece and uncover the truth, Painter will ignite a war across the nations most powerful intelligence agencies. From the volcanic peaks of Iceland to the blistering deserts of the American Southwest, from the gold vaults of Fort Knox to the bubbling geysers of Yellowstone, he joins forces with Commander Gray Pierce to penetrate the shadowy heart of a dark cabal, one that has been manipulating American history since the founding of the thirteen colonies.
