The third Sam Hook novel describes the state of the nation as he tries to get access to play on the professional golf tour. The country is in a panic. Leadership is non-existent leaving open an opportunity for the secret “Organization” to grow their influence. They prod the Muslims in the Detroit Michigan area to carve out a new country, providing a false leader to assist in the American structure. Because of the lenient view on terrorism, a group of Muslims backed by the secret “Organization” stake their claim to Detroit as a new country.
A phone call from Erin Bronte prompts Sam Hook to stay in Columbus with Crystol Lombardo instead of pursuing his goal of becoming a touring professional golfer. Sam gets involved in this, tearing himself away from his goal of playing golf to help a woman he barely knows.

The decision to rescue her creates the conflict to validate the new country.
