As former secretary of the Department of Health and Human Services, Dr. Peter Kelly knows that the new president-elect, Joseph Thorn, will continue the previous administration's disastrous healthcare reform. He's seen firsthand the terrible price the reform has cost families. His own son has become a victim of the new "affordable and practical" healthcare system. But even worse, Kelly realizes that it is his own original proposal that landed America in this tragic mess.

Ten years ago, Kelly only wanted to reduce suffering and move much-needed funds to where they would do the most good for patients instead of increasing the bottom lines of politicians and conglomerate healthcare industries. Instead, he helped create a dark monster that threatened to devour American health standards, and with the crooked administration adding to the plan, it only made things worse. Now, with the current administration on the verge of continuing the dramatic decline of American healthcare with a president whose power and ego climaxes even the most adulated world leaders, Kelly knows there are no options left. If the people of the great United States of America are to ever have quality healthcare again, Kelly must make a move that will change the course of history-if he has the guts to pull the trigger...
