Experience the Nightmare of a Perfect World

Welcome to America: where every school child is completely healthy; where an all-embracing church speaks only of unconditional love and acceptance; where diseases once thought beyond reach have been conquered; and where those who have lost loved ones receive soothing messages of hope.

Yet beneath the surface of this seeming utopia lies a horrifying darkness.

In a world long since reshaped in the wake of 9/11, Matthew Bridger, president of the United States, Bryson Lawe, a Secret Service agent, and Karen Foley, a Christian activist must face the atrocity the American dream has become. Life has lost its value, deception is epidemic, and in a nation of more than three million square miles, there is no room for God.

As a Russian oil embargo jeopardizes American petroleum reserves, a massive terrorist strike forces the United States to withdraw its support of Israel. Finally given their long-awaited opening, enemies of the Jewish state attack, igniting a war that threatens to sweep the globe. Amid the escalating chaos, Bridger, Lawe and Foley race to uncover the truths that will secure their survival–and that of America itself.
