The reader and the characters are led first, to admire him, and then slowly grow to fear him. This international thriller takes the readers from the streets of Florence, Italy to the highest seats of power in Washington D.C.

Shocking plans are unleashed in the establishment of a one-world government under the guise of global warming. But Simon has a plot of his own; to take down the U.S. power grid. This rollercoaster of a cliffhanger dials up the intrigue, leaving questions hanging. Redemption, the final book in this explosive series holds the answers.
