Short Summary

Retired Navy SEAL Hayder Randall would do anything to defend his country. But when his ex-girlfriend and current First Daughter Elizabeth watches her Presidential parents fall to a brutal assassination, he’s shocked when she stages a coup and takes over the United States.

As chaos and martial law reign, Randall watches in horror as Elizabeth repeals the First Amendment and begins a campaign of public executions. With the help of a retired Green Beret, a rogue FBI agent, and a group of unlikely allies, they restore order to the republic.
