Synopsis: An admiral is on trial for having defied the President while carrying out the orders of a rebellious Congress.
A President is on trial for having failed to act when a crisis threatened his country.
In a nation's darkest hour, a terrorist strikes.
With a feel for politics, a gift for legal drama, and a rush of military action, this rousing novel sweeps from the Oval Office to a Navy SEAL assault on an Indonesian island, from the court-martial of an admiral to the impeachment hearings of a president.
In this sequel to James W. Huston's Balance of Power, the President has ordered the arrest and trial of battle-group commander Admiral Ray Billings, who led a Congress-authorized attack on terrorists in defiance of a presidential order. The angry Speaker of the House retaliates by initiating impeachment proceedings against the President. Jim Dillon, the Speaker's top aide, finds himself defending the admiral in the court-martial and is named number-two prosecutor for the upcoming impeachment trial. Meanwhile, when a terrorist invades a U.S.-owned gold mine on an Indonesian island and takes hostages, demanding the return his 28 compatriots, captured in a daring raid by Admiral Ray Billings, Dillon uncovers another forgotten power in the Constitution: the Rules of Capture, authorizing a SEAL-led attack. Nothing will prevent a great nation from doing what is right, no matter what the price, not when the honor and the future of America is at stake.
