Humorous, sexy, intelligent and fast-paced, this novel of international espionage begins with a bizarre terrorist attack -- leading many to believe it to be of extraterrestrial origin. But the attack turns out to have been a feint meant to discredit a secret society that has been attempting to steer historical events for over a century. Jack Driscoll, a member of the society, and Israeli security specialist Rachel Green must prevent a second attack, this one intended to disrupt a global economic summit in Europe. But the loyalties of Jack's sexy assigned partner, Arden Spindler, are also in question. They must make sure the American President attends the summit, or risk America's becoming a non-player in world events. But if the president is assassinated on foreign soil, it could set off World War III. Along the way we discover some of the real history of America, including why Lee chose Gettysburg, why Franklin Roosevelt had to run for a third and fourth term in office, and why Tom Hanks' becoming a movie star was one of secret society's greatest failures.
