Wynn Bryant is an ordinary man given an extraordinary opportunity. He’s been tapped by his brother-in-law, the new governor of Florida, to replace fallen Congressman Graham Hutchings. Bryant has one single duty: help overthrow Hutching’s pet legislation. It’s an amendment from the principled congressman that would bring control to the financial future of Third World countries. But Bryant soon discovers the greater-and more devastating- end to crushing the amendment. It’ll make the rich far richer. It’ll make the powerful more dangerous. And it’ll put Bryant in harm’s way of an international conspiracy that threatens more than anyone imagined.
