Ed Kline’s son disappeared one year ago. Then a rogue militia group assassinates two senators and Ed isn’t sure if his son is involved. But when a mysterious text is sent, Ed Kline is determined to find his son, even if that means jeopardizing his life.

Could the L mean his adult son Lewis? Lewis wrote to him before disappearing a year ago that you're a hero, but the country you fought for doesn’t exist. Then a "bad thg" happens. A group calling itself the PUMAs—Patriots United Militia of America—assassinates two Washington State senators the same day it perpetrates a deadly armored truck robbery. Unnerved, Ed jeopardizes his new relationship, his career, and his sanity while trying to rescue a son who might be one of the killers, trying to escape them, or both.
