In Washington, D.C., the investigation of an international entrepreneur and Mormon elder has sparked a heated conflict between the White House and a powerful senator. In Denmark, a missing Magellan Billet agent is at the mercy of a zealot driven by divine visions. And Cotton Malone has suddenly gone from selling books to dodging bullets, plunged into a secret war set in motion more than two hundred years ago by America's founding fathers. From the streets of Copenhagen to the catacombs of Salzburg to the rugged mountains of Utah, a dangerous conspiracy is gathering power. And Cotton Malone must risk life, liberty, and his greatest love to uncover the stunning truth that could tear the United States apart.
