The First Lady of the Confederacy is assassinated as she dedicates a new warship. A tragedy, but not unexpected between enemies.
Except the Confederate vessel is an aircraft carrier. The year is 2013.
And the assassin is a U.S. terrorist.
Now Chase Randolph, head of the Confederate Bureau of Investigation, must solve the crime before war fever engulfs the two Americas in a Second Civil War.
