Two years ago, law professor, Max Becker wrote a book about secession. Now, he is being hunted down by FEMA agents. Wounded in the arm, he jumps into the Consumnes river and is swept to the sanctuary of a cave hidden in the Sierras. But someone else is there- an agent who has faked his death. Now the real battle begins as ideologies clash. Only one will survive-or neither as the feds pursue both.
