Product Description: The riveting edge of your seat sequel to One Day On Mars once again takes us on a blindingly fast pace through events from a futuristic Washington D.C. to the Tau Ceti star system. Just days before the presidential election a CIA operative uncovers a plot to overthrow America that reaches deep into the government. To top it off, the forces planning to revolt have somehow developed a technology that allows them to transport across the gulf between the star systems almost instantaneously.
The CIA operative braves hand-to-hand combat and even torture in order to get a warning of the coming coup to American officials while at the same time the two most powerful battleships in the U.S. Space Navy are dispatched to overtake the enemy teleportation technology. With armored marines, intense space naval battles, fighter plane, and high technology wizardry perhaps the plot to kill the president can be thwarted. But will that be enough to save the land of the free?
