An unlikely hero emerges.

The fifth book in this series of reimagined Shakespeare plays is set in a near-future America that is quickly descending into chaos.

With the global pandemic started by Richard in Book Four decimating most of the population and large swaths of the country becoming completely lawless, Secret Service agent Henry Bolingbroke has a quality few others possess, and even fewer want—loyalty. Unquestioning loyalty to his new president, Jane Ricardo, and deep, profound loyalty to his wife and 12-year-old son, Hal.

But these loyalties will clash when a ruthless former cartel leader begins to consolidate outlaw groups from across the country into a Mad Max-like army that descends on Washington. Henry must choose whether to abandon his post to protect his family or stay true to his increasingly mercurial and vengeful president—a choice that will haunt him for the rest of his life.

Retreating with what’s left of the federal government to the alternate command center located deep in the mountains outside of Colorado Springs, Henry, now the president’s only confidant as her behavior grows increasingly erratic, must rally a broken people to stand up to Luis’s powerful army.

But defeating Luis will force Henry to make a sacrifice those closest to him may never forgive him for.

"Intsense from beginging to end...excited for more to come." - Advanced Reviewer
