It opens almost as a comedy: a childish blackmail stunt targeting a US Congressman. This amateurish antic twists and turns and unexpectedly sends the reader down a rabbit hole populated by Nazi biker gangs, faded movie stars, sexual deviance, and compromised Gov’t agencies. Tying it all together is a shadowy European corporate entity exporting neo-Nazi thugs to Los Angeles to retrieve a puzzling historical icon of immense importance to German fascist parties.
Reluctantly, Wade Daniels plunges Praetorian into this sorted mix as a personal favor to a friend. Wade has little time to feel regret before he is sucked into a vortex of competing sociopaths, a criminal congressman, and a kidnapped client. Each personality involved has a different understanding of the explosive nature of the mysterious icon that launched the struggle, and each is determined to possess the artifact no matter the cost. It is political intrigue on steroids, with a twisted ending that was always hidden in plain sight.
