When the most divisive president in US history is assassinated in December, 2020, journalist Ella Lesperance discovers evidence that someone in the 1% may have sponsored the hit.

Law enforcement and National Guard troops fight rebels across the country. But as progressive leaders are attacked and killed, Ella learns that rebels were not responsible. Behind the open warfare, prominent leaders in the super-rich are engaged in bloody covert battles.
