“The exciting story of a military coup against the administration of the United States.  The plot, at first glance as fantastic to the reader as it is to Lieutenant Colonel Martin Casey, develops with a disturbingly logical inevitability into a thriller with real ‘could it happen here…?’ application to our times.
The seven days in this particular May begin with Casey going to the Pentagon for his turn of Sunday duty.  Washington and the whole of the USA is in a sullen mood: apprehensive over a nuclear disarmament treaty with Russia, angered by a prolonged missile strike, worried about unemployment inflation and hostile to President Jordan Lyman and his entourage in the White House.  As Lyman’s stock falls that of the Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, James Scott, is rising.”
