In the seventh Colton Banyon mystery, Banyon starts a new position at a prestigious law firm. The job has been arranged by the President of the United States. He quickly discovers that this is no ordinary law firm. All the workers have special talents and are often called upon by the government to help stop situations that the government can’t solve themselves. Banyon finds that many of the female employees are very different and alluring. He is on the job for only a few hours when a major crisis begins to take shape. War between Mexico and The United States is brewing and he needs to find a way to defuse it. Someone is creating disasters on both sides of the Rio Grande and they must be stopped.
Loni and the Patel sisters are not around to help. They have left the country for an adventure of their own where they have the opportunity to find a valuable treasure. Only Eric Grey and Banyon are left to solve and stop the crisis. They employ several of the law firm’s contract employees and set about finding answers. In between they have to deal with murders, kidnappings, bombings and a Mexican hit squad out to kill them.
They soon discover that the Effort, the longtime American Nazi organization, is involved and Banyon hatches a complicated plan to take down the leaders. He then lures the hit squad to Las Vegas for a final showdown in one of American’s national parks. But things never go as planned.
