'She was a girl, really, with short red hair and a waif-like slimness. But despite the flowered dress she wore, her belly had begun to show. Immobile, the girl gazed at the clinic as though it were a thousand miles away.' The young woman is Mary Ann Tierney. She is fifteen years old. Within days her name will be known to millions across America, her court case a television must-watch for everyone from the President downwards. As Mary Ann takes on her own parents and the constitutional law of the United States in a desperate bid to protect her future right to bear children, the ramifications of 'the Tierney case' bring a threat to the new President, Kerry Kilcannon, to his nominee for Chief Justice, Caroline Masters, and to his main rival for the Presidency, Senator Chad Palmer. All have dangerous secrets in their past, secrets that would not only threaten careers, but bring death and tragedy to innocent lives.

#1 New York Times bestselling author of American Assassin—now a major motion picture Vince Flynn’s thrilling bestseller sends counterterrorist agent Mitch Rapp on a collision course with America’s most feared enemy. No longer willing to wait for the international community to stop its neighboring enemy, Israel brings down Iran’s billion-dollar nuclear program in an ingeniously conceived operation. The attack leaves a radioactive tomb and environmental disaster in its wake, and has Iranian president Amatullah calling for blood—American blood. Seeing opportunity where others fear reprisals, Mitch Rapp devises a brilliant plan to humiliate Iran’s government and push the nation to the brink of revolution. But when a back-channel meeting between CIA director Irene Kennedy and her Iranian counterpart goes disastrously wrong, Rapp is locked in a showdown with a Hezbollah mastermind in league with Amatullah—and he is given twenty-four hours to do whatever it takes to stop unthinkable catastrophe.

Author Bill Terrel, a conservative Republican, became alarmed about the direction the United States was headed about fifteen years ago; at that time, he began putting his thoughts down on paper before wising up and buying a laptop. He also began to make phone calls, write letters, and seek to connect with politicians who could help the country change its course. But today the nation remains at risk, and it's up to concerned citizens to respond to that risk. Terrel considers issues that are important to all Americans, including how you can play an active role in holding leaders accountable; reverse the bad policies of the Obama administration; evaluate information delivered by the media; and rediscover the values that make America a great country. Part autobiography and part political opinion essay, this candid commentary explores the nation's history and the goals of the founding fathers, considering where and how we went off track. Be inspired by an American who has refused to give up, and help the United States rediscover the principles on which it was founded.
