(From the publisher):
The year is 1998. Constitutional rule in the United States has been abolished. The People's Movement, a radical, collectivist regime, controls most of the country. Standing in their way of total control are the Constitutionalists, a tough resistance group whose ace-in-the-hole is The Almond Project, the code name for three Trident submarines cruising the seas with enough nuclear warheads to maintain a balance of power.
Douglas Richfield, an apathetic official for the People's Movement, stumbles into a web of intrigue when he witnesses the murder of a high-level Constitutionalist. He is forced into a counter-espionage plot to disrupt The Almond Project and sent to infiltrate the Constitutionalist stronghold in Montana, but when he meets Rachel, a Constitutionalist agent, he starts to question his loyalties and finally finds himself in a position where his choice may determine the fate of America.
