Synopsis: What if there was a cover-up so big that even the President was on a need-to-know basis? And what if some average guy stumbled upon the truth -- a secret so powerful it could literally change the course of humanity? You think that guy would stand a chance of survival? From Nick Wauters and Steve Stark comes a suspense-filled journey where the answers only lead to bigger questions.
