This third book of the The Protector Trilogy, takes place twenty-five years later when Sam Stanton is tasked with the removal of the President of the USA from office because of his dangerous ‘US One and Only’ policy, which threatens to lead to a new cold war, or worse. Sam and Leona’s son, which they named Sam-Junior, but is usually referred to as Junior, now takes the lead in what unfolds. He has been educated and trained to follow in Sam’s footsteps. His first task is to free Jocelyn, the President’s daughter, who has been confined to the White House without means of communicating with the outside world after she had found out about her father’s devious method to gain the support of Congress for his evil plans. Junior and Jocelyn fall in love during their daring escape from the White House.
They then inform the Washington Post of what the President is responsible for, but the investigative reporter is murdered immediately afterwards. Their continued involvement with the Washington Post finally leads to the impeachment of the President and the Vice President by the House of Representatives but the following trial in the Senate, intended to remove him from office, does not lead to the required two-thirds majority. Sam and Junior then abduct the President, the Vice President and their spouses from their bedrooms during the night and transfer them to Prime-Even where they are subjected to an intensive correctional program, designed to let them see the error of their ways. Jocelyn has meanwhile left Junior after having seen him nearly kill two of their assailants, believing that he is a vigilante.
When she is captured by the White House Chief of Staff for possibly having played a role in the abduction of her father, Junior comes to her rescue, but he is taken prisoner instead and confined to a high security penitentiary in Florida and told that he would never stand trial or be released for having carried out acts of terror similar to those of the thirty-two terrorist inmates that he is imprisoned with. He escapes, and on returning home is set on finding out if Jocelyn might still love him…
