She was the last link in America’s chain of command.
Now she’s the world’s last hope.

Brad Marshall was a brilliant Air Force general and popular war hero. Too popular for his own good. The president has reassigned his potential rival to the shadows: command of a doomsday plane that officially doesn’t exist, flying endless circles over nuclear missiles in the heartland that nobody at the Pentagon believes will ever be launched.

Then a catastrophic attack on Washington destroys the Pentagon and kills the President and the next fifteen Cabinet members in the line of succession. Now Marshall, who wrote the military’s Doomsday playbook, holds the keys to America’s nuclear arsenal. And he’s ready to unleash it to avenge his country.

Only one person stands in his way: Deborah Sachs, the Secretary of Education. On the day she was to be fired, she is now the accidental “designated survivor” and acting President. She has ultimate nuclear authorization—and a mind of her own.
