Americans work more and get less than ever before.
What happened to the 'Great American Dream' they were promised?
Howard Hughes knew, and it cost him his freedom.
Jason Hammond is about to find out, too - and it might cost him his life.

LAS VEGAS, NOVEMBER 1970 - In a darkened suite on the top floor of the Desert Inn, billionaire Howard Hughes gives his last will and testament to twenty-year-old Chase Wheeler. Chase is a member of the kitchen staff who, through his simple good nature, has gained Hughes's trust. Hughes tells him to keep the will hidden, because it contains information that will anger many powerful people - including a group working in the shadows to bring America to ruin. Just over a week later, Hughes's minders abruptly move him out of Las Vegas in the middle of the night, and Chase Wheeler vanishes without a trace. In the years that follow, Chase's widowed mother will gradually lose her desire to live as the chances of finding her beloved son dwindle to nothing.

PRESENT DAY - Demolition expert Randy Miller discovers forty-eight pages of Hughes's rough notes just hours before the Desert Inn is imploded. Still in financial straits due to the Great Recession, Randy and his wife, Jeanine, decide to put a few of the pages on eBay. Days later, the Miller family is attacked by a gunman who wants them all. The Millers take their children into hiding and contact the only person they feel they can trust - Jason Hammond, the master sleuth who recently made international headlines when he closed the case on the Kennedy assassination.

Jason reads through the cryptic notes and realizes they contain a great deal of information about Hughes's legendary lost will. If discovered now, it would endow certain people with great fortune while stripping it from others - more than adequate motivation for someone to bring a professional killer into the equation. But the situation is far from that simple.

Jason is determined to find the will before anyone else, in order to provide closure for the Miller family as well as Chase Wheeler's sole surviving relative, his embittered sister Denise. But Jason gets more than he bargained for when his investigation leads him to the chilling truth behind America's decline - and the terrifying reality that the people responsible for it aren't done yet....
