Twelve-year old Harry Bolt is almost killed by an unknown assailant. After being assaulted again as a teenager, the identity of his attacker is revealed and Harry becomes aware that he is being haunted by the legacy of his late father, a federal district court judge who had allowed his ideology to take charge of his life, becoming part of an ultra, right wing conspiracy committed to bring about radical changes in the judicial and legislative processes. Harry engages his nemesis, a revenge driven psychopath who graduates to bumbling hired assassin, in a cat and mouse struggle against a background of violence, romance, and international intrigue. Beset by tragedy and betrayal, Harry seeks justice and stumbles into a frantic and bizarre climax of the tale. A loveable, flamboyant, and dangerous cast of support characters cavorts and skulks through the narrative.
