Franklin has been taken by government agents. The astonishing evidence he's assembled exposing a world-shaking conspiracy seems to be only as believable as the man that assembled it, but the government claims it doesn't know where Franklin is.
Accused of murder and other terrible crimes, Franklin's reputation disintegrates. Millions desert him, leaving only his loyal friends to attempt his rescue. But Everon, Victoria, Samua, Naomi, Hunt, Ken, Paul, Phil, Leslie, Mary, and her boys are powerless to help him. In subtle ways, they too are being held against their will.
Zhou, meanwhile, killer of millions, plots his return. Michael Joy, savior of the masses, expands his worldwide base of power. Praeger, Claus, and their associates continue to weave an unbreakable web of deceit and control.
Tortured by the most evil people that have ever existed, Franklin begins to understand that to escape his captors he must first escape what he was — the old Franklin — the way he used to be. Only then can he find a way to insure that no one will ever do this again.
"The young can't understand old tears, boy. They haven't had enough time to truly love."
