Billionaire industrialists Sheldon and Richard Haft are accustomed to manipulating the system to achieve their agenda, but when they decide the government isn’t serving them as well as it could, they decide to take it to the next level. Richard stumbles upon the Angels of Democracy, a group of Good Samaritans headquartered on Southern California near the Mexican border. What if the brothers take a chunk of their considerable fortune and fund the group into a paramilitary force capable of changing society?
The outcome yields chaos on the nation’s southern border, upheavals in the highest levels of government, and a new America which could not have been envisioned—except by the Haft brothers themselves.
