Fresh off the harrowing events of THE GOLDEN HOUR, State Department crisis manager Judd Ryker is suddenly thrown into a quickly developing emergency in Zimbabwe, where a longtime strongman is being challenged for the presidency. Rumors are flying furiously: armed gangs, military crackdowns, shady outside money pouring in, and, most disturbing for the United States, reports of highly enriched uranium leaking into the market. And that’s all before Ryker even lands in the country. It gets much worse after that.

When Judd Ryker is appointed director of the new State Department Crisis Reaction Unit, he figures he has a mandate to help the United States respond more quickly to foreign crises, but he hasn’t reckoned with the intense State, Defense, Pentagon, White House and CIA infighting and turf battles he would face. Then comes the coup in Mali, which is his chance to prove that his theory of the Golden Hour actually works --- but in the real world, those hours move incredibly quickly, and include things he’d never even imagined.
