NYPD detective John Ward is visiting his ex-wife and daughter in
Colorado, but his stay in the small town of Basalt turns out to
be far more than a social visit.
A group of foreigners buying property in the area seem to be setting
up what looks decidedly like a training camp. Something is definitely
afoot here and Ward doesn't like what's happening. The deeper he
digs into the town's new arrivals, the more Ward realizes he has
stumbled upon something sinister.
The original inhabitants of Basalt are going to have to stand
up and fight for what is theirs or they will lose everything they
treasure, including their own freedom.
Johnstone raises the question of what would happen if you discovered
"the enemy" you thought was thousands of miles away, halfway
around the globe, was really in your own backyard?
