Reviewed by Bob Walch

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?
