This meticulously researched and photographed account follows three University of Montana scientists and their interdisciplinary work with osprey: fish-catching birds with gigantic nests and a family that functions with teamwork and cooperation. Today the osprey is studied to monitor the effects of mercury on living things. The osprey hunts in a very small area around its large nest and so scientists can pinpoint where mercury is coming from. In Missoula, Montana, the scientists have been following ospreys for six years, collecting data on the amount of contaminants found on their feathers and in their blood. The rivers and streams in Western Montana are still suffering effects from inappropriate mining activities performed more than a hundred years ago. This man-made pollution is still dangerous to people and to wildlife.

Thomas Thorn is a rough-guy CIA agent who’s been on surveillance detail in Chicago for the past forty-eight hours. He and his genius partner Irish have the ‘eyes and ears’ on a power hungry wannabe and his twenty-something mistress, when a call is intercepted. The voice on the intercept is someone codenamed the “Manipulator” who says the local senator “will be” the next resident of the White House. Thorn understands fully that he has just heard the conversation that if left unfettered will change the world. He surmises quickly that the Manipulator and his European cronies are out for world domination. They seek a new world order in which they hold all the power, but first, they need their puppet senator elected president of the United States. Unbeknownst to Thorn his talents are about to be incorporated into use by a very powerful secret organization known as The Keepers—a powerful counterforce dedicated to the dreams of America’s forefathers. A rocket ride of twists and bullets ensues as Thorn and team embark on their quest to stop the Manipulator’s duly dispatched vile agent of death—a man simply called Lyons, who has been charged with the plans to vault the puppet senator into the most powerful position in the world. Shortly after, Thorn is then called to a meeting in a small town in North Carolina where he learns of many other elements that are endangering all that America stands for. It is also at this gathering where he meets the temptress agent Vikki Gold. Three days later, after a whirlwind romance with the world-class beauty, his life is turned upside down aboard a yacht moored off of the shores of Key West. It is on board that he learns the truth about his past, the shadow life of his mom and the death of his father at the hands of Lyons. With likeness of mind, vengeance of heart, he and Vikki Gold are vaulted into action along the shores of the East Coast where every stop is a near death experience, but the steadfast goal remains the same. To stop Lyons and to save the United States—by any means necessary.
