A suspense novel that exposes a ruthless conspiracy against all Americans. Nearly thirty years after Rich Coleman and Erica Fox narrowly survive their chilling death pact they are still together and thriving. Rich Coleman's son Matt has just passed the bar exams and is anxious to make his fortune practicing law. Unfortunately his plans to be a PI attorney have been soured by tort reform. Matt's new bride Lynn is a marketing major and, with the help of her college professor, comes up with a brilliant marketing plan - convince people that the credit card companies are manipulating them into a permanent state of financial slavery.
Since their financial distress is a result of these practices there is no shame involved in filing a bankruptcy to get out of their grip and become a free person again. As a result of this plan business booms and bankruptcy filings climb. Of course several banks that are involved in predatory credit card practices are severely hurt. The problem is that these are very powerful people and they do not want his success to continue, nor do they want other lawyers copying his success in other parts of the country.
