When his investigative reporter brother is murdered while researching a story, Clay Barstow follows his trail into Kentucky and begins an investigation of his own.

As Clay delves further into the secrets of McAdam County and the ruling family that is its namesake, he finds himself drawn deeper and deeper into the conspiracyâas its target. Framed for murder and on the run from the bloodthirsty local militia, Clay desperately seeks his brother's killers and the secrets of the silicon dagger. Because if he can't reveal them in time, they just might enable the people of McAdam County to do what no one has dared in a century and a halfâdeclare independence from the United States of America.
