The last battle for freedom is underway....
By the end of Glenn Beck’s number-one best-selling political thriller The Overton Window, a young rebel named Molly Ross had torn aside the curtain to reveal a shadow war being waged for the future of America. In the six months since then, her fight for freedom hasn’t gone well. Marked as traitors and hunted by ruthless government-sanctioned mercenaries using the most advanced surveillance technologies ever created, Ross and her "Founders' Keepers" find themselves cornered and standing alone. but the fight is far from over.
The battle lines in this bitter rivalry are as old as civilization itself: On one side, an unlikely band of ordinary Americans, ready to make their last stand in defense of self-rule, freedom, and liberty - and on the other, an elite cabal of self-styled tyrants who believe that unlimited power should be wielded only by the chosen few. That group, led by an aging, trillionaire puppet-master named Aaron Doyle, will stop at nothing to destroy the myth that man is capable of ruling himself.
As Doyle prepares to make his final move toward a dark, global vision for humanity's future, new allies join the fight and old enemies change sides. In the midst of it all, Molly draws together a small but devoted group willing to risk their lives to infiltrate one of the most secure locations on earth - a place holding long-standing secrets that, if revealed, would forever change the way Americans view their rare, extraordinary place in history. Exposing these truths, and the real-life game of chess being played for mankind’s freedom, is their last chance to save the country they love.

Clearly a great follow-up was needed to the Overton Window and this delivered. More of the plan laid bare and a little more realization of the Liberties that are ours to protect.
I was so ready to love it. I wanted to love it. I tried. The first 30 seconds I could not even focus on the text. All I could think about was the voice. Could he breath alright? Why so low? Too many cigarettes? It was brutalizing work to continue to chapter 1. Surely it would get better.
BUT IT DIDN'T! The first chapter sounded like an automated voice, not even human. By chapter 2 I had given up hope. The various voices? I could never slip into the illusion that anyone other than the reader was speaking.
SIGH... I can't listen any farther. And not because its a poor text. Beck should never have allowed a switch in readers on this second book. I am convinced this reader has ruined the series.
This work of faction (Fiction based on facts) is positively Orwellian in it's prediction of where our country is potentially heading. The facts used in the story and any creative license taken with them are listed at the end of the book. This could be our country in five years (or less). In keeping with our founders ideology, Benjamin Franklin said that those who would sacrifice freedom for security do not deserve either one. Indeed.
It mirrors where America is headed, unless something changes! The far left, is too far left! The right is just as bad! Common ground lies in the center, where most Americans truly fall! Great job, Glen!
Excellently presented story. Hits the nail on the head as far as what will become of this great country if uninformed Americans don't wake up and witness reality.
I have recommended this book to all of my friends.
This was a thriller packed with great action. The story and character development, plot, and message were all executed masterfully.
I've had mixed opinions on Beck's other books, but this story has jumped to a whole new level. It is one of my favorite books..
