Louis Parker travels the continent on his motorcycle, writing and blogging his adventures, though it's all a cover for his raison d'être: private and corporate mechanics of the terminal variety. When his longtime friend and former agency controller, Nathan Malone, discovers there has been a hit placed on his own life, Louis must deal with the threat in his highly trained and objective manor -- extreme prejudice. Nathan and Louis uncover a deep conspiracy by the Speaker of the House and the President Pro Tempore of the Senate to assassinate the President and Vice President. The Speaker was once Nathan's boss at CIA. Now he's cleaning house ahead of a run for the White House, ridding himself of the skeletons left in the wake of his 30+ years of corruption while in the service of the United States. In his position, the Speaker has literally hundreds of potential co-conspirators in place at FBI, CIA and Secret Service, so there is no one Louis and Nathan can trust while dealing with this assassination and coup plot that's unfolding around them. With the clock ticking down, they must neutralize this devastating threat before the annihilation of the US Government happens live on international television.

The NWMP commander, Colonel George French, desperately attempts to have the boys escorted home. However, the brothers manage to tag along on the eight-hundred-mile march of NWMP men and wagons headed for Fort Whoop-Up, in what will one day be Alberta, with the hope that they will catch up with the thieves. Besides the terrible life-threatening hardships brought on by bad weather and brutal terrain, Rob worries about his mother and wounded father and fears he might even lose Luke and never find Smokey or the other horses.

In the stormy years before Ireland at last gained her independence a brilliant revival of Irish drama took place and culminated in the foundation of the Abbey Theatre in 1904. Of those who helped to create it - W.B. Yeats, Lady Gregory, the Fay brothers, and Miss Horniman - it was J.M. Synge as much as anyone who made the new Irish drama the force it quickly became in the theatres of the world. In his plays, as in the tragedy of classic simplicity, Riders to the Sea, or in his rich, tumbling comedy, The Playboy of the Western World, he aims to distill the Irish spirit.
