Two men were in Texas the day Kennedy was shot. One was Rupert Justice Tolliver, a poor preacher who boasted that he would one day be President. The other was Cobra, the Rhodesian assassin who, forty years later, would be hired to take Tolliver's life. In between is the story of the millennium: how a man came to power by urging the people of America to take up arms in a Holy War and the variable that Cobra wasn't counting one: Clarissa, the beautiful and ruthless First Lady. A woman who plays both sides of the conflict, and if she had her way, the next millennium will be one of demagoguery, mayhem, and bloodshed.
