Just days before his retirement, Marine Major General Stanley Petersen is severely injured and then suffers a fatal heart attack while watching the famous Friday night retreat parade at the Marine Barracks in Washington DC. Despite his utter certainty that he had died as a result, General Petersen wakes up at Bethesda Hospital very much alive but in the body of another fatally injured Marine and is dumbfounded by this fact.
He quickly discovers that his body and mind had been the host of a very unusual entity for decades, and that in its wish to have his mind survive it had transferred it into the body of the dying young man while repairing his body and bringing it back to full health.
Major Dan Evans, as he is now called, is recruited to foil an Al-Qaida plot to create a West Coast 9/11 type mission since he had gained many years of experience in finding and eliminating such operatives, but never on such a huge scale. He uses the unique powers inherited from the Entity he had hosted to thwart the Jihadist mission and establishes himself as a premier anti-terrorist combatant for the US Armed Forces and the CIA.
