CIA operator, Eric Brent and his revolutionary light weapon invention is used by CIA to flush out a secretive, "phantom" military/civilian group hostile to a free-spending, over-reaching U.S. Government.Recovering from gunshot wounds, this final assignment comes before Eric enters the private sector as a weapons inventor/researcher. The intelligence assignment goes astray when Eric exposes a far-reaching andwell-planned American military "takeover" that is within days of unfolding within the U.S. Strained loyalties arise as the "phantom" group appeals to Eric and his seniors. At the height of his infiltration, former lover Jill Warrenreenters his life. A press secretary for a political candidate heavily involved in the RIGHT GUARD, inquisitive and headstrong Jill enrages the small secret core within the CIA protecting Eric, placing her own life in danger. Thissmall, loyal group within the intelligence community struggles to organize counter-moves to the Right Guard, yet stay undetected. They discover day by day an alarming and surprising mix of industrialists, businessmen, andgovernment officials who are immersed and leading the movement. Personal and professional conflicts for Eric arise as he gathers evidence and information and reaches back in his high-ranking father’s Nazi Germany past…tosolicit help. Keeping himself and Jill safe while protecting the U.S. President from Right Guard arrest—all lead up to the final few minutes in the Oval Office as Right Guard U.S. Senators approach the President and thetakeover unfolds. The year is 1978, yet The Right Guard eerily depicts the present state of the political and economic climate of the U.S. and a possible, alarming scenario and outcome.
