Under the command of Ben Raines, the Southern United States of America rose up and crushed a corrupt federal government--and then beat back enemy assaults from all corners of the world. But while some leaders surround themselves with lackeys and bodyguards, Raines lives the way he always has. And so, when his small plane crashes in Canada's Northwest Territory, Raines is on his own, with the advantage of a survivalist's skills and a couple of disadvantages, including the fact that he doesn't remember his name. Raines had come to Canada on a hunt for a vicious terrorist organization. Now, they have found him. Without a memory, without an ally, and without a gun, he must fight off the men who shot down his plane--and then face the army behind them. On his own private ground zero, Ben Raines is going to learn fast: that only way out is to make his enemies die first?
