Warning! This story contains impolite language, graphic violence, a little sex, and is very politically incorrect.

Jackie Key inherits a full scholarship from a rich man murdered by his brother, and seeks justification by studying the economic ripple effects of the dissolution of the dead man’s assets. What he discovers and tries to publish makes him become public enemy number one among the country’s rich and powerful because Dr. Jackie Key can calculate a true economic price on their heads.

From Jeff Posey, author of The G.O.D. Journal, comes a contemporary political thriller that exposes the cruelly tilted playing field of American economics and politics, and how the government’s response drives Nobel Prize-winning economist Jackie Key to become the mastermind of a team of assassins who target his hit list of the “too rich to exist.”

When Jackie Key overhears his parents’ employer refer to his household staff as “subhuman,” he rushes forward with a kitchen knife that ultimately frames the cook. His brother, a trained military assassin, wrests the knife from Jackie and plunges it between the ribs of the 127th-richest man in America.

Twenty-five years later, Dr. Jackie Key is prepared to publish a model that calculates an economic price on the heads of the richest people in the country, the ultimate justification for the murder his brother committed. Maura Booker, senior correspondent for The New York Times, hounds Jackie into an interview, and then embeds herself with Jackie as government and private forces attempt to quash Dr. Jackie Key’s publication and vilify him as an enemy of the state.

Jimmy, Jackie’s brother who he thought died decades ago, returns leading a team of trained and motivated assassins. Jackie’s moral world twists and turns as he grapples with the disproportionate response to his life’s work and finds an unexpected chance at love with Maura, who stays by his side and writes books and articles for an increasingly angry public. Under enormous pressure, Jackie transforms himself into an assassin with a code, an icebreaker for change, a standing threat of mayhem against the arrogant rich and powerful if they refuse to change their globally destructive behavior.
