So, what if you're Jonathan Prophet, a widower, a father (three beautiful girls, including 8-year-old twins), and a deputy sheriff in Vidalia County, Georgia, and it's been a hot summer Sunday on roadblock duty at the Flint River Bridge looking for escaped cons from state correctional, and this mother of all thunderstorms blows up to break the drought, and you're left alone when your partner takes a Code Seven to go for burgers, and this UFO barrels in through the downpour twenty feet over your head and smashes into the red Georgia clay and you think that taking a close look might change your life?
WHAT IF YOU'RE ABSOLUTELY CORRECT?
And what if it turns out you're NOT just an ordinary guy trying to make it, but instead you have this incredible talent that makes you unbelievably valuable to certain people, and you land yourself in this really bad situation, and all your courage and training and luck aren't enough to prevent the worst from happening?
WHAT IF SOMEBODY TAKES YOUR DAUGHTERS?
And what if you're in the middle of somebody else's war, trying to get your girls back, and you wind up in Camp David trying to convince the President of the United States that his worst nightmares have come true? And what if you bring this gorgeous female person with you, and that person does something awful, in spite of the Secret Service and all the Marines in the world?
And what if, before it's over, you put everything you value in deadly peril—your life, your country, even the future of the human race itself—just to get your girls back?
THEN WHAT, JONATHAN PROPHET? THEN WHAT?
