Most people who have achieved success have found themselves, at times, on the brink of failure.
The scene shifts to Mexico where a number of people are meeting to discuss Japan's suit against the United States to have the United States redeem the bonds Japan has purchased from the United States. The payment must be in gold.
There is conflict with the members and we notice that outside the area of the meeting, Texas Ranger Danny Cavanaugh is in Mexico contemplating suicide after being wrongfully accused of the murder of an FBI agent who Danny knew was dirty.
Danny is thinking of his own troubles when he sees Sydney Dumas trying to escape from a gunman. Danny helps her and learns of the economic plot against the USA.
Are these events connected? There is a lot going on and many characters seem to change their loyalty either to those wanting to benefit from the overthrow or to the United States.
The middle of the book is a cat and mouse chase with Danny and Sydney the targets, hunted by the evil forces who are members of The Group.
Things get more complicated when officials in Washington D.C. find a number of dirty bombs and learn what country was responsible for those bombs.
It is a highly puzzling plot where it is easy to get lost in the various ins and outs of the story. I enjoyed the story but wasn't convinced of the likelihood of it being true or the coincidences that I found in the story.
