Then a deathbed confession from his predecessor warns him to watch out for anything referred to as "The R Document".

As nation after country ratifies the modification, pushing it ever toward turning into the legislations of the land, Collins needs to resolve an incredible conspiracy--before time runs out for the basic liberties of all Americans.
