It's been 18 months since Nicolae Carpathia's rise to power. U.S. President Gerald Fitzhugh, like most of America, whole-heartedly supports Nicolae's new global leadership, but there are those who do not. Some suspect he's something more -- the prophesied Antichrist. After a failed attempt on the president's life, Fitzhugh must call on Buck Williams and Carolyn Miller along with the rest of the Tribulation Force (Rayford Steele's daughter Chole, who is now Buck's wife, Pastor Bruce Barnes and the newest member Amanda White) to uncover the mystery. Soon the lives of President Fitzhugh and the Tribulation Force will be connected in ways they couldn't have imagined.
