In the year 2083, the United States of America is a very different place. FBI agent Jason Xia (pronounced "Shaw") is sent to investigate a terrorist threat. What he finds instead is the most famous missing person in American history, Callie Cook, a beautiful, young senator whose unexplained disappearance fifty years before threw a presidential election into turmoil. With Xia's help, Cook will have to navigate through a suddenly bizarre world to solve a half-century old mystery--the mystery of who she really is.
