Revolution follows popular, plain-talking Montana Governor
Benjamin Kane as he walks a harrowing tightrope between his
conscience and the law. When Washington attempts to
federalize major state functions, a group of young,
reactionary lawmakers get elected to the state government
and do political battle with the overreaching federal
administration. Ben and his close-knit group of political
cohorts risk all as they attempt to rein in the radical
legislature, hold the federal government at bay, and
maintain the sovereignty of their state.

Goodwyn, a Cornell University graduate student,
inadvertently returns home to sleepy Ithaca, N.Y. from
an archaeological dig at the Cenacle, the purported
site of the Last Supper, with an ancient bone box. The
ossuary is found to contain several pieces of early
first century stoneware, and a mysterious, tiny
scroll. When the Aramaic glyphs on the slip of
crumbling papyrus are translated, they identify the
humble dinner setting as the one used by a
rabblerousing Nazarene rabbi at his Seder meal, on the
evening he'd been arrested by the Romans.
One ill-considered impulse - asking a local
parish priest to say Mass with the ceremonial
Seder cup - sweeps Jennifer away to churches,
cathedrals, sports stadiums, and to a powerful
Cardinal's basilica to celebrate Mass with the
vessel and to exhibit it before ever-growing
crowds of believers.

white sand beaches, lush highland forests, every inch teeming
with exotic flowers and wildlife. But a closer look reveals
widespread abnormal behavior among the native animal species;
behavior that Jackie recognized as deeply problematic.
Despite her misgivings, she wasn't inclined to turn down a
