In Ferrigno's second Assassin novel, nuclear war has devastated the United States, leaving North America divided by two opposing factions: an Islamic republic and a Christian Bible Belt. The ensuing conflict provides the premise of this terrifyingly plausible story. L.J. Ganser provides three unique voices for the main characters, adding regional accents when necessary for the dialogue. For the narrative Ganser affects a flat narration, occasionally stressing syllables in unusual places. As the story progresses, he draws listeners in with a more natural cadence and a "near-future dialect" that is at once familiar and uncomfortably alien.
