The rural Northern California coastal town of Crescent City was the last place anyone expected an Islamic terrorist attack. In their boldest move since 9/11, twenty-nine heavily armed terrorists invade the town's Fourth of July celebration where the Governor of California is giving a speech. When they turn their weapons on the crowd the result is a terrorist version of "Shock and Awe." With the Governor as hostage, the terrorists begin to destroy the town and its citizens while waiting for worldwide media coverage.
Only gay, female California Highway Patrol Sergeant Erin "Red" Wolff and a handful of cops stand in their way. What follows is a 24 hour struggle between the terrorist leader and "Red Wolff" as she plays for time while waiting for help to arrive.
But help isn't coming, at least not for day. The terrorist's planning had been meticulous. By attacking on a three-day holiday weekend they picked a time when the whole countries defenses were down. They blocked all the highways, cut off all communications, and isolated the entire city. The unthinkable had happened; Islamic terrorists were in control of an American town.
They made only made two mistakes in their planning: their first mistake was underestimating how hard ordinary Americans will fight back when attacked. Their second mistake was pissing off "Red Wolff."
