Charles Langham becomes the United States most wanted man. Following a presentation to the United Nations, United States President Read despatches an aircraft carrier to locate and eliminate Charles Langham. The chase is on and tensions increase when the Unites States Aircraft ca...rrier is becalmed at sea. President Read orders his private army to remove Langham from the equation permanently. Langham stands against the might of a nation and uncovers the sinister forces pulling its strings. Charles Langham becomes America's most wanted man. Billionaire eco-philanthropist Charles Langham sees's that the world is in crisis. That we live in a world where greed turns the wheels of state. A world where environmental concerns take a back seat to the vast machine of global commerce. A world where every day a 100 plant and animal species are lost to deforestation and 80,000 acres of tropical rainforest are lost daily. A world where 50% of all species will die out in the next 100 years. Charles Langham is determined to change that. Charles Langham implores the United Nations General Assembly to take a more active role in combating famine and the deforestation of rain forests, reversing extinction rates, and promoting alternative fuels. But this environmental plea has teeth. Langham gives the U.N. one week to comply, or he will force their hand. Anne Langham is attacked at their Amazon reforestation project by former employees of the unscrupulous lumber company they purchased the destroyed land from. United States President Mike Read, declaring Langham an eco-terrorist, has found the excuse he needs to remove Langham from the equation, permanently. In an attempt to secure his own political future and keep his plans secret, President Read despatches an Aircraft carrier to track Langham down. When the Aircraft carrier inexplicably becomes becalmed at sea, he sends his private army to eliminate Langham permanently. The chase in on, the thrilling adventure begins. Charles Langham must stand against the might of a nation, and uncover whatever sinister forces pull its strings from the worlds near past of the 1940's.
