It happens with startling swiftness and violence. An armed cadre seizes state control. Fortunately, a coup d'etat can't happen here. Or can it? At odds are a popular general and Joint Chiefs of Staff Chairman and an unpopular President with a pacifist agenda. At stake is the survival of the Republic. A vigilant colonel uncovers the scheme. But are the seven fateful days ahead enough time to derail a takeover? The clock is ticking.
