“Drive keeps you moving until the very end.” - Cyrus Webb, Top 100 Reviewer, Amazon Vine Voice ?????

Either you’re in or you’re out.Enter the world of the Volunteers.In the late 19th Century, Woodbury Kane, a captain from Teddy Roosevelt’s Rough Riders, forms a secret society with the support of leading American industrialists and bankers. Over a century later, the tradition continues, in the same saloons and boardrooms of New York City, where it all began.

In this crime thriller, where historical and current events unite, Kane, Roosevelt, and Jacob Riis, a muckraking journalist, fight the tyranny of Tammany Hall in the first mission of the Volunteers during the late 1800s.

In today’s New York City, the descendants of the Volunteers recruit Annie Falcone, a police officer. She takes the oath: Et Omnia Recta, to make things right. She must protect the life of one man, Pap Martinez, America’s top technological mind, from a great adversary, Sheng, China’s most brutal and dark hacker. Her instincts alone will be the force behind the success or failure of the mission. Like so many good Volunteers before her, Annie’s survival depends upon her courage, her skill, and her drive.
