Gabriel Crane has spent 30+ years drifting from job to job, taking a stoic approach to life. He has settled on a private investigation career, but still finds time in the day to complain about it. Now the United States economy has crashed, which directly impacts his fraud investigation business.
After Gabriel leaves the bar where he decided to drown his sorrows, someone tries to kill him. The assassination attempt sets off a chain of events that thrusts Gabriel into the middle of a mythological battle between the forces of the underworld and the legendary beings of Olympus. Gabriel discovers he is the last hope for mankind, but does he really want the job?
While Gabriel struggles with his true identity, a new civil war is about to unfold in the United States. The forces of evil are hard at work, tearing away at the very fabric of the country. He soon becomes entangled in a battle which will take him from Virginia to Texas and all the way to a mythical island in the Pacific.
