"Off the coast of Indonesia, an American cargo ship has been seized by terrorists, its captain kidnapped and its crew mercilessly slaughtered. In Washington, a peace-loving President's refusal to punish the transgressors has enraged the sitting Congress. ... An ambitious young congressional assistant, Jim Dillon has discovered a time bomb hidden away in America's Constitution--a provision that could be used to wrest power from the Chief Executive, a long-forgotten law that could incite a devastating constitutional crisis-- and plunge the country into chaos. ... Suddenly there is much more at stake than the life of a single surviving hostage and a superpower's military credibility-- as a great nation prepares for war-- against itself."--P. [4] of cover.

Enjoyed the info on Constitutional law but characters were a bunch of wutzes. Too hard to accept the story. Read this just to kill time.
