By the end of The Overton Window, young rebel Molly Ross had torn aside the curtain to reveal a shadow war being waged for the future of America. In the six months since then, her fight for freedom hasn't gone well. Marked as traitors and hunted by ruthless government-sanctioned mercenaries using the most advanced surveillance technologies ever created, Ross and her "Founders' Keepers" find themselves cornered and standing alone in The Eye of Moloch. The battle lines in this bitter rivalry are as old as civilization itself – an unlikely band of ordinary Americans ready to make their last stand in defense of self-rule, freedom, and liberty vs. an elite cabal of self-styled tyrants who believe that unlimited power should be wielded only by the chosen few. That group, led by an aging, trillionaire puppet-master named Aaron Doyle, will stop at nothing to destroy the myth that man is capable of ruling himself. As Doyle prepares to make his final move toward a dark, global vision for humanity's future, new allies join the fight and old enemies change sides. In the midst of it all, Molly draws together a small but devoted group willing to risk their lives to infiltrate one of the most secure locations on earth – a place holding long-standing secrets that, if revealed, would forever change the way Americans view their rare, extraordinary place in history. Exposing these truths and the real-life game of chess being played for mankind's freedom is their last chance to save the country they love.
Beck, a ten-time #1 bestselling author, is one of the few authors in history to have #1 national bestsellers in the fiction, nonfiction, self-help and children's picture book genres. His #1 bestselling novels include The Overton Window, The Christmas Sweater and The Christmas Sweater: A Picture Book. His #1 nonfiction books include Control, Cowards, The Original Argument, The 7: Seven Wonders That Will Change Your Life (with Dr. Keith Ablow), Broke, Glenn Beck's Common Sense, Arguing with Idiots and An Inconvenient Book.
