Only three months have passed since Sam Houston St. Clair was sworn in as the new President, but a lot has happened. 

Returning from Vienna where he met with Russian and Chinese diplomats, Sam is making his way back to Flagler Hall in Miami, his first trip home since being inaugurated. 

Son Jack is in the midst of turmoil of his own back in Miami, dealing with various dramas, not the least of which is his increasing alienation from Babylon Fuentes and his growing attraction to the seductive Lupe Rodriguez. 

Fernando Pozo addresses new problems as he struggles to expand Cuba’s secret operations in the U.S., made even more difficult as U.S.-Cuban relations thaw. 

As his father returns home, Jack knows Sam will find as much trouble at home as he did in Vienna.
