In this continuing saga, Crusaders of the Saltier picks up three years after the end of the first book of the trilogy, Knights of the Saltier.

The President has been assassinated and there have been several terrorist attacks around the country. The U.S. goes into lock down, using techniques perfected by Hitler’s Germany and Stalin’s Russia. The Knights of the Saltier becomes aware of illegal acts being committed against American citizens and step in to help.

During a battle underneath the nation’s Capitol building, the Knights of the Saltier must protect the witnesses of these illegal acts against the forces attempting to push aside the civil government once and for all.

Against the backdrop of this crisis gripping the nation, an unexpected romance develops between Tom Anderson and Emily McCafferty, two Knights of the Saltier caught up in the novel’s web of terrorism and political intrigue.
