The Andaman Event was the catalyst for the greatest mass extinction event in the planet’s history. Foreknowledge is an advantage for President Lloyd Sinclair, who is trying to keep the information suppressed until he can secure what he considers as the US portion of the twilight zone—a narrow, life-sustaining longitudinal band circling the globe north of the equator.

However, he needs to “acquire” the twilight zone first, which starts in Central Mexico and ends at the southern border of the Honduras.
