Little does real estate agent Julie Mahoney know when she steps into the empty house on Olive Street that she is taking the first step on the trail of a conspiracy reaching from the present day White House all the way back to Nazi Germany. After a ghoulish threat is made against the grandchildren Julie is raising after the death of her daughter, she teams up with police detective Seth Harris to unravel the secrets of the house on Olive and the identity of the man found murdered there. A fiery attempt on Julie's own life does not deter them. Joined by F.B.I. agent Joe Moline, and assisted by the discovery of a sixty year old journal, their pursuit of truth takes them from the streets of New Orleans and the discovery of stolen art to the hills of North Carolina where Julie's life is once again threatened by an anti-government militia group. She escapes only by using her wits. What does Julie know that she doesn't realize she knows? The final answer must come knocking on her door. . .
