When a monstrous earthquake strikes, Victor Kowalski plunges through a chasm in a hotel floor, and is entombed in impenetrable blackness with a man who calls himself "Bruce." As the air thins and death grows close, Victor, a born-again Christian, prays for a painless passing. Following suit, Bruce asks God to forgive him for his sordid sins, including having seven people murdered to "get to the top." But they are miraculously rescued, and Victor perceives who Bruce actually is: Thomas J. Douglas, sitting President of the United States! The President tries to buy Victor's silence, but Victor refuses and issues Douglas a grim ultimatum: He must fully disclose his sinister past to America in one month, or Victor will do it for him in The Christian Times, of which Victor is the chief editor.

Three days later, two androgynous albinos named Jack and Jill suddenly appear on every video device in the USA—and the reign of cyber-terror has begun. Describing themselves as "progressive environmentalists," the transsexual couple present Mother Gaia's radical plan to change America into one free of white people, the military and police, fossil fuels, aircraft and cars, and toxic thoughts. And they order President Douglas to resign in one month.

The mighty NSA cannot locate Jack and Jill. President Douglas refuses to step down, threatens to kill Victor and his family if he does not retract his ultimatum, and Jack and Jill periodically launch cyber-attacks to compel Douglas to resign. Will Victor and his family survive? Will America? Or is God using Jack and Jill to judge the country for its collective, unrepentant sins? One thing is certain: Black Secret will take you on the wildest literary ride of your life!
