The book opens as the January 6 attack on the Capitol is unfolding. After the attack, seeking to start a race war and overthrow the government, a white supremacist gang plots a terror attack at the NBA All-Star game. As the suspects infiltrate arena security, police and the FBI office become aware of a possible attack. With game day quickly approaching, the police and FBI race feverishly to stop the attack.
While the book is fiction, it is based on facts. The characters in The Spark confront a variety of issues currently plaguing our country. The growing threat of white supremacist groups has been identified by the FBI as the number one domestic terror risk.
