The original Patriot Element founders are retired but agree to meet with L. Trumble “Bull” Caruthers, a decorated Navy Commander and maverick Senator with an eye on the Presidency. He has taken on the impossible mission of returning America to its former glory. Helping with that task are the new breed of Patriot Element members drawn from the millions of highly trained military veterans. To accomplish the prodigious feat, Caruthers encourages Patriot Element members to enter public service through a new political party with no affiliation to any traditional party. 

"Annals of the Element" is the story of the struggle to restore sanity, honesty, justice, integrity, and above all, freedom for its law-abiding citizens. No branch of the government is immune from being targeted, The Executive, Legislative and Judicial branches are all in the crosshairs of reform. Throughout its history, Congress has traditionally feathered its own nests instead of considering what is best for the country. “Bull” Caruthers sets out to inject integrity back into the entity that produces the laws all majority came from the ranks of former Armed Forces personnel and the Patriot Element. 

"Annals of the Element" is the third book of the "Brothers Lost trilogy". In the first book, the founders, identical twins sold illegally at birth, eventually locate each other and their heritage. With the help of a former Navel SEAL turned professional surfer and his cadre of Special Forces veterans, they uncover and dismantle a rogue Army drug cartel and transfer millions into their own private offshore bank account. The sequel, "The Patriot Element" is the story of how the twins form the Patriot Element. The new team tackles a ruthless kidnapper and his gang with deadly results. That mission attracts the attention of Senator “Bull” Caruthers, who turns to the Element when his only son is also kidnapped. Caruthers chooses to ignore traditional law enforcement because negative publicity would harm his chances of ascending to the office of the President of the United States. The covert operation to rescue the ten year-old is a success and prompts the Senator to include the Patriot Element members in his plans to revamp how America and its frustrated citizens is governed.
