There’s a new administration in the White House. But it’s the previous First Family who tops an international assassin’s hit list.
Matthew Keating is a former Navy SEAL — and a former President of the United States, now relocated to rural New Hampshire after a brave but ill-fated military mission cost him his second term.
All he wants is to sink into anonymity with his family (and his Secret Service detail). But when he’s briefed on an imminent threat against his daughter, Keating’s SEAL training may prove more essential than all the power, connections, and political acumen he gained as President.
The only daughter of former President Matthew Keating has been kidnapped by a Libyan terrorist who blames Keating for the deaths of his wife and three daughters. Keating uses his contacts at the White House administration, as well as some of his other contacts, to launch a military-style rescue operation.
Melanie’s kidnapping quickly becomes a matter of national security as well as a personal attack on Matthew, his family, and his emotional state.
