On a busy Washington morning, a group of terrorists has descended on the White House Executive Mansion and gained access by means of a violent massacre; almost one hundred hostages are taken. Through the quick actions of the Secret Service, the President is evacuated to his underground bunker. While the politicians and the military leaders argue over how to negotiate with the terrorists,Mitch Rapp, the CIA's top counterterrorism operative, makes his way into the White House and soon discovers that the President is not as safe as Washington's power elite had thought.
