In fond memory of my dear friend George Coleman
Twenty years ago, a brave young man in Vietnam saved the life of a widowed
French woman, and a brief, passionate affair ensued. Now that young hero is
President of the United States, a true golden boy - until the day his
world turn upside down. On a visit to Paris, he sees his former love again
for the first time, and she directs his attention to a beautiful woman
across the room. Her daughter, she says. And his. Their secret. But the
surprises are only beginning.
Someone, somewhere, has also discovered the truth, and acting with terrible
speed, a group of men seizes the girl. If the President does not comply with
their demands, they will execute her. He has ten days to decide.
The President turn to the only man he feels van help - Sean Dillon, the IRA
enforcer turned security specialist whose work has impressed the President
in London; and Blake Johnson, the decorated Marine and FBI agent who heads
the elite White House group known only as "The Basement". If these two cannot find his
daughter, the President must face the most momentous decision of all. And
meanwhile the hours tick by.......
