A new Kennedy has been elected president. A man who has inherited all the good looks, wealth, and youthful idealism of his famous uncles.

But the energetic new president is also haunted by the darker side of the Kennedy legacy – a legacy of tragedy even the best intentions may be powerless to avert. Now the horrifying assassination of a great world leader and kidnapping of the president's daughter by terrorists have launched President Kennedy on a desperate course that could end in disaster – unless he is stopped.
