A jihadist group in the Middle East teams up with rogue Russian generals to take out a sitting United States president whose policies threaten a major shift in global nuclear power. They must stop him, even if that means assassinating the president and destroying that symbolic edifice of American power, the White House.
They send in a specialist, Nabil Hamdoon, a.k.a. The Contractor. He has a 100% mission success rate.
NSA, DHS and the FBI pick up chatter but are clueless in the mad scramble to locate and neutralize the Contractor as he spreads mayhem and death across Illinois, Maryland and the District of Columbia. He looks set to accomplish his mission as an increasingly desperate FBI and Secret Service dog his heels.
