A new Kennedy has been elected president. A man who has inherited all the good looks, wealth, and youthful idealism of his famous uncles. He is Francis Xavier Kennedy - and suddenly the old dynastic dream of a better America again seems possible.

But the energetic new president is also haunted by the darker side of the Kennedy legacy - a legacy of tragedy that he may be powerless to escape.

When his daughter is kidnapped by terrorists, President Kennedy is forced to make desperate decisions. As his violent reprisals take effect, the world holds its breath.

A compelling, prescient and engrossing novel from the author of The Godfather.
