Secret Service Agent Mike Banning has one of the most coveted agency assignments: guarding President Benjamin Walker. But everything changes when, during a horrific car accident, Banning is able to save the president but not the first lady, who plunges to her death. Eighteen months later, Banning is working in a less prestigious post at the U.S. Treasury when a covert group of North Korean terrorists -- posing as the South Korean president's envoy -- infiltrates the White House and takes President Walker and several members of his Cabinet hostage in an underground emergency bunker. Banning slips in undetected and is the only Secret Service agent alive in the White House. He must coordinate with the acting president, Speaker of the House Allan Trumbull; find the president's young son; and try to save the hostages before their leader kills his captives off one by one in order to start another Korean Civil War.
