A non-stop modern-day thriller in the genre of Tom Clancy. A terrorist plot takes against a US president's family with Nantucket as the backdrop.
Andrew Russell, the 46th president of the United States, his wife and two young children have brought back a Kennedy-era feeling of Camelot to the White House.
President Russell, an ex-Navy fighter pilot, and his family are spending another vacation on the beautiful island of Nantucket. The US Navy has deployed the USS Theodore Roosevelt carrier strike group along with America’s most advanced attack submarine, the USS Jimmy Carter with SEAL Team Two embarked, to the waters off Nantucket for pre-deployment workups that coincide with the president’s vacation.
After three years of planning, the Islamic Front has embedded terrorist cells on the island in preparation for the arrival of President Russell and his family.
Meanwhile, the US & NATO are becoming increasingly alarmed over China’s military build-up of the Spratly Islands in the South China Sea. The stage is set for a faceoff between these superpowers.
The people of Nantucket, descendants of hardy New England stock, along with the combined military and intelligence assets of the US Government are about to be challenged by the events unleashed on the tiny picturesque island.
Nantucket serves as the backdrop for this larger-than-life techno-thriller.

What I like about Nantucket -- much like New York City -- we were at the Sophie's T Pizza a couple years ago and Ben was there with his fiancee and no one batted an eye.
And I think that is part of the appeal of ACK -- everyone respects everyone else's privacy.
Attack on Nantucket
On this Friday, the president had a 10 a.m. tee time at the Sankaty Head Golf Club, located on the edge of Sconset. As was often the case, the president used his round of golf to mix work with leisure. Keeping with that practice, his first nine holes would be with his chief of staff, Sterling Spencer. Then, at the turn, their foursome would be filled out by the CEO of GE and Ben Stiller, a frequent summertime resident of the island, who was a terrible golfer but whose company the president enjoyed.
