French security officers race to capture terrorists before they initiate an ingenious plot to destroy the Eiffel Tower and disrupt an innovative Middle East peace conference. As the Middle East descends into violence and chaos, the Paris sessions become the region’s last hope. The participants consider a Middle East Union designed to bring peace, democracy, and development to the region, thereby reducing the attraction of violent jihadists. A brilliant university professor and a U.S. Senator initiate the negotiations while a ruthless CEO attempts to advance the Senator into the White House for his own purposes. A pre-med student, seeking revenge for his lost love, schemes to undermine the CEO’s corporate objectives.
