A freelance fixer comes out of retirement to rescue the President & rsquo;s kidnapped brother American agents abduct a high-profile terrorist in broad daylight on the streets of London, subduing him with a tranquilizer. He dies a few hours later on a flight back to Washington, DC, and the body is dropped into the ocean. Hours later, the President & rsquo;s brother & mdash;a political powerhouse in his own right & mdash;boards a plane to Las Vegas that doesn & rsquo;t land in Nevada.
