Madame President, her family, an entourage of White House aids, and their Secret Service agents are headed to Versailles Palace for a winter meeting of the G-8 Summit. They know that a terrorist group called “The Seven” has attempted to assassinate Madame President and wants to bring down her administration. The White House intercepts intelligence that one of the Seven’s members is in Paris—a renowned French Chef who will participate in a special Versailles sugar baking competition at the Summit. One French chef turns up dead outside, in the snow-covered gardens, and Madame President’s husband and White House Social Secretary Gary Craig steps in to help lead the murder investigation. A historic and unexpected January blizzard keeps the Summit leaders and chefs on the Versailles grounds, and thus trapped, Gary and his team race against the clock to capture the killer and unmask another member of The Seven.
