When an experimental nuclear submarine is hijacked in broad daylight, only Admiral Jake Grafton stands between the deadly cargo and its intended target: Washington D.C. He learns that a rogue CIA group, originally trained to steal Russian technology during the Cold War, may be behind the operation. Now the race is on to find out where the submarine is, who is behind the nightmare scenario and—most critically—how to stop it.
On a quiet park bench in Manhattan a spymaster delivers a chilling secret message to Jake Grafton: a rogue Russian general has sold four nuclear warheads to a radical Islamic terrorist group who intends to detonate them in America. Grafton is charged by the president to find the warheads. Calling on the assistance of the indomitable Toad Tarkington, and CIA burglar Tommy Carmellini, he raids the prisons to assemble his team while the clock ticks toward Armageddon.

Smart money says someone in the U.S. government is behind the massacre and is now after Carmellini.
