Barracuda 945 is the ultimate weapon. A jet black Russian nuclear hunter-killer, it runs deep, and its silence and speed are fearsome. It can stay submerged indefinitely and can fire land-attack guided missiles from below the surface. Invisible to any pursuer, it is nearly impossible to track in the millions of square miles of ocean water.
In the hands of a Navy, it brings instant credibility and respect.
In the hands of a diabolical terrorist, it could launch unspeakable horror.
Admiral Arnold Morgan, the President's National Security Adviser, meets his greatest enemy yet, a special forces military genius who now leads the most vicious terrorist group in the Middle East. Morgan valiantly marshals America's forces, nearly helpless in the face of an enemy they cannot detect, a nightmare of modern warfare.
