Jerry Mitchell, commodore of submarine Development Squadron Five, grieves when USS Toledo is sunk just outside of Russian territorial waters.
His best friend was its captain. But there’s a larger game afoot: Russian engineers have modified a torpedo into a stealthy first-strike weapon that would allow their country to launch a nuclear decapitation strike on the USA.

To avoid a Russian war in Europe and a nuclear catastrophe at home, Mitchell must find a way to destroy the weapon – or millions will face the consequences.
