Brady Air Force Base, Crete. A small yellow aeroplane swoops down out of the calm mediterranean skies, its guns blazing. On the ground, rows of the latest hi-tech jet fighters are reduced to no more than burning wrecks in seconds. Their unlikely destroyer appears to be a World War One German biplane. Patrolling nearby is an old flying boat belonging to the National Underwater and Maritime Agency. In the cockpit, NUMA troubleshooter Major Dirk Pitt picks up the panicked distress call from Brady and seizes the chance to fight back. In the desperate aerial dogfight that follows Pitt eventually gains the upper hand. But while the battle is won, the mysterious plane and its pilot escape, leaving just destruction and unanswered questions in their wake. The mystery soon deepens when Pitt encounters a seductive double agent and starts to uncover evidence of a deadly plot with, at its head, a evil mastermind who is hiding a dangerous and chilling past. And who will now stop at nothing to achieve his twisted ambitions.
