When Lt Colonel John Maxwell refuses to cover up his commanding Generals failure, he is put in charge of an antiterrorist operation that is clearly designed to kill or discredit him. Maxwell forms a dysfunctional relationship with Tamsyn Farish, and to everybodys surprise, they seem to have success. The question is, why? That question is answered when the Puppeteer shows them how, under his guidance, terrorists have placed three nuclear bombs behind major dams, using stolen submersibles previously used for undersea minerals exploration at Kerguelen. Maxwell must then protect Tamsyn, deal with a corrupt immediate commanding officer, and avoid being killed both by terrorists and by men sent by the General, and then persuade the Puppeteer to give him the disarming code. What neither realize is that terrorists, suspecting the Puppeteer, have invaded Kerguelen to prevent anyone from sending the disarming signal. All depends on Maxwell being able to obtain the code, and two young scientists and their guide to secure the equipment, and they do not realize what they have to do.
