Stunned and outraged by the extravagant lifestyles of the Saudi Arabian Royal Family , the Crown Prince and heir to the throne recruits France to help him overthrow the Saudi ruler. With the aid of French hunter killer submarines the Prince plans to inflict heavy damage on the massive oil installations and loading docks on the shores of the Red Sea and the Persian Gulf, thus destroying the Saudi oil industry and bankrupting the monarch. While the French Special Forces engage in a daredevil operation above and below water, the mysterious Major Jacques Gamoudi marshals yet more ex-French Foreign Legion fighters to take the Southern military base on the Yemen border, then the capital city of Riyadh. Quickly, Admiral Arnold Morgan is called from retirement once more to take charge of the counter-operation from the White House. In a desperate battle for the desert kingdom, Gamoudi is joined by Morgan's old nemesis, Hamas' General Ravi Rashood. The French intend to assassinate Major Gamoudi, but with the world's oil markets in chaos, the US has one aim - to take him alive and force a confession for what the French have done.

Appalled at his family's extravagant lifestyle, Crown Prince Nasir vows to end their careless and destructive rule, and sets in motion a top-secret operation to destroy the Saudi oil industry and bankrupt the monarchy.
Nasir turns to France with their Hunter Killer guided missile submarines, which can inflict devastating damage on the massive oil installations on the shores of the Red Sea and the Persian Gulf.
Under the command of the mysterious and lethally effective Col. Jacques Gamoudi -- nicknamed Le Chasseur, or "The Hunter" -- the ferocious battle for the desert kingdom begins. As the world's oil markets plunge into chaos, Admiral Arnold Morgan and Lt. Cdr. Jimmy Ramshawe are summoned to the White House to discover that Gamoudi has been joined by none other than Morgan's archenemy, Hamas General Ravi Rashood, in the battle for the capital city of Riyadh.
