Tall, dark, and seething with hatred, Mustafa al Shatar lives only for vengeance. Liu Pen, spymaster for the Peoples Republic of China, envisions using Islamic terrorists to disrupt Western interests on China’s vulnerable southern flank. Admiral Suluvana plots to overthrow the Indonesian government and establish an Islamic state. Together, they scheme to use a genetically engineered version of small pox to attack the West. Their secret base is Nusa Funata, a dark and inhospitable island in the Java Sea. Jon Hunter commands the nuclear submarine SAN FRANCISCO. Driven by an inner fire, Hunter relentlessly pursues every opportunity to prove himself and his beloved boat. Hunter’s boss, Commodore Carlucci, will do anything to move his own career forward, including holding Hunter down. When the US intelligence agencies catch some whiffs of the activity on Nusa Funata, the SAN FRANCISCO is ordered to find out what is going on. Once they have confirmed that Nusa Funata is being used to manufacture the deadly biological weapon, the threat must be neutralized. It is exactly the type mission that Hunter had been praying for.

Commander George Wallace USN (ret.) served in the US Navy for twenty-two years as an officer on nuclear submarines. After receiving his commission through Naval ROTC at The Ohio State University, he served on two of Admiral Rickover's famous "Forty One for Freedom", the USS JOHN ADAMS (SSBN 620) and the USS WOODROW WILSON (SSBN 624). He made nine one-hundred-day deterrent patrols during the height of the Cold War. Commander Wallace served as Executive Officer on the Sturgeon class nuclear attack submarine USS SPADEFISH (SSN 668). Spadefish and all her sister-ships were de-commissioned during the downsizings that occurred in the 1990's. Reflections on the passing of such capable “boats” inspired his first novel, the National Best Seller, Final Bearing, co-authored with Don Keith. Their second novel, Firing Point, is in production as a major motion picture. Commander Wallace commanded the Los Angeles class nuclear attack submarine USS HOUSTON (SSN 713) from February 1990 to August 1992. During this tour of duty, he worked extensively with the SEAL community developing SEAL/submarine tactics. Under his command, the Houston was awarded the CIA Meritorious Unit Citation. Commander Wallace and his wife Penny live in Alexandria, Virginia.
