In the highly charged political landscape of a post-COVID world, the leviathan superpowers of east and west are teetering on the brink of a monumental clash. Russia's power-hungry president is plotting a diabolical, devastating attack on US soil, with the help of determined jihadists, that could send the globe plunging into total war.
Coincidently, Franklin Marino, a former navy admiral, has been coaxed out of retirement by US Homeland Security. His commission: assemble an elite SEAL unit to deal with the unknown threats posed by malevolent forces from any quarter of the planet.
When the Russian plot is uncovered, Marino and his covert operatives race to avert the deaths of thousands of innocents. The terrorists have infiltrated Southern California and set in motion a series of horrific events orchestrated to cause unimaginable destruction and mayhem. Marino and his team must somehow identify and neutralize the impending attack. But time is running out and the survival of the country hangs in the balance.
