A brilliant scientist has stolen research documents to develop the most important weapon the U.S. has developed in the last half century. He has taken them to Mexico, where he plans to sell the secrets to a U.S. enemy. The FBI cannot arrest a Mexican citiizen, so a private team of ex-military professionals is assembled to recover the stolen documents. Two retired U.S. Army Colonels, and ex-U.S. Marine Captain, and ex-FBI agent, a retired Mossad agent and a Special Service soldier. The NSA allows one of their best agents, Sally O'Connell, to assit the team. The thief is a near-genius and has planned this theft for years, including mis-directing his pursuers. The chase takes them to Mexico, then to Israel, Damacus, Syria, and to Paris. The team must somehow out-plan and outwit the thief and recover the secrets.
