After a scientist who specializes in weapons and his family were kidnapped from Washington, D.C., the government realized there had been a serious national security compromise. Now, five years later, it has become all too apparent how serious that situation has become.

Tensions are mounting between China, North Korea and the U.S. at the same time as highly sophisticated weapons have surfaced in China. Meanwhile, in England, a professor has been murdered using an ancient Chinese torture technique that has British intelligence on edge.

Alex Hawke joins with his old friend and Scotland Yard colleague Ambrose Congreve to sift through the clues to see if they can determine what's going on.

Of course this turns out to be only the opening move in a deadly chess game between Hawke and Chyna Moon, a Chinese assassin and woman who is more than Lord Alexander's match.

To avoid an all-out nuclear war, Hawke will have to be at the height of his game as he infiltrates the Chinese underground, evades the military underground and tries to rescue the American scientist who is responsible for this shift in the balance of international power.

In the tradition of James Bond, Alex Hawke goes where his fellow operatives fear to tread and, no matter the obstacles, he'll never consider retreat or surrender.
