Nick Scott fought in the SAS - the elite Special Forces unit of the British Army - during the first Gulf War. Captured and tortured, he was left a broken man. His daughter, Sarah, is a beautiful young scientist at Cambridge University who appears to have cracked one of the great scientific secrets of our age - cold fusion. Now, she has vanished. Sarah's longtime on-and-off boyfriend, Jed Bradley, is one of the SAS's toughest young soldiers. Nick and Jed have never gotten along because Nick doesn't want his daughter dating a soldier. Deep down, Jed reckons he joined the SAS just to win Nick's approval.Reluctantly, the two men combine their efforts to rescue Sarah and soon they are caught up in a global power play - a deadly web of intrigue in which Nick and Jed encounter a traitorous scientist willing to sell out his country; a sinister Arab intent on destroying Western civilization; and a beautiful but manipulative intelligence agent whose motives are unclear.Nick and Jed must fight their way through a war-ravaged Iraq as the regime of Saddam Hussein collapses around them. It is a desperate race to find the woman they both love - and to unlock the secret of the Ultimate Weapon.
