The U.S. and China have emerged in the millennium as the pre-eminent superpowers. Japan and the U.S. have worked in secret at a disused nuclear safety research center on a remote island in the South China Sea to perfect a viable nuclear fusion reactor. Suddenly, the black veil of secrecy is shredded, the long-shot project is on the verge of breakthrough, and the Chinese want the prize for themselves.
Desert Storm combat-veteran Commander Ben McGuire, a small SEAL team, and an isolated group of scientists struggle with sabotage, typhoon weather, a rapidly approaching and extremely well equipped Chinese fleet, and a radical new reactor that some of the scientists are terrified of shutting down.
Ben McGuire, a battle-proven Naval officer, left active duty to save his marriage. In civilian life he works as a computer consultant. When the story heats up, he is serving out his annual two-week hitch aboard the Seventh Fleet Commander's flagship a few hundred miles away in the Sea of Japan. Thinking it a low priority issue, Navy officials dispatch the Reservist to run a mission to evacuate scientists from a nearby island. Events on the island will not only reunite him with an old love interest but also place him in a position to affect the balance of power between the U.S. and China for years to come.
