America finds itself at another crossroad. A national election, now just two months old, re-orders the direction for the country. Incoming President Sam Kirklyn won with a thin electoral victory—bringing a far-left progressive agenda forward. The message was not lost on America’s foes, including General Secretary Kim-Jae Lee, leader of North Korea.

A failed missile launch from the NOKO Wonsan site explodes a minute after launch—falling into the Sea of Japan. The launch was in fact a first-strike attack on the US. The attack plan targets the US as NOKO demands a re-unification with the South or face a massive invasion. Lee reasons the new Kirklyn administration would shun a war posture be unable to respond for weeks, or longer, only to be embroiled in a new Korean war.

The stakes are high. A quick capitulation by the South would deter the US from halting the takeover. With China as a “passive supporter” a US intervention would endanger its ties with China.

The nuke nosecone falls in the water and is snagged in a fishing trawler’s nets. The trawler seeks help from a salvage ship, owned by Graylle Cassidy. He recognizes the package and alerts his friend, Declan, Dalton Crusoe’s half-brother. Dalton sees a unique opportunity: covertly modify the warhead controls and return it to the NOKO navy searching for debris. Then later remotely detonate it at the Wonsan missile site, appearing as a self-imposed nuclear tragedy by Lee.

Dalton convinces the President to employ the deception operation. With a new launch within days, Dalton must time the Wonsan detonation, and finally, track down and capture Lee before he escapes to China. As the world sleeps, Dalton’s team achieves its Deception Strategy and topples a dangerous nuclear threat.
