Hawke and Caitlin travel to remote island to find out what happened to a biological warfare research station there and to try to retrieve a vital antidote to a viral agent which the Russians have unleashed and has gone out of control in Afghanistan. They are forced into an uneasy alliance with a team from a Russian submarine which needs the antidote as much as they do.[1]
