Abstract:

Special Agent Jeb Foster and the Rapid Intervention Team he leads are recruited to help the Russians retrieve quantities of stolen weapons-grade nuclear material. He was informed that an estimated 500 tons of highly-enriched uranium not covered by treaty was scattered at various sites around Russia; enough to produce 20,000 to 60,000 nuclear weapons. The problem was that although the U.S. and other countries were assisting the Russians to secure these stockpiles, many were known to be vulnerable. In fact, there was an additional quantity used for non-weapons purposes at facilities only lightly guarded or not guarded at all, making it easy for nuclear thieves to take what they wanted. This situation posed an inviting condition for the uranium to fall into nefarious hands. Almost from the beginning Jeb had a really bad feeling about the assignment when learning that not one, but multiple thefts had taken place from supposedly secure locations. His initial fears erupted into a nightmare with the mission constantly being thwarted by old-school, hard-line Russian politicians and military officers, and so too by unknown adversaries who anticipated his every move. Jeb and the A-Team's quest took them to secret cities where few outsiders had ever set foot. Sabotage left him stranded in the Arctic wilderness having to deal with the unforgiving conditions of the Siberian winter, from which survival is near impossible. Additionally, as time was running short Jeb feared the thieves would escape Russia with the stolen nuclear material. The body count of those who could have provided valuable information had steadily mounted, making his task all the more difficult. He knew if the stolen material passed into the hands of terrorists, who likely contracted for its theft, it would be for the sole purpose of delivering an unthinkably devastating blow to several major American cities.
