From start to finish, there was something about this mission that wasn't quite right, Lieutenant-Colonel Martin thought.

Not that there was anything wrong with the basic concept — apart from its being extremely hazardous. In fact, there was a delicious irony in the idea of putting some crude, hastily-built wind-powered craft up against the most sophisticated and hi-tech surveillance systems the Russian Navy possessed.

In Cold War parlance, the British government liked to think of it as a counter-intelligence mission — but the Russians were more likely to see it as an act of international piracy. So the entire operation had to be cloaked in secrecy, and only the men of the legendary Special Boat Squadron were considered capable of getting away with it.

But things were beginning to go wrong. Suddenly the secret base on the Greek island of Samos wasn't so secret any more, and a cover operation set up as camouflage quickly turned out to be even more dangerous than the mission itself.

And the clock was already ticking — on a deadly time bomb which could blast the volatile Middle East into all-out war. To rescue the situation, all the tactical prowess and monumental daring of the SBS would be required – and there would be no second chances.
