America is being flooded with drugs, and the US Coast Guard can't find out why. HMS Chester is in the Caribbean conducting trials and is tasked to aid a new anti-drugs task force. Helicopter pilot Lieutenant Commander Jonathon Hunt and his observer, Brian Pearce, become involved when it is decided that the war needs to be taken to the enemy. The strength of the British and American military is pitted against the ingenuity of the Columbian drug-smuggling cartels and results in a dramatic confrontation off the coast of Columbia.
This is the third naval novel following the career of Jon Hunt and once again is based on the author's own military experience.
