Two story lines, one present, one past, come together in this thriller.

Lake, a covert operative for the US is now on a race with time against rogue militia terrorists to find and destroy this weapon before the terrorists in order to prevent a nuclear disaster of epic proportions.

They detonate the other to destroy all evidence.
