The mine is an impartial killer, and a lethal challenge to the men of the Royal Navy's special countermeasures. Lt-Commander David Masters, haunted by a glimpse of the mine that destroyed his first and only command. Lt Chris Foley, mine-laying off the enemy coast rolls on an uneasy sea with a live mine jammed by a broken release bracket. And Sub-Lt Michael Lincoln, hailed as a hero, but dreading exposure as a coward even more than the gentle whirr of the activated fuse which signals the last twelve seconds of his life.
