On the dangerous high seas of the Pacific, the U.S. Navy covertly tracks a Chinese ship rumoured to carry tons of chemicals for Saddam Hussein to create new biological weapons. The US President orders Fred Klein, head of Covert One, to find solid proof of what the suspect Chinese ship is ferrying. Operative Col. Jon Smith is sent to rendezvous in Taiwan with another agent who has acquired the ship's true manifest. But the second agent is murdered, the proof destroyed, and Smith is left only with a verbal message - the President's biological father is still alive, held a prisoner by the Chinese for fifty years. Smith must find the truth about the ship, a truth that probes the deepest secrets of the Chinese ruling party.
