In these harrowing times, with our enemies lurking in the shadows and their widespread tactics of unconventional warfare limiting the ability of our traditional armed forces, special measures are needed to fight this war on terror. Heeding this call the President has set up the Joint Services Special Demands Project. Known as "The Team" it is a unique unit existing beyond the bureaucratic restraints of either the U.S. intelligence or military establishments. With an almost unlimited budget, the Team--consisting of a CIA officer, two Special Forces commandos, and one outnumbered Marine--is authorized to track vital intelligence and then take immediate action. Called upon to track a quantity of radioactive waste that has gone missing in the former Soviet Union, the Team is faced with the fact that this material is now in the wrong people's hands. . . . And these terrorists are geared to wage the single deadliest attack ever on U.S. soil.
