An intruder enters a secure work area and shoots three members of the US Navy, and two victims die. The work, the facility, and the people are all assigned to the Naval Security Group, which is the Naval component of the National Security Agency. One of the dead is a friend of Harm, who seeks to protect the family and the reputation of his friend. Clayton Webb, the CIA, a submarine, counter-espionage, and disinformation are involved. In a preliminary hearing Harm represents the government, and Bud represents the suspect, who is the one who survived the shooting. Harm figures out what happened. Meanwhile Renee returns from Minnesota with a big surprise, and Mac returns from Indonesia but soon goes back. Mac also receives a significant medal, but she gives it away.
Did You Know?
Much dialogue here concerns the real USS Jimmy Carter (SSN-23), the third and last member of the Seawolf class, commissioned in 2005 and still in service. SSN-23 is about 100 feet longer than either of her two sisters in the class, due to the presence of an additional section amidships, to provide space for equipment for increased multi-mission capabilities. She has advanced features which enable her to conduct highly classified operations in hostile locations and to remain undetected while doing so. See more
