Description

Juan de Santiago is not only a billionaire cocoa grower, but also a deranged revolutionary and the com mander of the most powerful army in South America. Backed by rogue nations who supply him with the latest weaponry, de Santiago devises a plan that will dishearten the American anti-drug effort and make him El Jefe once and for all. Tom Kincaid was an expert on Columbia whose connections went to de Santiago himself. But when US politicians demand a publicity-driven drug bust, they blow Kincald's network, leaving most of his informants dead, and get the DEA agent exiled to the relative backwaters of Seattle, a city soon to be a major drop-off point for de Santiago's empire. Commander Jonathan Ward and the attack sub Spadefish are on one last mission. With the assistance of Bill Beaman and his Navy SEAL team, they are planning a strike that will put de Santiago and his empire out of business. From the old highways of the Incas to the plush haciendas of the drug lords, guerrilla armies are striking out at those who threaten their lucrative trade. Beaman and his SEALs are being stalked, as de Santiago launches a supersub, destination: Seattle.show more
