Russell is a CIA agent and Howell a retired SAS officer who frequently gets recalled to work for the British Secret Service.

When a French laboratory is blown up it is believed the DNA computer is destroyed along with its creator, Professor Emile Chambord. It soon becomes evident that the computer is in the hands of a very dangerous organisation when the communications systems of the United States becomes comprised.
