Reluctant arms dealer Mike Keats, working out of Hong Kong for Hungarian born business partner, Joe Rakosi, finds himself entangled in a disguised web of deceit, lies and corruption, when he is offered a deal to buy arms for Hungarian interests.
The deal takes him to Mozambique and Vietnam where he is leading a team to bring up a gold cache sunk in wartime Vietnam. To his shock the "gold story " turns out to be a wider Russian plot to use a bio-weapon against the Mujahedeen in Afganistan, by a corrupt criminal clique involving Russian big-shots and an equally corrupt Vietnam crooked official. Mike has to rush against time to save the Mujahedeen before the weapon is unwittingly unleashed in their midst.
The plot explodes in a furious twist when it turns out that the bio-weapon was actually actually made in the US for use against the Vietnamese army during the war. Time is against Mike as he and some CIA agents have to intercept the weapon before it is used by the Russians.
