The story of the frantic hunt before eight massive murderous detonations and the story of life for one Northern California family after their world is changed forever. After twenty years of being buried in the ground, four black-market Cold War Russian-built UR-100N ICBM warheads turn up missing from a rose garden in Kazanluk, Bulgaria. It is only a matter of time before the world will be changed forever and millions of innocents will die. John Mullens, a young, idealistic, and edgy Central Intelligence Agency operator will try in vain to stop those responsible for stealing the missing nuclear warheads. Wittingly, he recruits the help of a key Bulgarian black marketer, Mr. Ivanof, an arrogant deadly boozer who, unbeknownst to Mullens, is the same man who stole the nuclear weapons from a Cold War naval base in Sofia, Bulgaria, in 1991. Both men try desperately to hunt down the weapons before it is all too late.
