Description-
  • Jerry Mitchell is on exercises off the coast of Pakistan when his submarine, the USS Michigan, is ordered to a rendezvous off the Iranian coast. Once there, disembarked SEALs---experts in seaborne commando operations---are to extract two Iranian nationals who have sensitive information on Iran’s nuclear weapons program.

    While en route to shore, Michigan’s mini-sub suffers a battery fire, killing one crew member and forcing the survivors---four SEALs and LCDR Mitchell---to scuttle their disabled craft and swim for shore. There they find the two Iranians waiting for them, but their attempts at returning to Michigan are thwarted by heavy Iranian patrol boat activity. When agents of Iran’s secret police, VEVAK, appear, escape seems all but impossible.

    When Mitchell and his men find themselves surrounded by Iranian Revolutionary Guards Corp troops, they create a bold plan to escape by sea. It’s a desperate gamble, but it’s the only way to get proof of the Iranian plot to the U.S. . . . and prevent a devastating new war.

    EPIPHANY


    8 February 2013
    Uranium Enrichment Facility, Natanz, Iran
    Natanz lay only 150 kilometers to the north of his headquarters in Isfahan, so General Moradi had flown up early in the morning with his aide, Captain Hejazi. Moradi's staff had urged him to wait, to not rush up there the same day, that afternoon. "They won't know anything," Colonel Nadali had warned. "They'll bury you in raw data and argue with each other."
    The general had learned to listen to Farzad Nadali, his chief of staff. The colonel's patience and good humor complemented Moradi's own fiery temperament. Nadali had counseled Moradi to wait until the scientists had something to tell him.
    So finally, two days later, they were flying north in an Islamic Revolutionary Guards Corps Mi-17. Instead of jump seats for troops, the Russian-made transport helicopter was fitted for VIP travel, with increased soundproofing, comfortable seating, and fold-down work surfaces. A few hundred meters below them, the landscape was empty and broken, painted in shades of brown and gray, with stony hills rising from the left. It was still winter, and the morning cold did nothing to soften the desert landscape.
    Moradi had made the trip often, and hardly noticed the harsh beauty of the ground below. Instead, he studied a briefing prepared by the scientists and e-mailed to his headquarters that morning. The general was sure they'd been up all night working on it, but he was not sympathetic. A few more sleepless nights might have prevented this disaster.
    Captain Hejazi's voice interrupted his review. "Sir, Natanz is in sight." Moradi understood that his aide was referring to the uranium enrichment facility. They'd spotted the town of Natanz proper five minutes ago. The facility was thirty kilometers farther to the north, surrounded by desert and rocky hills, but not isolated. Its front gate was just south of the Isfahan-Kashan road, a six-lane highway that actually passed through the outer ring of air defenses. A moment later the aide added, "Major Sadi is monitoring our approach."
    Moradi nodded, acknowledging the report. Sadi was in charge of the facility's air defenses, and simply because they were a scheduled flight didn't mean they couldn't be shot out of the sky.
    The enrichment site itself was a rough square, a kilometer and a half on each side. A perimeter fence enclosed the pilot enrichment plant, the gigantic buried centrifuge halls, and the support buildings for those two vital facilities.
    A few hundred meters out, a road paralleled the perimeter, connecting dozens of antiaircraft gun emplacements and watchtowers. Each gun position, a pair of manually aimed 23mm or 35mm autocannons, was ringed with sandbags and sited on an earthen mound to give it a better field of fire.
    Farther out, a second ring bristled with even more guns: larger four-gun batteries of 100mm weapons, radar-directed 35mm batteries, scores of the manually aimed guns, and half a dozen batteries of surface-to-air missiles. Three early warning radars covered Natanz and the surrounding area. It was possible that Natanz was the most heavily defended place in Iran, except, of course, for Tehran itself.
    And a lot of that was Moradi's doing. Since he'd been placed in charge of the nuclear weapons program five years ago, he'd tripled the number of SAM batteries and ordered a second ring of antiaircraft guns placed around Natanz. He'd also handpicked Sadi for his post. The major was inexperienced, but competent, hardworking—and loyal.
    Moradi felt the helicopter descend, and he saved his notes and closed the laptop. As Hejazi packed up the general's computer, the helicopter hovered...
