To thwart this blackmail scheme aimed at maligning the Secretary of State, the spymaster has a two-day window to find the blackmailer. If the blackmailer doesn't receive his ransom, he will torpedo a luxury cruise liner in the Pacific Ocean. Prior to this meeting, the spymaster received covert information about a missing Russian sub. With a race against time, the spymaster assigns Special Agent Ensign Nick McMasters for this intricate assignment. McMasters locates the blackmailer at a jazz festival in Mexico. The trick is to subdue the blackmailer with specially made state of the art newly developed mind-controlling lenses.
