An ancient bomber conceals a devastating secret - a stunning Covert-One thriller from the master storyteller.

On a desolate island deep within the Arctic, a scientific expedition photographs the wreckage of a bomber. It seems to be a relic from the Cold War - but a handful of insiders know that it is a Soviet Air Force biological warfare platform, still armed with weaponised anthrax.
