In 1941, when Germany invades Greece,a Greek scientist makes a discovery so important it is called the ultimate weapon.
He escapes to the relative safety of the
monastic territory of Mount Athos.
Nazi Germany uncovers the existence
of this weapon and in 1944 they track
down both the weapon and its inventor.
On orders from Adolf Hitler himself,
a U-boat is sent to bring back the secret to Berlin. The mission fails and the weapon lays forgotten.
Over sixty years later, the CIA obtain
details from a KBG archive making
reference to the weapon, and an immediate
search begins to identify and obtain it for
the USA. David Osborne pensioned off from
British Military intelligence having been
diagnosed with terminal cancer, unknowingly
stumbles across the secret while sailing in the
Northern Aegean, as other intelligence agencies
also learn of the existence of the weapon,
and the race for its possession begins.
