After the British military lose an officer to Taliban insurgents in Afghanistan, a desperate race begins to find his killers. Little do the assailants know that the precious information they have stolen could bring down the entire network of Western intelligence in the Mid-East. But then one of them is captured by U. S. troops and flown to the States for interrogation. And so begins a nail-biting, claustrophobic, and explosive thriller that will ultimately lead British operative John Stratton to the Styx penitentiary, America’s undersea prison. How do you break in to a jail below the ocean? Can Stratton get the information back without the government discovering him? And is everyone in the prison really who they seem to be?

"When elite SBS operative John Stratton is given orders to retrieve a missing computer chip, he doesn't initially realise what he is getting himself into." "But he soon discovers that this mission could be his most dangerous yet. The chip is embedded beneath the skin of a fearless Taliban terrorist - who has been captured by the American military and placed inside the notorious Styx penitentiary." "And the Styx is no ordinary prison. It is located 300 feet beneath the sea - more secure than either Guantanamo or Alcatraz. Even if a prisoner did manage to break free, the pressure of water as he rose to the surface would make his head explode." "With murderous convicts, crooked guards and a kamikaze terrorist to contend with, it seems that Stratton may have signed his own death warrant."--BOOK JACKET.
