The theft of a sample of potent radioactive material from the United States, though it happened over two years ago, is now a current concern for the IMF. The theft, engineered by three members of an Eastern European government, turned into a web of double crossings and ended with one of the men murdered in secret by another, who then hid the radioactive material away for his own gain. Intelligence surfaces that the material is about to change hands, something which could alter the global balance of power and the delicate state of the Cold War. Phelps, Paris, Collier, Armitage, and a couple of new IMF recruits go overseas to set in motion an elaborate heist to retrieve the nuclear-weapons-grade material before it falls into even more dangerous hands. But to pull it off, Paris must give the performance of a lifetime, with Phelps as his “interrogator”. If either of them fails to be convincing in their roles, they may not make it home.
