An Israeli warplane carrying a nuclear bomb is shot down, its lethal cargo buried somewhere beneath the Golan heights for nearly three decades until a rightwing demagogue, Dressler, acquires the recovered bomb and removes its plutonium to make a far more deadly weapon. This is exploded during a Super Bowl in Baltimore and CIA agent Jack Ryan and his partner John Clark set out to track down Dressler.
