YOU are Jason Malone, free-lance agent for the US government. Your latest assignment: infiltrate Beirut, Lebanon, to find David Saxon, kidnapped compatriot, before the information he acquired for peace-keeping reasons is coerced out of him and used to set off the Middle Eastern powder keg.
To get Saxon out, you must make snap decisions under pressure and use the skills you have acquired in years of undercover work--firing a gun with uncanny accuracy, subduing your enemies in hand-to-hand combat when necessary, throwing a grenade or bomb to precisely the place it needs to go, or sneaking into areas under such tight security that legitimate personnel have a tough time getting in. The challenge is yours.
