A mysterious caller directs Kitra to join Marc in Switzerland and save his life. As she enters an art gallery where Marc has discovered a dead body, a bomb destroys the entire gallery. The Swiss police immediately accuse Marc of murder and the bombing.
The threat that Iran is shipping nuclear weapons through the Strait of Hormuz has American was ships heading that way to stop the shipment. But no one knows which ships hold the weapons because containers have been moved several times to new vessels. If no weapons travel through the Strait, the US will be embarrassed in front of the entire world.
From time to time phone calls from unknown people direct Marc and Kitra how to proceed. Certain people may or may not be on their side. Who and what can they trust?
Marc finally figures out the real danger and at the last moment directs the destruction of terrorists’ threats. What he learns and does surprises everyone.
Like others in this series, Strait of Hormuz is fiction based on possible real world dangers. A good read.
