In May 2002, a nuclear torpedo attack occurs on the Nimitz-class aircraft carrier USS Thomas Jefferson, destroying it. A search commences for the attacking submarine, a Cold War-era Kilo-class submarine. The hunt for the Kilo results in the sinking of the Ayatollah of Iran's submarines, an underwater transit through the Bosporus, and an underwater battle near the Falklands. Commander Ben Adnam is a slick commander who eludes capture. He skillfully evades Bill Baldrige and the U.S. Navy.
