1896: HMS Rove vanishes in a shocking storm off the African coast. Aboard is a fortune in stolen diamonds...

Sloane's story is strange and when Juan checks it out, he finds that there's much more than just diamonds at stake on the African coast.
A deranged militant and his followers plan to unleash a devastating power that will kill millions and cause worldwide havoc. Soon the Oregon is steaming to the rescue - but some forces are so extreme that even a hero like Juan Cabrillo thinks twice before getting involved...
