Appalled at his family's extravagant lifestyle, Crown Prince Nasir vows to end their careless and destructive rule, and sets in motion a top-secret operation to destroy the Saudi oil industry and bankrupt the monarchy.
Nasir turns to France with their Hunter Killer guided missile submarines, which can inflict devastating damage on the massive oil installations on the shores of the Red Sea and the Persian Gulf.
Under the command of the mysterious and lethally effective Col. Jacques Gamoudi, nicknamed Le Chasseur, or "The Hunter", the ferocious battle for the desert kingdom begins. As the world's oil markets plunge into chaos, Admiral Arnold Morgan and Lt. Cdr. Jimmy Ramshawe are summoned to the White House to discover that Gamoudi has been joined by none other than Morgan's archenemy, Hamas General Ravi Rashood, in the battle for the capital city of Riyadh.
