"In an unknown country, I think it's better to travel light."


The freighter 'Kingston' is sunk in mid-Atlantic by "flying fish" missiles and an underwater cameraman dies in mysterious circumstances. Then Deep Probe 87 reports a build-up of UFOs in Area NML 12, 4 hours from Earth, and Straker discovers that the Aliens plan to bypass the SHADO defences with an elaborate deception.
