Computer-based trading has long since replaced the Gold Monetary Standard. But the Geschaft's shipload of Nazi Gold from behind the former Iron Curtain will rule - once they turn back the clock with super-viruses that destroy computer languages. Juggling flight testing of the 21st century Joint Strike Fighter aboard USS Ronald Reagan with undercover missions ashore, the TOPGUN naval aviator is suddenly plunged into an unfamiliar world where wits are his only weapon. With pressure mounting from the CIA's top spymaster, a cunning president, and the admiral aboard the carrier, the future of the civilized world suddenly depends on Deke Mallory's unauthorized actions.
