|Chaser Jones, a journalist for a large American newspaper, is as much
a newsman as Indiana Jones is an archeologist. Part bloodhound, investigative
journalist, war correspondent and adventurer, Chaser always winds up
in the middle of the action, putting his life on the line to grab the
'scoop' before it grabs him. This time, on the trail of a hot story,
Chaser arrives right in the middle of the communist USSR at the height
of the Cold War. While there, he comes across a plot to sabotage the
Chernobyl nuclear power plant, but soon discovers that Chernobyl is
just the beginning. He's on the trail of a far-reaching conspiracy,
which might be too much for one journalist to handle. During his dangerous
adventures, Chaser has to draw on all his abilities and experience gained
during previous assignments. Among them, stealth plays a leading role:
Chaser is able to move quietly and furtively, he can slip behind enemies
unnoticed, ducks for cover behind various objects, hides in the shadows.
He knows how to disable alarms, pick locks or confound security cameras.
When he gets into a tight spot he's good with his gun, though he'd much
rather try avoiding and outsmarting the enemy than come face to face
with them. Chaser's investigations take him to places such as Chernobyl
and Baikonur, where he must summon all his strength, not just to get
his scoop, but merely to survive.
