After sinking a South African Navy frigate in an epic gun battle in the Mozambican Channel, Code Name Phoenix, Geoffrey Foxtrot, Egg Breaker Ground Commander, former South African Special Forces legend, is heading down south with his fellow Egg Breakers intending to ambush a squadron of naval fast attack craft that is coming north to investigate the sinking of the frigate.
To get them close enough and inside gun range, he “abandons” the Q-ship, the EBS Orlando, on a deserted beach, a maskirovka designed to bring the fast attack craft towards the ambush site.
For political reasons, he must cross the border into South Africa and spring a naval ambush from northern Zululand and thus taking the chance of meeting with superior South African ground forces, a fight he cannot possibly win. To make matters worse, a South African Denel Rooivalk is escorting the naval vessels and constitutes a major threat, she must be shot down quickly or she will destroy him and his men.
Meanwhile, his wife, Angelique Dawson-Foxtrot, the former South African Secret Service Counter-Terrorism Head, is injured and dying from wounds received during a previous ambush, he needs to dig deep to accomplish his mission.
The ambush takes place but complications erupt and the situation is grim.
