Synopsis: Stony Man

Eighty miles outside the nation's capital, the President's covert defense unit has its orders: stop terror at its source. From the cyber wizards at the helm to the commandos on the ground, the warriors of Stony Man are united by an unbreakable bond of honor and courage, where ultimate sacrifice is the price sometimes paid—but never in vain.

Bug Spheres

A NATO special ops aircraft carrying a top-secret prototype goes down near the French-German border. In St. Louis, a rogue scientist unleashes an experimental pathogen on innocent victims. Stony Man targets the disturbing intel and launches an offensive that stretches from Munich to America's heartland. It's a worst-case scenario linking a radical Middle Eastern group with Europe's most sophisticated smugglers, putting stolen tech into enemy hands—along with a killer virus manufactured for mass destruction.
