(From the publisher):
Sea Base is the latest development in naval technology. More than eighty acres long, the artificial island is a self-contained citadel carried atop eight ships and is able to dispatch aircraft and submarines at a moment's notice - giving America mastery over the world's oceans.
American Kiang Zheng learns where his true loyalties lie when he accompanies his parents to his ancestral land of China. And, employed as an engineer with Sea Base, he is strategically positioned to serve the People's Republic.
Richard Zeichner is an agent of the Naval Criminal Investigative Service assigned to Sea Base on its beta-test voyage. But instead of observing the proceedings, his true mission is to uncover the identity of a saboteur who will stop at nothing to send the floating fortress to the bottom of the sea...
