What starts out as a simple case of economic espionage for Fritz and Sly Gantlet turns into a deadly game. Forced into an uneasy alliance with the CIA, the five Gantlet brothers must help stop a rogue Russian general from finding and activating a series of nuclear devices hidden in suitcases at "dead drop" sites throughout the United States. Worse still, behind the plot is the Gantlet's most fearsome foe, a former East German border guard who is bent on revenge against the brothers. For Fritz, Sly, Matthias, Mitz and Otto this is one game that they cannot afford to lose--because every life in the Western world is a pawn.
This actual event is the premise that inspired The Nuclear Suitcase.
As if this weren't enough I threw in a group of musicians who escaped communist Germany over the Berlin wall, and mixed with liberal doses of booming guns and wailing electric guitars.
The Nuclear Suitcase
January 24th, 2000 a former Soviet colonel and GRU operative named as Stanislav Lunev testified in front of a United States congressional hearing that suitcase-sized nuclear devices were planted at ‘deaddrop’ sites in the United States in case of a future war.
