On January 21, 1968 a B-52 Boeing Stratofortress, carrying four 1.1 megaton H-Bombs, caught fire and crashed in the Arctic Circle near Thule, Greenland. The Strategic Air Command's (SAC) Arctic Circle route was an airborne alert operation, referred to by the pilots of these large bombers as the Chrome Dome, and was a 24-hour round-the-clock strategic undertaking. Carrying four 1.1 megaton H-Bombs, the B-52's were ready on a moment's notice to wage all-out warfare on an enemy that dare provoke an attack. The official response by the United States was that all four H-bombs were destroyed on impact but theorist have long maintained that one of the bombs survived the crash and lies on the seabed off Greenland near Thule airbase. 34 years later, the lost bomb that America has always denied existed, has been found - snagged by a fisherman's net - setting off alarms deep in the bowels of the most fortified structure known to mankind - the CIA. Although the United States is eager to avoid a crisis in relations with its NATO ally Denmark there is more at stake than NATO relations: America is secretly mining raw plutonium in the area and conducting its most clandestine operation in the history of the United States - National Missile Defense. In a remarkable depiction of clandestine adventure, North Star Bay weaves men, submarines, individual acts of heroism, moments of tragedy and unimaginable endurance into an intricate spellbinding story.

    " Great yarn. Enjoyed the premise and plotline. There were a few editing errors that threw me (the P3 is not a "recognizance" aircraft), but the story was good. "
