Saudi Arabia, the world's leading producer of oil, is on the brink
of revolution. Inside the opulent palaces and lavish mansions, the
royal family is ransacking the country's dwindling coffers while the
desert kingdom seethes with unrest. Appalled at his family's
extravagant lifestyle, Crown Prince Nasir vows to end the careless
and destructive rule, and sets in motion a top-secret operation to
destroy the Saudi oil industry and bankrupt the monarch. To do so,
he must enlist the help of an ally, a naval power willing to help in
return for a share of the wealth.
