When a B-3 Stealth Bomber crashes in the Utah desert during a top-secret test run, the military quickly moves in to retrieve its two "broken arrows." But the situation spins wildly out of control after one of the pilots reveals the crash to be part of an incredible nuclear extortion plot. 

Broken arrow is a military term for a nuclear warhead that has been stolen — and villainous Air Force pilot Vic Deakins has done just that. In fact, he's pilfered TWO bombs, in an effort to extract a huge amount of cash from the government in exchange for their safe return.

However, there's a fly in the ambitious ointment: Riley Hale, Vic's former co-pilot, whom Vic thought he had killed when he robbed the bombs. Helping Riley is gusty female Park Ranger Terry Charmichael. Together the duo uses all the artillery, ammo, vehicles, and gumption they can muster, as they risk life and limb to thwart Vic and his vile gang.
