Neil Burnside is the Director of Operations for the British Secret Service, the SIS. His special operations unit is made up of three agents, known as Sandbaggers, who specialize in covert operations. He's approached by the head of the Norwegian secret service who needs assistance in recovering the crew of a spy plane that has gone down inside Russia. He's dead set against it, but the Foreign Office has its own interests and Burnside is ordered to mount an operation. Unfortunately, the Norwegians are playing their own games and the lives of the agents are put in danger.
Did You Know?
Hmm. Well, we'll say we're on a nature ramble. Or a lunatics' outing. They'd have to believe that, wouldn't they.
Right. Sandbagger One to see me on completion of briefing, please.
Now you're goin'a have your unmentionables torn off.
Good. I'm just in the mood for a punch-up.
