Description from the packaging.

A Techno-Thriller From the Case Files of Max Remington.

In the 1990s our national nightmares are haunted by wild-eyed political extremists, greedy and ruthless drug lords, and lunatic military dictators. For too long we have felt powerless to stop them.

But now, award-winning game designer Sid Meier takes us around the globe with super-spy Max Remington to challenge these threats and neutralize their shadowy schemes of terrorism, smuggling and extortion.

A seasoned veteran of modern, hi-tech undercover operations, Remington always obeys the two main rules of Covert Action: 1. Use your intelligence. 2. If Rule one fails, use your other weapons.

Intelligence: Recognize Faces, Break Codes, Unravel Plots and Sub-plots to Determine How Sub-plots Fit Together in the Larger Scheme, Decide Which Leads to Follow, Which to Ignore.

Weapons: Guns, Fragmentation Grenades, Stun Grenades, Remote-Control Bombs, Tear Gas.

World Travel: 3 Continents, 50 Cities.

Variety: Work for CIA, Mossad (Israeli), M15 (British), Unlimited Number of Cases to Solve.

Realism: Crucial Decisions International Agents Face Every Day, Cases Based on Today's Headlines.
