When a female Russian double-agent discovers information on "Red Mercury" - a secret substance that can be used as a nuclear accelerant - the player is hand-picked by the National Security Agency (NSA) to pursue the Red Mercury before it is used to build backpack nuclear devices and sold to terrorist organizations.
