In 1941 a Chesapeake town built a war boat to attack a U-Boat marauding its shore.
Was its sinking the work of a traitor? Were all the dead volunteers betrayed to the Nazi boats?
Now, a grandson enters the town’s dark hidden world for the truth. John Thornton and his archeologist pal, Dr. Clarissa Pebbles, risk their lives to uncover the secret Nazi plan that could have changed America forever. Thornton’s personal goals undergo radical change as he finds himself caring more for others, far more than he did as a cutthroat business success.
