He still lives in the area. and one night while driving home close to campus, he gets the urge to reminisce by driving over to the Ark, the nickname for the old gym where he loved to watch basketball games as a student. Strangely, he senses the car is almost on autopilot, guiding him there. He's able to get inside where he discovers a basketball team of ghosts from the school who almost won the Championship against a much larger school forty years before. He realizes these are no ordinary ghosts. Their older selves are still alive in the present, and John has met all of them over the years. In effect, in this time warp, John knows more about the ghosts' lives than they do.
John and the ghosts realize he must be there for a purpose, and he decides to find out why the ghosts are stuck in time, replaying the team they lost to over and over and over.
While seeking to unravel this mystery at the Ark, John realizes redemption for the ghosts, as well as himself, depends on the actions he must help arrange with others who aren't privy to his "real" motives.
Readers who enjoyed W.R. Kinsella's "Shoeless Joe," or its movie adaptation, "Field of Dreams" will appreciate Ark's different slant, served slightly chilled, sprinkled with humor and a twist at the end.
