Overview

Did the CIA murder JFK? Or did it and the KGB simply stand aside while Castro did? Are all groups still trying to hide the truth?
If not, why are all these old retired spooks still trying to hide their bloody footprints?

A yacht delivery crew is accosted in the Bahamas by spooks looking for something hidden aboard their boat. Then a strange rescued woman and foreign operatives endanger them further. Superior seamanship gets the boat to safety in Miami, but safety for the boat is not safety for the crew...for they know too much.
