Overview

The USS Triggerfish--an American World War II submarine--has come home over fifty years after she was presumed lost in the Atlantic. Now her dark gray hulk lies embedded in the sand of a San Diego beach, her conning tower barely above the breaking surf. The submarine is in the wrong ocean, her crew is missing . . . And her half-century absence is a mystery that's about to deepen. For the Triggerfish has returned, but she has not returned alone. Something is inside her -- something unexpected and terrible. To J. D. Stanton, retired Navy captain and historian, falls the task of solving the mystery surrounding a ship possessed. What he is about to encounter will challenge his training, his wits, and his faith. Complicating his mission is a ruthless madman bent on obtaining a secret artifact stolen from the highest levels of the Nazi regime. And poised in the middle is a young woman, a lieutenant who must contend with invisible forces she never knew existed. A Ship Possessed is a story of faith, courage, and determination in the face of unexpected and unknown evil.

Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
In 1943, the submarine USS Triggerfish fails to return to port after a mission. Presumed sunk by enemy ships, the ship and its crew are virtually forgotten until it reappears 50 years later off the San Diego coastline, with no sign of the crew. J.D. Stanton, a retired naval officer and historian, investigates what may have happened to the submarine's crew and finds more startling truths than he'd expected. This first in a new series of mysteries from thriller author Gansky (Tarnished Image, LJ 9/1/98) is a fast-paced and entertaining story mixing military history and elements of Christian dogma with an intriguing use of supernatural elements. Highly recommended. Copyright 1999 Cahners Business Information.
