Overview

In July of 2013 a strange black package with the words, SS Beddington, Top Secret, came up in the net of a fishing trawler off Cape Cod. Because of its classification the captain of the trawler, Peter Broderick, does not open it, but notifies the Navy under the impression that they'll declassify it and it will belong to him as an artifact taken from the sea. Wrong!The Navy confiscates the package, stating that there is no record of the Beddington being sunk during WW ll. The trail toward the package's origination, sixty-eight years before, is filled with mystery, suspense, foreign intrigue and even cover-up activity dating back to the year 1945, during WW ll.Peter Broderick and marine biologist Janie Sheffield with the help of a Massachusetts Senator and the captain of a deep sea salvage ship, Sean Kelly, attempt to prove the existence of the SS Beddington to the Navy. They also need to determine the content of its top secret cargo that's emitting gamma radiation near the wreck... an ecosystem for marine life. The trail to find out why the Beddington sinking by a German U-boat was a government cover-up starts in Strassfurt, Germany in 1945 where material to build one of Hitler's secret weapons is captured by the U.S. Army. It continues to the port of Avonmouth England where the Beddington is loaded with the captured material and other cargo from Russia...then onboard German U-boat, U-873, in the Gulf of Maine. The story ends in 2013 four-hundred feet down in the Atlantic where the ship, 'that never was', is located and the contents in its hold number four discovered. This initiates an intriguing turn of events. Their shock of what's discovered there gets answered for the reader in Munich, Germany.
