In 1947, on a military base absent from any map, a black ops project took place which, even after more than fifty years, is still categorically denied. The best and brightest Allied scientists met with a single purpose in mind: to reverse engineer a crippled UFO, prying the alien technology from within and claiming it for their own. In time, secrets pulled from the extraterrestrial craft send close friends Ed Reilly and Gil Randolph on a roller coaster ride that rushes from the desolate Nevada desert to a closely guarded industrial complex nestled in the pine forests of northern California. Working at San Diego's North Island Naval Station, he encounters unusual problems with a submarine tracking system manufactured by prime military contractor Randolph & Van Wyck—the core company of Gil Randolph's industrial empire. Soon, information provided by his grandfather launches Charlie on a frantic mission to deflect a deadly attack against US submarines, orchestrated by rogue North Korean military officers. In the meantime, Ed faces his own dilemma: finding a way to send Charlie data crucial to the success of the mission and staying alive long enough to do it.

This first novel by the co-authors is a hit! It looks like there are 'hooks' built into the story line for a sequel. The story line ties together archeological digs, mini submarine operations, secret airbases, aero-space hi tech firms and the best minds of scientists and engineers from all over the world. It is hard to be critical of anything in the book. If I were, however, it would be the high number of characters, thus exceeding my comfort zone of being able to keep them all seperate. But this dissapates quickly as the reading pace speeds up to keep with the plot intensity.
