The skipper of an obsolete destroyer is at first skeptical about the strange sightings and unexplained events off the coast of Florida. The East-Bloc threat has passed--and others don't have the technical capabilities to challenge the U.S.--or do they? The answer lies in the Goldsborough's horrific confrontation with the unseen intruders in this fast-paced, suspenseful post-Cold War naval thriller.
