Commander David Shannon is an electronics whiz aboard a black-ops submarine that has just finished testing under south Puget Sound. Waking from a dream, he realizes that some kind of “presence” was with him in his dreams.

Mission complete, Shannon is flown aboard a Navy helicopter to a joyful anniversary with his stunning – and rich – wife at a remote inn on the West Coast of Vancouver Island. An adventure in flying inflatable boats is planned over a romantic dinner.
