About the Book

For sixteen long months, the U.S. Navy was helpless! Admiral Nathan Summerfield and his entire Project Houdini exploration team had gone into the Bermuda Triangle and never came out. All contact had been broken. The navy could find no way to recover them. Project Houdini had won the battle but had lost their war against the unknown. Or had they? More dead than alive, journalist Alan Maxwell was extracted from icy Atlantic waters. Only a humble Mae West jacket had sustained this shattered sole survivor in testament of the incredible truth. A strange and dangerous truth that certain forces within the navy tried again and again to suppress.

In an effort to keep the lid on former naval officer Alan Maxwell’s account of the terrible secret that the Project Houdini team had discovered, the project’s new director, egocentric Admiral Scott, and his henchman, Captain Sadowski, had the reporter subjected to a high-tech brainwashing technique. They then, in order to maintain anonymity, had him moved from one hospital to another. Only newspaper editor Harry Konenberg’s stubborn belief in his veteran reporter defied the odds and kept this remarkable story from being systematically sucked into an all-consuming national security vacuum.
