In October 1943, A U.S. destroyer vanished all of a sudden as it sailed out of Philadelphia. This was supposedly the result of a Navy experiment with electromagnetic radiation. Then, reports came that the story was a hoax and it never happened for real. However, our crew and Juan aren’t convinced. They know that something is up and that something might hold the fate of the country.
Soon, there is talk of an auction with a new weapon. It is reported to be very dangerous to American interests. Rumors link this weapon to the inventions of the great Nikola Tesla. He was working with the Navy when he died in 1943. Could it be possible that he was responsible for the experiment? Could his notes be in the possession of the enemies? Cabrillo races to find the answers. He doesn’t know much more is going on than meets in the eye in this case.
There is plenty of adventure and action as we have come to expect from the series along with the semi-history lesson. The book follows the same formula that the old ones follow; still, it proves to be a successful one.
