On July 4, 1946, Navy Captain Edward Lawson attempted to fly an experimental seaplane into the hands of the Soviet Union. The top-secret plane crashed in the Atlantic Ocean before he could succeed with his traitorous action. His body, and the wreck of the plane, were lost at sea. Mike Howard runs a small aviation museum, and, several decades later, his war-hero family still feels the sting of Lawson's unpatriotic actions. When Mike is pressured by Lawson's grandson, Jesse, to mount a search for the traitor's corpse, his first instinct is to refuse. However, his scholarly instincts quickly get drawn into the hunt, and he soon realizes that there is much more to the story. As Mike's corporate sponsors passionately lobby for him to stop stirring up old issues, it is made clear to him just how tangled the web of espionage has become.

Divorced and disaffected journalist Mike has self-published his own mystery drama online, hoping to shift his life on to a new tack.

Unsettling events soon follow: a website hack, a theft, a kidnap attempt. Initially Mike concludes all this has been sparked by an investigative article he once wrote, but gradually he starts to wonder if it could be connected to his search for the girl, or even to his book. Soon Mike's life seems to be in turmoil, especially when the possibility of a new relationship seems to hover in front of him. Fact and fiction collide in this lively and fast-moving story, which along the way highlights some of the trials and pitfalls of the self-publishing process itself.
