An American space shuttle, damaged and adrift, is within minutes of being destroyed and the crew killed. Suddenly, they are approached by a mysterious, glass-nosed submarine; seaweed, barnacles and all. The submarine is the Argo, commanded by Captain Jacob Brinn. And, he is offering to save the lives of the shuttle’s crew.

Two L.A.Times' reporters investigating the miraculous rescue are lured into the mad scheme of Captain Brinn. Boarding his fabulous research vessel, the Argo, they're introduced to the his elite hand-picked crew of Argonauts. There Brinn reveals his secrets of anti-gravity, artificial gravity, plasma weapons, and perpetual motion. The wonders that are promised the world are beyond imagination.

The only problem is these same promises will cause a socio-economic and political upheaval of apocalyptic scale. Billions may die. The nations of the world unite against the threat of Captain Brinn and his Argonauts.

And so, the battle lines are drawn. From the bottom of the ocean to the surface of the moon, the world will learn that there is no stopping the Captain, and no stopping the Argo.

About the Author

You might say that my beginnings were fairly common. Born and raised in central Oklahoma. Grew up hunting and fishing. Earned my spending money as a kid delivering papers, mowing yards, hauling hay, chasing stray cattle out of the brush, mortician's assistant, that sort of thing.

I learned to love reading the works of Verne, Wells, Asimov, and Heinlein. By the age of fifteen I'd determined that I wanted to be a writer.

I’m a former career U.S. Army Counterintelligence Agent, a disabled combat vet and divorced father of two.

When I left the service, I decided to fulfill that childhood dream and started writing science fiction novels. And with each book, each storyline, I’ve been able to go further and further "out there" challenging people to rethink everything they thought they knew about: first technology and the world, and now God, the Universe, and the very meaning of what it means to be human itself.
