It's October 1945 in the SF Bay Area. World War 2 is over. American boys who fought in the Pacific theater are coming home. Doctor James T. Palmer, an esteemed physicist who worked on the Manhattan Project, the government project that developed the atomic bomb that was dropped on Hiroshima Japan two months earlier, mysteriously disappears. Did his work on the Manhattan Project have anything to do with his disappearance? Did he sell his research to the highest bidder? The beginning of the Cold War between the United States and Russia has started. Russia needs atomic weapons. It's up to his son, JT and one very smart chocolate Labrador retriever named Mickey, to find out what happened. JT has issues of his own, having just returned stateside from a VA hospital. During the war he served as Military Police aboard the ill-fated USS Indianapolis, which was sunk in the Pacific by a Japanese submarine near the end of the war. Stranded in the Pacific Ocean the survivors of the Indianapolis suffered through the worst shark attacks (for five days) in recorded history. Recovered from a life-threatening injury, but still suffering from the trauma of his ordeal, JT, with Mickey's help, struggles to uncover what happened to his father.
