From the Publisher: 1968. . .In the murky waters of the Mediterranean, an Israeli submarine vanishes without a trace, burying its top secret cargo. 1988. . . on the monitor of a U.S. research ship, the eerie vision of a hideously shredded skin diver's suit and the image of a star of David appear. . . miles beneath the sea. And across the world, a chilling conspiracy begins. . . Few but U.S. Naval Lieutenant Edna J. Haddix and retired Navy officer Wendell Trent know the real reason the Fanning II is anchored off the coast of Crete. But when their unmanned probe penetrates the hull of the sunken submarine Dakar, Haddix and Trent find themselves on the explosive edge of a political time bomb code-named. . . Bright Shark. It was a mission so daring, so deadly and unthinkable that its exposure could forever after the balance of world power. But a plan had already been set in motion to keep the silence. And now it is only a matter of days, hours, minutes. . .before an undersea weapon is deployed that will bury a a shocking secret for all time. . .at cost of certain global disaster. . .
