Jack Elliott, a divorced, ex-stock broker has sold his landside accommodations and now lives full time on his seventy foot motor yacht. A chance encounter with an alluring woman leads to a weekend trip with friends to the Florida Keys aboard the yacht, with companionship and maybe more, as the primary motivating force.
Unforeseen circumstances forces the crew of the yacht to reformulate their original plans and an exciting, if risky, adventure unfolds before them, even as a powerful U.S. Senator tries his best to foil their objective; the raising of a lost, gold laden WW II Nazi submarine.
The Senator is also after the submarine, but for totally different reasons, and pursues them in his own yacht with an unerring tenacity which soon becomes unnerving. This yacht, more than twice the size of Jack’s boat, has a captain and crew who are more than willing to carry out the Senator’s every command, legal or not.
From the Florida Keys to Ft. Lauderdale, on to Wilmington, NC, Bermuda, and the island of Eleuthera in the Bahamas, the Senator hangs onto their coat tails with a dogged determination.
With the help of many old and new friends, a lot of detective work and unlimited perseverance, the team finally locates the missing submarine and a lot more besides.
Now the only thing left to accomplish is to make sure that the Senator has been effectively neutralized from interfering.

Jack Elliott, a divorced, ex-stock broker has sold his landside accommodations and now lives full time on his seventy foot motor yacht. Accompanied by his fiancée, Shannon, a new adventure unfolds before them with their exploration of the island of Tortola in the British Virgin Islands in the Caribbean.
Unfortunately, tragedy strikes both them and their best friends, Sean and Katie, prior to the start of the voyage and the timetable is thrown out the window. This gives their arch enemy more time to prepare his insidious trap for the unsuspecting couple. For Jack’s interference in his scheme to hijack the Nazi gold from the Senator, Horst has planned a diabolical revenge on the couple.
What he seeks and is planning to extract from the people who caused his downfall affects not only the people directly involved, but quite a few innocent bystanders as well as the local police force and air/sea rescue units.
Jack, for his part, wants nothing more than to see Horst in an early grave, or at least, prison for the rest of his life for his crimes. For his transgressions against Shannon, Jack swears to find and punish Horst, wherever he may turn up.
Now, the only question is: Who will win and who will die?
