When the Dept of the Navy allows Peter Williams to board a locked down and classified World War II submarine, Peter and his team discover that this story goes deeper than anyone ever imagined. Once on board, they become trapped by the haunted boat itself. The boat comes to life, and into a pitched battle in 1943 with a German U-boat and a US NAVY Destroyer.
With the fate of Peter, his crew, the USS LIONFISH, and the outcome of World War II hanging in the balance, Peter must make a decision that could potentially change the world forever.
