Spring 1858, Nantucket Island. Just outside of the harbor, a ship is approaching. She is the Elizabeth James, a trading vessel, home to Jeptha Dawes after two years in the South Sea Islands. But the Elizabeth James will not be enjoying the welcoming lights of Nantucket Town this night, because the cargo carried by the Yankee clipper ship is not just silks and spices. It's something that the ship's dying captain has sworn must never be allowed to set foot in the town of his birth. It is a cargo of pure evil.... Summer 1968, Cape Cod. Mick and Bridget ride on a 650 cc BSA motorcycle as it roars them over the Bourne Bridge spanning the Cape Cod Canal. They don't care about everyday life. They're on vacation, heading for a well-deserved rest, far away from city cares and hassles. They've picked out a quiet little town halfway up the Cape Cod peninsula. There, they plan to relax in a quaint white clapboard inn, surrounded by beach plums and primroses, encircled by nothing but sand, sea, and each other. Peace, quiet, and safety. Or so they think. What they don't know is that they're riding smack dab into the middle of trouble.... And something that's been waiting...for 110 years.

Former Sergeant Michael Prescott McCarthy…Mick, has come a long way in two years. He’s left behind his squad, the jungles of Vietnam and his position as Sergeant to return to Boston. He wants to put everything behind him--the war, the army, and most of all the dark, mysterious " special opps." mission.
The only problem is that he can't forget; someone won't let him. Mick may have settled into Cambridge's Harvard Square, but the nightmare of Vietnam lingers within him.
He feels his life unraveling as he stumbles down the path that leads to folk music clubs in Cambridge and secret government labs at M.I.T. His girlfriend begins to doubt him, his father winds up in the hospital and Mick continues to find himself in situations he can't explain.
Mick begins to realize that things aren't always what they seem, there may be more to the past than he can recall and he's in a race against time to figure out what really happened in Vietnam. As much as he'd like to forget the past, Mick must remember. His life depends on it.
