May 2008: The potential military application of a new intelligence-enhancing drug is explored in this tale of an experiment run out of control, rising political tension between the Eastern and Western worlds, and a seeming solution to the global energy crisis. An adventure set truly out of this world leads to a frantic search amongst ancient ruins in order to save the peoples of Earth from the forces of tyranny and ultimate annihilation... Captain Dawn DeFaller, RN, DSO, is to head a NATO convoy protection exercise in the North Atlantic Ocean involving British warships, and also a number of merchant ships from several countries.

But the intellectually enhanced Hunt proves elusive and soon sets his sights on higher goals which involve initially revealing a solution to the global energy crisis but ultimately lie beyond the constraints of planet Earth. Dawn finds herself duty-bound to proceed on a mission unlike any that she has ever undertaken before. A mission even more daring than her previous foray into the revolutionary period of 18th century north America. The place and time where she met her husband, Captain Matthew Revere of the American Continental Navy, as part of the experiment that evolved from the highly classified van der Meer Dossier.On arrival at the terminal itself, the contrast with the very modern and highly efficient Changi Airport in Singapore could ... the apron area, which appeared by all accounts, judging by its very badly peeling paint and general period appearance, anbsp;...
