A woman radar-intercept officer (RIO) disappears at night from an aircraft carrier in the Adriatic Sea. Two lawyers in the JAG Corps of the US Navy, Lt. Harm Rabb and Lt. Caitlin "Kate" Pike, investigate. Two Italian fishermen discover the body of the missing person. Despite resentment and resistance from several sources, Harm and Kate sort through the evidence, and they find the answers. Harm, a former Naval aviator, gets a ride in the back seat in combat aboard an F-14 Tomcat, of the type which he previously flew; while doing so, after the bird sustains damage, and the pilot loses consciousness, Harm flies back to the carrier and makes a successful landing at night.
