A Navy lieutenant drowns during night maneuvers at sea; he was a Naval aviator temporarily assigned to a Seal team; he was also the son of a woman senator, who expresses much anger, criticism, and frustration toward the Navy. Harm and Meg investigate; the admiral and the senator join them at Roosevelt Roads in Puerto Rico. At first they meet stonewalling and misrepresentation; however, persistence and determination eventually produce the right answers, which lead to a surprising conclusion. Harm twice uses his flying skills. Written by DocRushing
