Suddenly the US east coast is hit by a type of natural disaster formerly reserved, except after a major earthquake, for the Pacific and Indian ocean rims: tidal waves of the destructive tsunami type. Scientist and fiction author John McAdams attends a national emergency conference which concludes the phenomenon must be man-made, quite possibly abusing the findings of John's secret former Sea Lion project, but who wants to and has the means? Indeed John soon finds himself set-up for a murder and chased. Major destructions mean major contracts for construction and coastal defenses, so building tycoons like Victor Bannister certainly have a considerable interest...

When Stanley Schiff, the scientist who programmed the explosives to cause the tidal waves, is programming the computers to launch waves to destroy Boston, he stares at a radar screen with Boston Harbor, however the image shown does not include Cape Cod or any land forms beyond the ship channel at Barnstable.
