Nestled between a dozen longshoremen working on Dock B, Junior Patrone was the only one that heard the distant blast coming from the ocean. A few minutes past four on a humid summer morning in 1946, an unmarked German U-boat awaits patiently in oil slick waters two miles off the coast of New York City. Within the hour, the first of three merchant ships carrying supplies overseas will be sent to a watery grave; her mechanical guts ripped out by a single torpedo ingested by her hull.

During a secret meeting (Sub-Rosa) in Berlin, several irrational plans are cast aside until a young zealous Gestapo officer convinces a defeated Third Reich that his plan is infallible. Shortly after Germany surrender, Russian sources advise US intelligence that a plan which had been put into play shortly before the end of the war targeting a specific location on the Eastern Seaboard was imminent. At the time the United States lacked the electronic technology of modern day tracking devices. There was however, an isolated radar installation in its infancy atop a mountainous plateau overlooking the Hudson Valley, sixty five miles north of New York City. Once operational, the installations purpose was to warn against possible air strikes. After infiltrating an alpine colony in the Catskills, the Nazi mastermind makes contact with a group of German-Americans sympathizers obsessed with the idea of vindicating the Vaterland. Thirty years before 911, a plan was conceived involving a single WMD. If successful, it would have show the world how vulnerable the United States was. Concealed from the rest of the world for three decades, entrenched within the governing body of the Port of New York, the mastermind behind an unknown conspiracy is resurrected along with several resettled co-conspirators, deep-rooted within a small town police department in Westchester County, New York. After arresting an organized crime member in the 1970's, an arrogant hard-nosed controversial small town beat cop stumbles into a hidden world of past gun-runners, modern day corruption, and murder.
