When aliens invaded the Earth, Colonel Alan Lane expected death and destruction to sweep the planet. He didn't expect them to simply disappear into the ocean. After three weeks, however, all remains quiet except for a few missing boats in pirate-infested waters. Are the pirates up to their old tricks, or is something sinister finally going on?
