Logline

Captain Curran, warrior, adventurer, philosopher and orphan from Philadelphia, thought his botched search for an energy weapon in Panama and the Caribbean was strange enough (more fishing, surfing, sailing adventure than mission), but now someone's wife is dead, his best friend is missing and the whole team is surrounded by evil. You can always count on your friends, comrades and superiors...or can you?
