Middle Waters
John Clarke, author

Adult; Mystery/Thriller; (Market)

In the deep-sea canyons and trenches of the Earth lie thousands of alien spacecraft and millions of their inhabitants who have to leave soon or risk being stranded forever, or being destroyed. Due to their physiology they have been unable to directly contact humans, but they are adroit at mental contact and remote viewing, when it suits them. They need the help of two humans to assure their safe escape, an experienced diving scientist and a beguiling but eccentric graduate student in Oceanography. The U.S. government is well aware of this deep sea civilization, and is desirous of the weapons the visitors possess. This top secret ambition puts the two unsuspecting divers in the middle of a conflict between powerful military forces and powerful intergalactic forces. Things could get messy. Even worse, jealous friends turn on the unlikely duo and put their lives at extreme risk. Middle Waters combines two separate Native American beliefs and legends with current events. It is a complex thriller with science fact and science fiction mixed in with military action and government intrigue. Also revealed are romantic possibilities that far exceed the capabilities of the mundane, everyday world. The protagonist eventually realizes that everything he has held dear is wrong, in one way or another. At the same time he discovers a reality that is the greatest blessing that man can receive.
