The first few bodies didn't attract that much attention. A young girl camping oceanside with her parents is ravaged by an invisible killer. A ghost ship with a crew of dead men is found adrift off the coast of British Columbia. Two divers fishing for abalone die gruesome deaths, setting their boat aflame in an attempt to escape...something.
But when a noted marine biologist drops dead in his bathroom shortly after documenting a group of disease-ravaged sea lions, oceanographer Brock Garner is called in to piece it all together before the body count mounts higher. As the unknown killer moves stealthily toward Seattle, Washington, Garner and a hastily assembled team begin their hunt. Searching the ocean, they find that the decaying bodies of new victims rising to the surface begin to shed light on a deadly organism. But someone on Brock's team would prefer that the full answer remain undiscovered, even if thousands, maybe millions, more must die.
