Should the US Navy manage to recover the submarine, the intelligence held within could tip the scales of the Cold War in their favor. However, strange data readings are being recorded from the ocean's floor—readings that don't correlate with any known phenomena on Earth.
Holt Cook, a former underwater explosives expert, is recruited to join the salvage mission and lead the recovery effort for the US Navy. Joining him is Dawn Myers, a professor of exobiology and expert on the extraterrestrial.
Together they attempt to unravel the mysterious demise of The Red Hammer, but will they be ready for the extraordinary encounter that awaits them lying two miles beneath the surface of the ocean?
Inspired by a true event, The Glomar Encounter is an exciting science fiction adventure about the most audacious salvage operation in the CIA's history.
