When Father Gilbert traded in his detective's badge for an Anglican priest's collar, he never expected he would be pulled into a different kind of mystery - the mystery of the spiritual world. Even attending a conference in a seaside town provides no escape as he has yet another supernatural encounter, this time with a murdered girl who worked at a local massage parlour. Details of the murder lead Father Gilbert to approach the police with clues in common with other cases, bringing him into contact with a detective from his days with Scotland Yard. Meanwhile, a local monastery has been vandalized, with grotesque images and profane graffiti defacing the altar and walls. The head of the monastery, from whom Father Gilbert received spiritual direction a couple of years before, is distressed by the attack, accusing the local sex trade industry of retaliating against his outspoken stand against it. Then, one of the brothers at the monastery is found dead in the local red light district. All evidence points to his having been a regular at a massage parlour - the same one where the murdered girl had worked. Intertwined within this web is a young woman who sees the same apparitions that Father Gilbert thought only he could see, plus an obstinate runaway, a distraught father, and a deep corruption pervading the town. And, whether he likes it or not, Father Gilbert is at the centre of it all.

Dillon and Lane are surprised and pleased when Lane's Uncle Jim offers them the use of his new 40' Chris-Craft for their trip to Catalina Island and honeymoon cruise to San Diego's Mission Bay. Uncle Jim is a Rear Admiral in the U.S. Navy and a father figure to Lane and her sisters. The couple, accompanied by two family members, sails to Catalina Island where the remainder of their small family on both sides joins them for a fun weekend, which culminates in a Saturday evening wedding. After the wedding, Uncle Jim has the newlyweds drop him off on the north side of nearby San Clemente Island on their voyage to Mission Bay. Lane and Dillon reluctantly agree, feeling guilty over his generosity. After delivering Uncle Jim to the island, the newlyweds slowly motor south along the isolated far coast of the island, when suddenly they are both knocked off the deck and into the water. The boat, still in gear, heads ghostly towards Mexican waters. Dillon manages to get them safely to shore, and working together they find food and shelter. After days of being marooned on the island, they find a hysterical young woman calling and searching for her Australian boyfriend. The couple had been camping illegally on the beach with their sailboat anchored nearby. Dillon and Lane soon become embroiled in a web of deceit, international conspiracy, unexplained death, political and naval corruption, kickbacks, and missing persons.
