Thirty years ago the military created a top secret program to assist military personnel and assets from around the world when they're experiencing stress, mental health problems, or other issues at a base in Halifax, Nova Scotia. The people the program helps cannot go thru mainstream military or civilian channels because of the extreme classified nature of their jobs. Enter Dr. Blake Waiter, psychologist, who works for the program and has above top secret level clearance as a result. When a new patient from a research project in the Nevada desert comes to him with a fantastic story and a fear for his life, Blake doesn't know what he's about to get involved with. The psychologist is soon thrust into a roller coaster of events involving impossible, floating balls, an evil entrepreneur, a giant, damaged soldier, and quite possibly the first actual artificial intelligence.
