“Two Loves Lost” left Delbert Pillage in a wheelchair, paralyzed from the waist down. How does a jet fighter test pilot deal with being grounded, now half a man in search of a new life? You will be embroiled in Delbert and Sylvia’s emotional struggle to rescue a teenage drug addict which in turn leads to a campaign against drug running in Pacific Northwest waters during the 1960’s.
Delbert designs and builds a novel, silent flying boat to hunt down smugglers only to be caught in conflict with them, a deadly struggle between morality and disturbing immorality.
