She washed ashore in the night, unconscious. When she awoke at daybreak, the only names she knew were Sol, the sun, and God. Then she added Elaine, a name she saw on a dead man’s tattoo…Suffering from a fractured skull, she searched by sight the full circle of her surroundings, and as far as she could tell, she was on a deserted island, lying directly beneath the shadow of death.

Since the 9-11-01 terrorist destruction of the World Trade Center towers in New York, the Coast Guard has been given greater authority to board ships in the name of national security.

Elaine lay unconscious on the beach at daybreak.

She didn’t hear the gulls squealing or the waves crashing. And she didn’t see the first piercing rays of the sun.

She had washed ashore in the night, lying almost lifeless upon a splintered timber of some kind, perhaps a piece of wreckage from a boat or private yacht on which she went to sea.
