Thin Air by George E. Simpson and Neal R. Burger
I don't know how many, if any of you, remember this book from the early Eighties, but it's a terrific little sf thriller that I still remember and still own in paperback. I just stumbled across it as a newly released ebook on Kindle by one of the authors and grabbed it. I have a feeling I'm not the only one with fond memories of this. Amazon link.
"It's a mystery that dates back to World War II--what happened to the USS Sturman and its crew. For Naval Investigator Nicholas Hammond, the search will challenge him…and the answers will, like bodies floating on the ocean, chill him.
It begins with a man waking, screaming. A series of memories have shaken him, "something to do with the Navy." For another man, his child-like drawings of men holding hands in frightened unity shatter his sanity. What both men share is fear.
Enter Hammond, cocksure and independent, assigned to find the link between these incidents and the disappearance of the Sturman. Was it a last act of war from a defeated enemy, or was it something more sinister…an experiment gone wrong from within?
Fast-paced, intricately plotted, THIN AIR is a thriller that defies time."

As chance would have it... over on the Freebies forum, member Fbone just posted a Neal Burger collaboration you might be interested in:
Free in the USA for now, at least.

Thanks for that, KentE. I'm planning to read Fair Warning .

Thanks for posting, Gary and KentE.
Three of their other books are available at Amazon also. It may be worthwhile watching Fictionwise for these, as they are published by Ereads and FW still sells them. Might get a good deal with a coupon. That said, I am getting Blackbone now as it looks really good.
