An Inspector Luke Bradley mystery
"A sharp, fast, exciting yarn, vivid with a refreshingly realistic patriotism...." — San Francisco Chronicle
"An unusually well-plotted and well-written story with the suspects limited to the members of a small group. Action, suspense and plenty of thrills from start right down to finish...." — New York Times
Luke Bradley is no stranger to murder, but the stakes have never been higher—the defense of American lives from Japanese forces.
The action begins when screenwriter Chris Wells travels from the west coast to a naval repair base on a barren island. Amid angry rumors and suspicion, Bradley and Wells race to unmask a saboteur before the civilian laborers turn upon each other.
