Overview

NY Times, USA Today, Wall Street Journal Bestselling Author Bob Mayer

Over four million books sold. Translated into over a dozen languages.

What if the Japanese succeeded in their atomic bomb program in World War II? And what if the legacy of that program has sat in a submarine at the base of the Golden Gate Bridge for all the decades since then?

In Manchuria in 1945 a German U-Boat delivers the dying Reich's processed uranium. As Russian forces close in on the infamous Unit 731 Concentration Camp, the Japanese load one of the two bombs they've developed on a submarine bound for the United States. They detonate the other to destroy all evidence.

Present day United States. Lake, a covert operative for the United States government, is on the trail of rogue militia terrorists. He begins to learn that various factions are all searching for something in the San Francisco area. Something powerful. Something that was lost over sixty years ago, but still can be a powerful weapon in the wrong hands.

Battling the Japanese Yakuza, North Korean agents, home-grown terrorists, and betrayal in his own organization, Lake must uncover the history of this threat in order to prevent disaster.

"Mayer had me hooked from the very first page." Stephen Coonts
"A pulsing technothriller. A nailbiter in the best tradition of adventure fiction." Publishers Weekly.

This book was a real page turner. The ending was good, although I expected a little bit more. From beginning to end...I couldn't put it down.
