Overview

In Deadly Waters

The ultimate weapon, a secret mission deep into waters ruled by the forces of Imperial Japan. A story of courage and betrayal in the waning days of World War II.

As scientists race to build the atomic bomb. President Roosevelt initiates a peace plan that will save millions of lives and end the war without having to use the bomb. A submarine commanded by a combat-tested skipper embarks on a secret mission through mine-infested waters guarding the Sea of Japan. In Washington, a cadre of White House advisors opposed to FDR's plan argue that the use of atomic weapons on Japan will endure a U.S. victory not only in the Pacific, but also in the looming postwar face-off with the Soviet Union.

The president's death in office sets the stage for an explosive confrontation between men determined to shape history, and courageous submariners fighting to survive in deadly waters. In this novel, war and history collide and the outcome may change the world forever.
