In A CODE FOR TOMORROW, Navy Lieutenant Todd Ingram escaped the horrors of Corregidor. Now, in San Francisco, he agonizes over Helen Durand, the Army nurse he left behind, fighting for the resistance on Mindanao. Todd Ingram is befriended by Senior Lieutenant Eduard Dezhnev, the Soviet Naval attache' to the USSR's consulate there. But things go badly for the U.S. Navy in the South Pacific's Solomon Islands and Rear Admiral Raymond Spruance orders Ingram to the destroyer U.S.S.Howell as executive officer. Right back in the fighting, Ingram is caught in two of the epic naval battles off Guadalcanal: the Battle of Cape Esperance and the Battle of the Santa Cruz Islands. Amidst this, Ingram reaches for Helen but her rescue is hampered by the espionage activities of Dezhnev, a man Ingram grew to trust and admire. With the war at its apex, Todd Ingram puts his life on the line not only for the girl he loves, but for his country, and for a world so perilously close to collapse.
