“Dramatic … convincing historical detail that really distinguishes this [novel] from the competition.” —Publisher's Weekly
The US Navy has won Guadalcanal.
But a brilliant Japanese admiral will stop at nothing to get it back.
He already masterminded the Pearl Harbor attacks. And to seize Guadalcanal, he has a far more devastating plan...one that will call upon every Japanese military asset in the Pacific.
The Allies have top secret technology that has never been used. Its effectiveness is uncertain. But for Lieutenant Commander Todd Ingram, it may be his only hope.
In a desperate battle against an onslaught of Japanese air raids, Todd must fight with everything he has—even if it means turning friends into enemies. If he fails, the US Navy won’t just lose Guadalcanal...it will be crippled forever.
Praise for John J. Gobbell and WHEN DUTY WHISPERS LOW:
