Synopsis

It seems like easy duty. Lieutenant Lowell Brady is detached from White House duty and ordered to London as a secret liaison to Winston Churchill, who is working his way back to power as the threat from Germany grows. All this dashing officer has to do is pass on messages, a made-to-order job for a handsome rake with no greater ambition than finding a rich woman to marry. Without meaning to, Brady becomes part of the small circle that knows Roosevelt intends to get America in the war before it is too late, even if it means sacrificing the Pacific Fleet. . Caught trying to warn Pearl Harbor, his punishment is being assigned to MacArthur's doomed army in the Philippines. They want shut him up for good, but Brady is as slippery as an eel. Years after the war, Smithsonian researcher Harriet Gallatin comes across his story while interviewing veterans at an old soldiers' home. Skeptical at first, she becomes a believer when the FBI and then the CIA take a menacing interest in her research. If the truth gets out, reputations will be destroyed and political careers ended. One thing is clear: they must disappear fast.

Veteran novelist Carroll (Dog Eat Dog, 1999, etc.) offers a heady brew of military history and conspiracy theory that will appeal to aficionados of both.
