The Last Lieutenant
A Todd Ingram Novel
John J. Gobbell
Under an unstoppable barrage of artillery, brilliant U.S. cryptographers crack the Japanese top-secret code, revealing their chilling plans for a doomsday attack on Midway Island.
The Navy's high command responds quickly, mobilizing all they have to counter-attack the massive Japanese firepower. But there is a mole among the code-cracking team-a ruthless, cold-blooded Nazi spy on orders to stop at nothing in aiding the Japanese.
BUT NOT OUTSMARTED
Enter Navy Lieutenant Todd Ingram-the man the mole didn't count on. As the Japanese ravage the South Pacific, Ingram must escape the onslaught-and stop a traitor who has the power to turn the tide of war toward the land of the rising sun.
In the heart-pounding tradition of EYE OF THE NEEDLE comes a thriller full of raw courage, non-stop action, and an unforgettable villain.
