Summary
"It is 1943 and war rages in the Pacific. A Japanese dagger (wakazashi) of great value and antiquity is taken from the Japanese Garrison Commander on the isle of Betio in the Tarawa Group. The wakazashi is lost for 50 years. Three men, descendants of participants in that battle, are now desperately searching for it - Chris ("Mac") MacMillan, son of an SAS soldier who fought with the Marines, Tim Collins junior, son of a marine Sergeant and decorated war hero, and Hajime, the son of the Japanese commander. Life and death decisions are made as Mac and his friend Emma seek to find the dagger before their lives are lost in the chase. Meanwhile the mysterious Business Hub works its evil against every move Mac and Emma make. A powerful epic of history and romance, the story unfolds at the 50th anniversary of the Battle of Tarawa. We journey through New Zealand's dangerous southern Fiordland, the steaming humidity of Tarawa, into the cauldron of Washington DC politics. We become entangled in the banking mysteries of Andorra before the final resolution at an isolated beach at Scandretts Bay, New Zealand"--Back cover
