Arch Patton, middle-aged CIA operative, finds himself associated with his unrequited love, Virginia
and a band of Hawaiians Natives, active in the Sovereignty Movement, dedicated to protesting
the possible nuclear contamination of the Islands. The adventure also provides a ‘travelogue’ of the Island of Oahu.
Some reviews from readers:
I am spoiled. Reading this adventure thriller by James Strauss has ruined me. I no longer enjoy reading
boring books of this genre. It was a privilege to live life in the author’s shoes for 245 pages, although it ended too soon. He wrote about Hawaii as no tourist would ever see it, descriptions of scenic beauty, and tiny places on
the map like Rabbit Island. His characters seemed real, very real. Arch Patton was the most interesting. I have a feeling that the author is just as intelligent, savvy, and world-wise as Arch or how else could he write about him?
If you temporarily want to escape your mundane world, have a great adventure, and safely re-enter your own reality
again, this book is for you.
Great read. Such a good storyteller. You are there. I have read other things he has written and am always ready for more.
