This is a novel revealing the astonishing underground partnership that changed the course of history. As the Hindenberg dramatically burned, the US government realised its ports were under grave threat from German attack as the Second World War approached its zenith. If the Pentagon and Navy couldn't get the information required, they would risk an unthinkable loss. Facing such danger, the authorities made a decision that would never have been sanctioned at any other time - it sought to solicit the help of the country's most high profile and criminal mafia bosses. Could this historic and secret move, fraught with difficulties and dangers, help turn the tide. This title is based on a true story.

A fascinating and lesser-known part of Mafia and WWII history, this brilliantly researched novel is quite an eye opener! * Shelly Marsden, Irish World London * Dock workers shout and swear coarsely. You can almost smell the creosote and tobacco smoke as they do while the impression of a New York metropolis coming into its own is particularly potent. As a narrator he never has us at a loss as to our location, and using something of a film maker's palate, he lets the streets and docksides of New York become a central character in their own right. * Hilary A. White, The Sunday Independent * Like a sunken treasure ship this intriguing wartime story has now been well and truly excavated. * Irish Daily Mail *
