Publisher's Summary

When they come for you, they come in darkness….

The marines have seized control of the Japanese airfield on Guadalcanal, but this isn’t the end of their troubles…it’s only the beginning. The Japanese bomb them by day, attack from the forbidding darkness of the jungles by night, and their ships, like hungry sharks, prowl just offshore after the sun goes down.

Whoever controls the canal controls the war. The Japanese know this, so they concoct a plan to send men and equipment ashore using fast destroyers—ships that can come by night and leave before the Cactus Airforce or Admiral Fletcher’s carrier planes can stop them. But the navy has a plan, too…

Art Turner and the crew of Bull Shark are being joined by another submarine, an old S-boat. Short of men and shaken by a recent battle, S-52 receives a temporary XO in the form of Pat Jarvis. Now, these two submarines must race back to Guadalcanal and throw themselves into the line of fire, literally putting themselves between the struggling marines and the relentless forces of Tojo before the empire can retake the island.

Yet another danger lurks out in the darkness—an obsessed Japanese officer who wants nothing more than to personally crush Turner and Bull Shark beneath his heel. Now, Takashi Sato pits himself and his aircraft carrier against Turner in a contest of wits and wills, and it can only end one way.

Guns blaze, swords clash, and the land and sea thunder beneath the storm of war in this latest WWII adventure thriller.

Engaging Action and Co!or ful Charactors

This story was the best of the submarine Bullshark series, in my estimation. Its' action was engaging and continued throughout the book. Characters were lively, individually interesting, and kept the story moving along at its' swift pace. While the ' big picture' of the Guadalcanal campaign was kept historically accurate, the storyline of the book was completely fictional and, in some instances, farfetched. At the same time, I'd rate it an A+ for its' entertainment value.

A huge bang for your buck!

Wow, this one picks up where the last book left off and gets even bigger! You could almost make two books out of this one. What's really cool is that overlaying all the subbmarine, airplane and Marine combat action are compelling stories of characters who are as real as the historical figures who actually fought this war. It really brings the story to life and makes it realistically gritty and compelling.
