The Secret Eye

Overview


Charlie Brand, barely 17, enters World War II where he protects the Pacific fleet from Japanese threats in this new novel about the history of radar in World War II. Charlie Brand joined the Navy to avenge Japan's attack on Pearl Harbor and he has the best eyes and ears in the US Pacific Fleet. In Japan, Hadaki Yamatsumi journeys to determine his ancestor's will for his life. The two men are thrust on a collision course with history where only one man will survive. In Great Britain, a gift to the United States will change the direction of the war and alter the life of Charlie Brand forever. While Charlie struggles through loss, a chance meeting on a train propels him to a new life he never dreamed he could have. As America prepares her response to the attack on Pearl Harbor, a new secret technology, Radar, will begin to turn the tide of the war. However, a new Japanese weapon, the Kamikaze, will threaten America's technological advantage. Does Charlie have the skill to detect these attacks before they can destroy the USS Lexington and the Pacific Fleet? Can America find a way to defeat this new threat, and will the Secret Eye save American lives and finally win the war?
