This beautifully written work of fiction is based on a true historical fact, the destruction of all the currency in Hawaii in 1942 by Roosevelt because he felt the Hawaiian Islands would be invaded by the Japanese.
Author Steven Walker weaves a masterful story of four desperate veterans, shot-up heroes of Guadalcanal that get medically discharged and become private detectives in the hell hole called Chinatown In Hawaii.
Two Gunnery Sergeants, a Naval Lt. and a tough former Padre of the First Marine Division with enough medals of valor to fill a empty cigar box set the Hawaii on fire to stop the stealing of millions of dollars.
They have very little knowledge how to be detectives but they know right from wrong and they know how to fight which means throwing out the law book.

No one writes like this anymore, but Walker does…as Raymond chandler would say, “He talks like a man of his age talks-that is, with a crude wit, a lively sense of the grotesque, a disgust for the sham and a contempt for pettiness!”
