Product Description

Autumn, 1941. At a secret meeting in Washington, FBI Assistant Director Harry Guttman is told that the Soviet Union has been infiltrating the highest levels of the United States government. Fifty thousand dollars has been wired by Russian intelligence officers in New York to a Japanese bank in Los Angeles, but the trail goes cold. Special Agent Jimmy Nessheim knows a local informant who's willing to help, but he vanishes mysteriously overnight. Nessheim's frantic search leads him through the dense streets of L.A.'s Little Tokyo to a risky undercover gambit in Hawaii, just hours before the Japanese surprise attack.

Hailed as the 'successor to Frederick Forsyth" (Independent), Andrew Rosenheim shifts his focus from the homegrown Nazi threats in Fear Itself to the looming threat of war with Japan in the last days of peace before Pearl Harbor awoke the sleeping giant. The Little Tokyo Informant is a well researched and skillfully rered portrait of America on the cusp of the world stage.

"This top-notch historical thriller from Rosenheim, the first in a new series . . . will only whet readers' appetites for more." —Publishers Weekly (starred review)
