Code Name: Orion's Eye,
This review is from: Code Name: ORION'S EYE (Hardcover)
Hundreds of books have been written about World War II, many giving the sweep of epic battles, some highlighting the bravery of individual soldiers. CODE NAME: ORION'S EYE, a first novel by Tom Gauthier, joins the list. Gauthier blends real events (the sinking of the SS San Juan by a Japanese sub Nov. 11, 1943) and people with a fictional back story involving a secret radar device, Nazi spies, a safe house, the OSS and the FBI. He focuses on one mission - finding the spy and delivering the radar safely; and, he introduces Major Amos Mead, an OSS officer whose adventures will be continued in future works. For those who enjoy detailed history and adventure, this is an appealing read.
