'It is said that war brings out the best in people. Not so in Patrick Corrigan. When the Japanese invade the idyllic island of Santa Maria he has no intention of risking his life for the Allied cause. He can't wait to make ready his boat and set a course for the peaceful haven of Australia. He has, however, failed to reckon with the wiles and determination of the missionary's beautiful niece, Rachel...

'A fast-paced thriller dramatising the legendary deeds of the Coastwatchers who fearlessly went into hiding and reported on Japanese movements in the battle for the Pacific.' (Publication summary)
