The Last Lieutenant (The Todd Ingram Series Book 1)

“Powerful and engaging. Truly an inspiring and emotional story of bravery and sacrifice … a must read.” —Nelson DeMille, #1 NYT Bestselling Author

The year is 1942.

Bataan has fallen to the Japanese. The Philippines seem sure to follow. When a general surrenders the last American outpost in the West Pacific, Navy Lieutenant Todd Ingram refuses to give up the fight.

Taking to sea under cover of darkness, he leads his ten man crew to accomplish the impossible….slip through Japanese naval blockades, travel 1900 miles to Australia, and singlehandedly stop a ruthless Nazi spy.

There are no reinforcements. There will be no rescue.

And if Todd fails, he won’t just lose his crew…he’ll lose the woman he loves, too.

In the heart-pounding tradition of Ken Follett’s Eye of the Needle comes a thriller brimming with raw courage, non-stop action, and an unforgettable villain.
