This book is a fictionalized account of Life on Kwajalein with a heroine American girl whose grandmother was still in Vladivostok and who had been enticed to spy for the Russians with the promise of a better life for her grandmother. She was an attractive girl and had a number of suitors. Most of the account centers around the time when a black box from an incoming missile which had splashed down in the lagoon went missing. Oh, the splash in had been observed and triangulated and the dive teams went out. But, a storm came in and the divers had to leave the area. After the storm passed, the divers tried to find the black box to no avail. The Navy Seals were called in and they searched and searched and found nothing too. Maybe there was truth to the belief that the Russians had sneaked in from their ship constantly patrolling around the island while the storm was on going and their divers had found and retrieved the black box. The major news crews came and tried to elicit information for news accounts but even they couldn’t get the people on the island to talk. What was the truth? Read and learn more. And, don’t forget about the beach used by the Marshallese couples for private sexual encounters always vigilant for the coconut crabs.
Fireworks and marriage at the end. The test of one missile shooting down another in the stratosphere and the two imploding actually worked. And, the heroine married the young Lt. He had won out over the other suitors.
