Black Dragons Attack by Jamie Dodson is a softcover fiction book 242 pages in length. This book is Book 4 of the Nick Grant Adventure series and takes place in the pre-WWII period in the Pacific.
Book IV. The Black Dragons are back! Prior to the Second World War, the United States and Imperial Japan were locked in a deadly espionage war. By 1936, Japan knew that war was inevitable to stop American influence from spreading across the Pacific. However, before Japan could attack, they needed the advanced technology that would ensure a quick and decisive victory. Only Naval Aviation Cadet Nick Grant stood between Japan's Black Dragons and the US technology that they so desperately craved.
BLACK DRAGONS ATTACK is great and builds on the first three Nick Grant Adventures. There's more action and adventure with great hooks for a movie and anyone interested in Howard Hughes and his exploits. As an aviator, the authentic flight scenes and the crash gave me goosebumps.

This book is an excellent read for young and old alike, highlighting the pre-WWII era of intelligence intrigue in the Pacific between US and Japanese intelligence agencies as well as Pan American Airways. During this period, Pan Am was instrumental in opening up Pacific aviation routes to the Far East and established island bases across the Pacific to support their Pan Am Clipper flying boats.
