China Clipper by Jamie Dodson (original cover art by Keith Ferris) is a softcover book, 273 pages in length. This book is an excellent read for young and old alike, highlighting the pioneering era of the 1930s when Pan American Airways flying boats such as the China Clipper had started to make regularly scheduled flights from the West Coast to Hawaii and the Orient.

It's September, 1935 and senior year is tough for Nick Grant. He'd spent months building Pacific island bases for Pan Am's great flying boats, the Clippers. Life aboard the supply ship, piloting the Clipper and fighting Japanese spies makes life at Alameda High School dull. At least his part-time job at Pan Am's Clipper base provides some relief from the monotonous routine of high school.

Suddenly, a series of strange accidents cast suspicion on Nick and a Japanese-American mechanic who has become Nick's mentor. Has Japanese master spy Miyazaki returned to threaten the Clippers? Only Nick's quick thinking had intervened and stopped Miyazaki in the earlier attempt to destroy the flying boats. If the spy has returned, Nick will need help in stopping him -- but from whom? The FBI ignores his suspicions and most of his co-workers think he is imagining things to get attention. Then two new teens enter his life and things only get worse.

Read what the critics have to say regarding "China Clipper":

"Nick Grantís adventures continue in China Clipper as the pace, and the action quickens. Working part time for Pan American Airways, Nick battles Imperial Japanese agent, Lieutenant Commander Miyazaki. Miyazaki continues his quest to thwart US and Pan Am Pacific goals and also attempts to steal US aviation technology. Dodson based his story on actual events and provides excellent realism. The danger escalates after Nick saves the China Clipper from destruction, and then discovers that Miyazaki has targeted his family for retribution." - Annie Laura Smith, author of The Legacy of Bletchley Park, Will Paris Burn? and Saving da Vinci.

"In 1935, America is looking for heroes. Amelia Earhart, Charles Lindbergh, and Howard Hughes are heroes to some. But the real heroes are the honest, hard-working people; the ordinary folks who do the extraordinary when called upon. Nick Grant is just such a hero. From the first page of China Clipper I was on a white-knuckled ride through paradise with Nick, Leilani, and the evil Japanese spy Miyazaki. I canít wait for the movie! C. M. Fleming, author of Finder's Magic The popular Nick Grant series continues with China Clipper, a fast-moving, fun tale of adventure, flying boats, spies, and the sea. I love this series!" - Homer Hickam, author of Rocket Boys/October Sky.
