Flying Boats & Spies by Jamie Dodson (original cover art by Ben Stahl) is a softcover book, 239 pages in length. It is 1935 and the winds of war have begun to fan the flames of conflict across the Pacific. As Nick Grant tries to support his mother and sister during the Depression, he's swept into a deadly contest between spies struggling to control the Pacific Ocean.

Nick's life abruptly changes the moment Anne Lindbergh offers him a month's wages to deliver a mysterious map case to Bill Grooch aboard the tramp steamer the SS North Haven.

Desperate for money, Nick agrees. Suddenly the map case and Grooch catapult him into a quiet, but deadly cat and mouse game between US and Japanese spies. Nick becomes a vital player in a mission spanning the Pacific Ocean: a mission vital to US security as well as a mortal danger to Japan.

Read what the critics have to say regarding "Flying Boats & Spies":

  • "Delightful! Flying Boats & Spies is a welcome return to a glamorous age of high-adventure and heroes--and a tribute to the grand-adventure series of yesteryear. Rollicking and great fun, this well-told tale of international intrigue should appeal to every generation in a family. I look forward to future volumes in this series."

    Ralph Peters, author of "Wars of Blood and Faith".

  • FLYING BOATS & SPIES is a terrific read! It is a compelling story with engaging fictional and historical characters who take us into the emerging Pacific war. Japanese spies challenge American's vital interests as Nick Grant's adventures plunge the reader into the world of international espionage. Dodson's use of the historical Pan American Clipper setting provides exceptional realism."

Annie Laura Smith, Author of "The Legacy of Bletchley Park", "Will Paris Burn", and "Saving Da Vinci", a World War II trilogy for young readers.

  • Flying Boats and Spies nails it! I have sailed those waters, lived some of Nick Grant's adventures, and shared the very skies he flew. Jamie Dodson got it all right with a page-turning story that took me back to my youth and Pacific adventures that others only dream about. Grab this book before someone else does. And bring shark repellent... you'll forget it's not you in the book.

    Austin Boyd, Navy pilot and submarine hunter, award-winning novelist, and author of the "Mars Hill Classified" trilogy
