This is a novel revealing the astonishing underground partnership that changed the course of history. As the Hindenberg dramatically burned, the US government realised its ports were under grave threat from German attack as the Second World War approached its zenith. If the Pentagon and Navy couldn't get the information required, they would risk an unthinkable loss. Facing such danger, the authorities made a decision that would never have been sanctioned at any other time – it sought to solicit the help of the country's most high profile and criminal mafia bosses. Could this historic and secret move, fraught with difficulties and dangers, help turn the tide. This title is based on a true story.
