Imagine a dead German in a whorehouse bed. A pair of bloated corpses floating in a Mississippi bayou. A mysterious notebook filled with unknown codes and hand drawn maps. Brave young Marines and Navajo code talkers landing in the Pacific. A Mafia Don helping the Allies seek revenge on the Fascists. A secret meeting of U.S. marshals with a New Orleans crime boss. A series of anagrams challenging the code-breaking talents of the brilliant minds at Bletchley Park. A gathering of international intelligence officers onboard a ship in the western Mediterranean. A Nazi plot to sabotage the production of Higgins landing craft without which Americans would never be able to land safely on a foreign beach.
