When a beautiful woman appears at his office door in December 1941, San Francisco detective Tom Hale doesn't believe her story. But the woman is strangled within hours of meeting Hale, and he plunges into a rat race of murder and espionage. Hassled by the police, Naval Intelligence and the FBI, Hale must track down a shadowy killer who is always one step ahead -- leaving corpses in his wake. Thus begins a deadly case, just days before the attack on Pearl Harbor. Hale discovers the connection to it all -- one that ties the deaths and disappearances to the suspicious demise of Hector Bywater, a British journalist and spy during World War I, and one of the world's most renowned naval war strategists. Fortunately, Bywater left behind clues to the colossal secret he'd learned about Japan's ultimate weapon, code-named "Dragon's Gate." Now, racing to trap the killer, Hale knows time is running out -- because he's become the final target.
