As their ship crosses the Pacific, headed to war in the Philippines, the bumbling Olafson looks for ways to kill Bart who is looking for ways to stay alive, all while the crew of the Renegade begins to believe that Bart might already have become a shade. But, the winds of war blow Bart and Olafson to the Spice Islands and the Japanese, and to Saya, who is fighting a war of her own. Can they survive in a jungle world of cannibals, poisonous birds, and a woman bent on revenge against the Japanese?
Shades of the Deep Blue Sea is more than a historically-precise novel of World War II in the Pacific. It also is a riveting foray into dodging torpedoes, machine guns, and Japanese patrols that makes one wonder whether Bart could actually see what happened beforehand. A shade, after all, is more than just a change of color….
Shades of the Deep Blue Sea is another remarkable work of historical fiction from Jack Woodville London, author of Children of a Good War, winner of Best Historical Fiction, War and Military, 2018 and the French Letters Series.
