Books Info:

Intersect: Danger free pdf 'Intersect: Danger' is a suspenseful historical novel, loosely based on amazing true events. After harrowing adventures in Europe and Africa during the era of Rommel and the Blitz, young U.S. Navy Lt. Cdr. Tim Nordhall is reassigned to an engineering analysis (read: intelligence) unit in San Francisco, where he finds himself involved with two unique and heroic women. His fictional story, and those of Corie Johnson (WAFS test pilot who easily handles a giant Navy B-314 sea clipper) and Naomi Meged (spy and partisan), is unique yet plausible. Even more fascinating the historical background about atomic espionage and Soviet treachery. During a few dangerous and breathtaking months in mid-1945, two epic wars intersected: World War II and the Cold War. San Francisco was a marshaling point of men and materials for the Pacific War. Here, the United Nations was about to be inaugurated. Top-secret atomic bomb materials were shipped through under heavy guard on their way to Hiroshima and Nagasaki. The city was a center of cutting-edge research and a nest of spies of every description. Also, San Francisco was one hopping party night and day, a neon universe of USOs and hostesses, big bands at the Drake and jitterbug in Chinatown, as young men and women celebrated life and thumbed their noses at death in the small but ever-urbane wartime city. Fact, not fantasy: In the final days of World War II, Hitler sent the giant submarine U-234 on a mysterious mission to Japan--with jet airplanes and weapons-grade uranium to drop up to six atomic bombs on American cities. Fact, not fantasy: The shipment of highly enriched uranium oxide was surrendered to the U.S. in the Atlantic Ocean and then disappearedfrom the eyes of history. Speculation: Did it wind up in our atomic bomb program, or did Soviet agents spirit it away over the Alaska-Siberia air bridge under Lend-Lease? Fact, not fantasy: The first Secretary-General of the United Nations was a high U.S. State Department official--Alger Hiss, a Soviet agent whose betrayal of the U.S. tilted the playing field to favor the U.S.S.R. for decades to come. These are some of the historical threads woven together in a concise, understandable, and plausible fashion against the backdrop of San Francisco. It's a riveting background for the shadowy story of a sailor home from the sea and in love with two remarkable women. Together, Tim and Corie and Meg helped save the world. This is a risk-taking novel about how, for a brief time, the rules were broken, the world was saved, and love reigned in a small place in San Francisco called Nob Hill.
