Stars: 4 1\2 Stars out of 5
A first rate action adventure set in the Pacific after WWII. The owners of a newly created airline, operating out of Hawaii, find themselves neck deep in the search for a missing military courier and $100,000 of newly minted gold coins. I always enjoy a book with a twist at the end and this one came up a winner.
I have rated this book 4.5 stars.
I obtained this book from Amazon in Kindle format.
In the aftermath of World War II, recently discharged Army Air Force pilot Duke Kellogg and his fledgling airline find themselves embroiled an adventure involving intrigue and missing treasure. The legend of the Golden Dragons has been debated from bar stools throughout the South Pacific for years, but most believe it to be nothing more than a good yarn. When a mysterious woman enters the Coral Pacific offices and claims to be the fiancée of a missing courier on a secret mission carrying gold to Chiang Kai-Shek, she sets in motion a series of events involving deception, mystery and hair raising exploits. Through it all Duke, his copilot, Edwina Watt and flight mechanic Nick Minetti struggle to uncover the truth and survive while Chasing Dragons.
