West Wind Clear

The fourth book in the Clement Wisdom Series.

The fourth in the Clement Wisdom Series; West Wind, Clear.

In late 1941, the Pacific is a very different place from only one year earlier.  Japan threatens and vast numbers of Imperial Army spies have infiltrated throughout the Pacific Islands in readiness for conflict.

Just as he is preparing to leave Australia and return to Britain, Major Clement Wisdom is seconded to lead a small guerrilla force.  Their mission: to rescue Captain John Winthorpe from Singapore and take him, and a vital secret he carries, back to Australia.

While enroute to the island bastion of the British Far East Fleet, Clement learns that Malaya, Singapore, and Pearl Harbour have all been bombed and war with Japan is declared.

With no up-to-date intelligence on the volatile region, and leading a group of men he barely knows, much less trusts, Clement’s orders leave him with no option but to proceed.  His fears are compounded when one of his men dies in an apparent suicide and it seems likely that there is an enemy spy on board; one who will manipulate and kill to evade discovery.
