“This novel kicks total ass. Pieces of the Game is like a deep-water, Clive Cussler treasure hunt crossed with the “The Great Escape” with enough intrigue and action to rival both.” Paperback Warrior
Shortly before the U.S. and Filipino forces surrender to the Japanese on May 6, 1942, they dump all of Manilla’s silver pesos, valued at $8 million, into the deep water south of Caballo Bay. The Japanese want the fortune, so they force seven American POWs to dive into the cold depths to help recover it…or face torture and death. One man survives to tell the tale…but that harrowing adventure is only the prelude to the rest of his story, set long after the war is over, when he returns to Manilla to face an old enemy.
“Lee Gifford’s strength lies in his ability to tell an epic story. Pieces of the Game was like this grand cinematic experience. The opening events that eventually spills into a high-adventure military tale felt as if they were backed by a rich symphonic score.” The Paperback Warrior
