Nazi Saboteurs on the Bayou intertwines historic persons, events and locales of WWII with a fictional Nazi plot to disrupt the manufacture of Higgins boats, the Allied landing craft which won the war. Spanning the globe from amphibious landings in the Pacific, to the exotic environs of New Orleans, to the secret world of Bletchley Park, England, to the Allied invasion of North Africa, this thriller, covering two weeks during the summer of 1942, combines an intriguing cast of characters with the historically important Andrew Jackson Higgins, Admiral John Godfrey of British Intelligence, Navajo code talker Chester Nez, Colonel “Wild Bill” Donovan of the OSS (later the CIA), Commander Ian Fleming of MI6, along with a Polish intelligence officer code-named “Rygor,” and Sylvestro “Silver Dollar Sam” Carolla, the crime boss of New Orleans.
A German who dies in a New Orleans whorehouse is carrying a notebook of maps, surveillance notes and codes. As a result, Nazi SS conspirators search for that notebook, killing anyone, including two U.S. Marshals, who interfere with their plans to disrupt the production of the steel-ramped landing crafts built by Higgins Industries.
Can this sabotage be stopped by a Navy intelligence officer, or a Mafia don and his Cuban mistress with ties to MI6, or the brilliant codebreakers of Bletchley Park? The lives of U.S. Marines and Navajo code talkers in the Pacific and the Allied Forces of Operation Torch in North Africa depend on them.
The victory of Allied Forces hangs in the balance.
