Author signing at Horizon Books: Buzz Harcus, Mission Shanghai.

Could the fickle finger of fate have unknowingly brought three strangers together on a military flight from the States to Shanghai in December, 1945? War correspondent Dallas Thompson is on a mission looking for the young Chinese girl who saved his life back in Nanking.

Major Keith Hammond, USMC, is on a mission looking for the young blonde white Russian wife he married in November 1941, the day before he was shipped off to the Philippines to prepare for war with the Japs. Corporal Frank Syperski, USMC, is hoping to find the cute Chinese girl he fell in love with in 1941 before he went off to war and landed in a Jap POW camp. He plans to marry her – and he’s brought the wedding ring with him.
