About this title


Downtown Olongapo in the Philippines during the days of Subic Bay Naval Base, the battle group just arrived, the last years of the Ferdinand Marcos presidency. The town is hot, dusty, sprawling with bars, girls, sailors—and undercover cops. When Frank Salvos arrives in town to join a battle group, he’s already under suspicion of guerilla connections—through coincidence and bad luck. His problems with mistaken identity continue after the carrier deploys from Subic into the South China Sea and crashes into a Soviet submarine, forcing the ship to return to Subic Bay and more trouble for Frank. A story from Olongapo as host to the US Navy in the Marcos years, Frank on the run through nightclubs and into the back streets.

About the Author:

Peter Bollington rode nine ships as part of civilian support to US Navy ships in the 1980’s, leading to the creation of this novel. He deployed from Coronado Island and 39th Street, San Diego and traveled to Alaska, Japan, Okinawa, Korea, the Philippines, Singapore, China, and Thailand, spending many years abroad in a support role to Navy and Marine troops aboard ships, plus living in South Korea and Malaysia. Salvos has emerged from travels in the exotic lands of the far east.

Wonder Book and Video has been in business since 1980 and online since 1997. We have over 1 Million books for sale on our website and another 1 Million books for sale in our 3 locations. We have a very active online inventory and as such, we can receive multiple orders for the same item. We fill those orders on a first come first serve basis, but will refund promptly any items that are out of stock. Since 1980 it has always been about the books. ALL kinds of books from 95 cent children's paperbacks to five figure rare and collectibles. A merging of the old and new is where we started, and it is where we are today. Our retail stores have always been places where a reader can rush in looking for a title needed for a term paper that is due the next day, or where bibliophiles can get lost "in the stacks" for as long as they wish. In 2002 USAToday recognized us as "1 of 10 Great Old Bookstores", and we have been featured in numerous other newspaper and TV stories including Washington Post and CSpan. Members ABAA, ILAB.
