              Award-winning David Hill's exciting WW2 novel for tweens and teens inspired by the coastwatchers of Operation Pacific. 'It's not going to be a cushy job, young Benson. You're on your own. If a snake takes a mouthful of you, there's no medics to help. Japs will be looking for you.... Far as they're concerned, you're spies. And when a spy gets captured, remember . . .' It's 1943 and 19-year-old radio operator Frank Benson is shipped out to the Japanese-occupied Solomon Islands to become a coastwatcher. Equipped with a wireless set and two companions, radio assistant Wally and Les, a gruff but experienced soldier, his mission is to keep tabs on the enemy and transmit coded information back to HQ. In the dense jungle the men meet a young Solomon Islander. A'ata says he has something vital to show them. Frank's instincts are to trust him, but Les disagrees. What if it's a trap to deliver them to the Japanese? No training could have prepared Frank for this - and their survival depends on his next decision.
