Set against the tumultuous backdrop of Hawaii in 1941, a battleground teeming with spies, intelligence agents, and military officials, where the island’s inhabitants are caught in the crosshairs. At the heart of this clandestine arena are two figures—Douglas Wada, the sole Japanese American agent in naval intelligence, and Takeo Yoshikawa, a Japanese spy assigned to gather critical intelligence on the U.S. fleet at Pearl Harbor.

Douglas Wada’s experiences in his hometown of Honolulu range from assuming the guise of an undercover newspaper reporter, deciphering wiretaps on the Japanese Consulate, to interrogating the first American prisoner of war captured in World War II, a submarine officer discovered on the beach. Meanwhile, Takeo Yoshikawa assumes the role of a junior diplomat within the consulate, surreptitiously collecting invaluable information that finds its way directly to Admiral Yamamoto. The entwined narratives of these two men form the foundation of Ghosts of Honolulu, an enthralling portrayal of the high-stakes cat-and-mouse games played between Japanese and American military intelligence agents, with the addition of a mercenary Nazi, in the Hawaiian archipelago on the cusp of World War II.

Caught in the whirlwind of this upheaval are the unsuspecting residents of Honolulu, including Douglas Wada’s father, who endure the anti-Japanese fervor that sweeps through the war-torn city, as well as a group of intelligence professionals who strive to prevent Hawaii from succumbing to the same mass internment fate that befell California.

Ghosts of Honolulu vividly captures the extraordinary risks inherent in the world of naval intelligence, where the line between reality and deception becomes blurred, testing the mettle of those embroiled in the dangerous game of espionage.
