Courtship and Counter Intelligence, WWII Style

This book will be available as an ebook sometime in the next two weeks. It's the real life romance of my in-laws, told through wartime letters. Don Murray enlisted and served as a cryptographer for the first two years of the war. He was then recruited to work in the Army Counter Intelligence Corps (CIC) as a Special Agent in the Pacific theatre.

Shortly after Don enlisted he wrote his lovely cousin, Arlene, because he hadn't received his Army paychecks. He asked if her father, a navy commander, could use his connections to expedite the government payments. It was an innocent query . . . or was it? Perhaps he had something else in mind? The "between the lines" is what kept me turning the pages. Once I started reading them I couldn't put these letters down.

Meet Arlene and Don:
