December 6 by Martin Cruz Smith

December 6

Harry Niles is an American who has spent nearly his entire life in Japan.  The son of missionaries, Harry grew up with Tokyo street kids and would have passed for Japanese if not for his gaijin looks.

Fast forward to December 6, 1941.  Harry has made of living as a hustler, doing business as easily with the Yakuza as with the US Navy.  His keen powers of observation have led him to discover a secret: the Japanese are going to attack Pearl Harbor.  Where do Harry’s loyalties lie?

I enjoyed this World War II thriller, although it was a bit slow to start.
