The Kauai Connection

Jack Cahill returns to his boyhood home of Kauai to spend his retirement after a tumultuous career with Global Dynamics. He is surprised to learn of a family secret that his father had worked for Japan during WW II by sharing intelligence information about American naval vessels. The CIA is determined to kill Cahill before he uncovers the truth about Japan's attack on Pearl Harbor.

Cahill enlists the support of his boyhood friend, Nathan Kaleo, to decipher records found in an old island fort that lead to a startling discovery that the elder Cahill did not act alone.

Book Reviews

I enjoyed reading this story
Michael Psaltis of The Ethan Ellenberg Literary Agency | 2003 Writer's Digest Self-Publishing Contest May, 2003

"May be worthy of an honorable mention based almost entirely on the fact that Barton is a confident, talented writer. The Kauai Connection is an intriguing tale, though not entirely unpredictable, and Barton does a good job of telling it. . . . I thought the Kauai Connection was definitely engaging and I enjoyed reading this story. . . ."

Excellent Reading Adventure
Gene Marcum | on Amazon.com September 9, 2002

This is one of those "I couldn't put it down until I finished it" books although I took 2 and 1/2 days to read it because of other interruptions.

The first since I got hooked on Tom Clancy and several of his books. The first several chapters kept drawing me to read more. I liked the way Mr. Barton established the subject and the characters in such a way as to keep me wanting to read the next page and/or chapter to see what was going to happen next in the story and the characters.

My favorite characters are Jack Cahill, Julie Stinson, and Old Man Parker.

I now want to read more of Mr. Barton's books and I think I will start with Camouflage.
