"The Last of the Greatest Generation"
 
Author J. Robert Gould reveals a tale set in modern times in his first book, The Last of the Greatest Generation.  It's a great mystery novel wrapped up in a World War II international story, created in two timelines with parallel love stories and an alcoholic reporter with a nose of a good plot.
 
Featuring the USS TICONDEROGA (CV-14), nations collide as the last living World War II veteran races against time to share the harrowing secrets he's held on to for half a century. When fate steps in to disrupt his plans, the story takes on a fast-paced, masterful turn as the truth emerges, secret by secret, that will change history.
