Chameleons, a WW II novel unlike any other. Armed Conflict, Mystery, Suspense, Heroism, Romance by Marcus Nannini
What they are saying about CHAMELEONS:
"Based on a true story, CHAMELEONS is a superb recounting of what happened to a surviving crew member of a Japanese midget sub after it attacked Pearl Harbor, complete with details about their preparation, as well as present day American investigators probing his secret identity years later." Lisa Edelman, Indie Reader.com
"Overall, I thought it was a great story. I liked your transitions and use of flashbacks, as well as your approach for the presentation of Chameleons." John Bean, EBooks2Go.
"Chapter Fourteen (the Plank Bar) is the best chapter of any book I've ever read." David S. Mathias, Rebel Woodworking.
"A well-written novel requires an author to master many skills. For me, the most important is to keep the reader so engrossed that he or she finds it hard to take a break. Based on this…, Chameleons is such a story." Don Westenhaver, Southern California Writers Association.
Five out of five stars. A great read that will not disappoint!

From the beginning scene in 1941, inside a hot, cramped midget sub, I was hooked. When the first chapter ended and I began chapter two I found myself standing on a beach in present day Hawaii. Wow! The contrast pulled me in further. There was suddenly a mystery as some workers digging a pool found a skeleton with a handgun, a mysterious box and a sword. Then I had to keep reading.
By the time I got to the middle of the book I began viewing the antagonist as more of a protagonist. At 3/4 way through he was the protagonist and the Navy had become the enemy. While the newspaper reporter became vile, I very much appreciated that the author gave some underlying reasons for her behavior.
The last ninety pages were a whirlwind. I could not stop reading until the end. Very unique story. I felt as if I were in each scene with the people and locations so realistically described.
I highly recommend this book!
Five out of five stars. Get this Book!

I LOVED this book! I don't normally read history novels but I have read other short stories by this author and really liked his writing so I bought it. What a fantastic way to learn about both US and Japanese history while being engaged in a suspenseful novel. The author beautifully develops the characters and shows the humanity of both sides. Now my 13 year old son is totally hooked...highly recommend!
Five out of five stars. Fast Read!

About The Author...
About the Author, Marcus A. Nannini
Marcus Nannini began his journalistic career when he published his own newspaper in the sixth grade, charging twenty five cents for the privilege of reading the only printed copy of each edition.
During his undergraduate years Nannini was a paid reporter and worked three semesters as the research assistant for journalism professor and published author Richard Stocks Carlson, Ph.D.
Nannini is a life-long history buff with a particular interest in World War II and the Pearl Harbor attack. His continuing curiosity over several Japanese aerial photographs and the turtling of the U.S.S. Oklahoma lead him to write Chameleons, first as a screenplay and now as a full-length novel.
More than four months of research were devoted to Chameleons, underscoring Nannini’s efforts to painstakingly recreate the experiences of his protagonist, “Ken Kida,” both prior to, and following the Japanese attack on that fateful Sunday morning, December 7, 1941.
Nannini has six World War II non-fiction magazine articles appearing in World at War and Strategy and Tactics magazines in the near future. His next novels in the series, Geographic Treachery and Vigorous Brutality, will soon be available. Look for the Big Screen version of his non-fiction magazine story, Left for Dead at Nijmegen, which will be titled Dinner with Himmler.
