“Gripping and intelligent … with characters I instantly liked.”

“Highly atmospheric and a great read.”
—Ron Lealos, author of Pashtun
“In The Preserve, Steve Anderson once again paints a compelling and page-turning thriller.”
—Peter Riva, author of the Pero Baltazar safari thrillers
“Inspired from these real-life events spanning the Yamashita gold conspiracy and General MacArthur’s inheritance of the ‘secret mother lode’ of looted fortune, Steve Anderson’s The Preserve, set in the Hawaii of 1948, raises the curtain on the American hegemony that persisted in the postwar era.”
—The Big Thrill magazine
