CHAMELEONS, An Untold World War II Story by

MARCUS A. NANNINI 

“Mr. Nannini's blend of real life events, a compelling modern day mystery, and vibrant characters has resulted in a first-class novel which could easily become a lasting gem  in its genre.”

OnLineBookClub.org Review.   

"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

I finished your novel a few weeks ago and wanted to let you know I really enjoyed it.  It was very memorable – one of those books that stay with you for years.  The reason of course is that you did such a remarkable job of placing me into the wartime scenes.  Masaharu Yokoyama is a true WWII hero (though an enemy of the U.S.), and I enjoyed seeing how he evolved into Ken Kida over a 70-year span. 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, Vice President, Southern California Writers Association.

 “Chameleons was a rather entertaining read. Marcus A. Nannini included a little bit of everything in this well-rounded novel, from history and culture to mystery and drama.  It's a fascinating and fully immersive recipe that's full of intricate details and surprising twists. Fans of historical fiction or thrilling mysteries will surely be captivated by Chameleons from its very first page.”

AuthorsTalkAboutIt.com 4 of 4 star review. 

“This book, from a Japanese viewpoint, from Hawai'i to Korea and back to Hawai'i, was riveting. Some of the war scenes were enough to keep my fingers gripping my seat, literally. You will not see the ending coming, it is a total surprise. 

In a nutshell, if you like historical war fiction, this is definitely for you. The fact that it is definitely based on true events is proven by the pictures in the back of the book. There is enough here to make you wonder what exactly is fiction and what is not.”

 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.

 Tere Fredericks: “On Goodreads and Amazon, I gave you 5 stars. This was/is an amazing book. Please get off Facebook, stop eating, and stop doing anything else and get your next two books done, ok? I simply loved this book. Loved it.”

  “I finished the rest this morning! OUTSTANDING! I couldn't stop reading! Great Book!”
