Rex Gunn was the first to write the tragic story of Iva Toguri, wrongly convicted of treason against the American people for her supposed role as the legendary "Tokyo Rose" during WWII. Iva, California born and raised and intensely proud of it, was trapped in Japan by the bombing of Pearl Harbor. At Radio Tokyo she conspired with American and Allied POW broadcasters to sabotage Japanese propaganda, and sacrificed greatly to aid the POWs with food, medicine, and Allied news. Although investigated and released by the U.S. Army, the post-war American public and the Truman administration needed a scapegoat, and she was brought to San Francisco to stand trial for treason. Rex had served as war correspondent during the War in the Pacific and covered Iva Toguri's 1949 trial as an AP radio editor. He was intimately connected with her story, and remained in contact with her until his death in 1999. This is the revised editon of Rex's original 1977 manuscript.

"Grips you by the throat from beginning to end."—Cleveland Plain Dealer ALONE WITH HER NEW HUSBAND on a tiny Pacific atoll, a young woman, combing the beach, finds an odd aluminum container washed up out of the lagoon, and beside it on the sand something glitters: a gold tooth in a scorched human skull. The investigation that follows uncovers an extraordinarily complex and puzzling true-crime story. Only Vincent Bugliosi, who recounted his successful prosecution of mass murderer Charles Manson in the bestseller Helter Skelter, was able to draw together the hundreds of conflicting details of the mystery and reconstruct what really happened when four people found hell in a tropical paradise. And the Sea Will Tell reconstructs the events and subsequent trial of a riveting true murder mystery, and probes into the dark heart of a serpentine scenario of death.
