San Francisco-based author Janis Cooke Newman joins us to discuss her new novel, "A Master Plan for Rescue." Set in the 1940s, the story is initially narrated by Jack Quinlan, a boy from New York City who experiences a mysterious loss of vision, then acquires the special, superhero-like ability to "see" what he hears on the radio. The story then takes a sudden turn when the narration is handed over to Jakob, a young holocaust survivor hopelessly searching for love. Jack and Jakob's stories eventually converge as the two join forces in an attempt to rescue children fleeing France by submarine.
