Sorry, your claim that the mission was so secret that 'the vessels itinerary wasn't listed enroute or return' is false, the Indianapolis appeared on two tracking boards after they delivered the bomb parts.
ETA: I like how you didn't post what book it was.
A Japanese submarine sunk the cruiser on July 30, 1945. The ship just completed a mission to the island of Tinian; they delivered components of the atomic bomb, “Little Boy” that helped end the war.
