On the outer banks of the Carolinas in 1941, fishermen and a few lonely sailors constitute the human population. Dominating the rough yet beautiful landscape is the majestic Killakeet Lighthouse, run for generations by the Thurlow family. But Josh Thurlow, the lighthouse keeper's son, has forsworn his heritage to become the commander of a small Coast Guard patrol boat. Tortured by twenty years of guilt for losing his brother at sea, Josh still searches for him, even while a looming wolf pack of German U-boats threatens to decimate the shipping lanes off the coast. One of the U-boats is captained by a hardened Nazi, Otto Krebs. But Captain Krebs may bring ashore more than the war; he may also have the answer to Josh Thurlow's quest.

    " Found this book to be very interesting. I had known in a vague way of the U-2 boats in the American waters but did not know as much as was told in this book. It was difficult to put the book down. "

    " Interesting book 1 in the Josh Thurlow series. Action and humor in a historical context. "

    " Fascinating read from a historical standpoint. Tells the story of German U-Boats off the coast of North Carolina during World War II and the damage that they caused. Always interesting to learn about things that usually don't pop up in our high school history textbooks. While I knew they were there, I had no idea that over 400 ships were destroyed. Amazing characters, both American and German, though the love story is hokey and completely unnecessary. "

    " His books are a better written version of Clive Cussler. Engaging, fun historic fiction. I'm hooked. "
