In war there is betrayal even amongst soldiers fighting for the same country. A German crew has orders to deliver ammunition in a submarine to Argentina, but in fact, the crew realizes that it’s not ammunition but other priceless cargo on board. Mikey escaping the German camp is also a stowaway on the vessel. What will be his future and that of the priceless cargo? Will he ever live to meet Eddie's family?
This book crisscrosses three countries and the deep sea full of mysteries and drama. My only dislike is that the buildup was a little boring, but once you go past the first few chapters, you will never want to put this book down.
So give this book a shot and don’t give up just as it takes off. Sometimes you just have to invest a bit more time to get to the juicy stuff.
Inside an old German U-Boat rusting on the bottom of the Baltic are millions in gold bars, stolen art, and a secret that could tear NATO apart. The only one who knows the truth is Mike Randall, a battle-scarred American who survived four months in the frozen Hell of northern Germany at the end of the war. When he does speak up, he puts a target on his own forehead, one which the Russians, the West Germans, the U-boat's former owners, the Israeli Mossad, and even his own government quickly take aim at. Some want the gold, some want him dead, and some want proof about a high-ranking spy inside NATO itself. Randall's wants are much simpler. Caught between the Kremlin and a new, deadly, 4th Reich, he wants revenge and to satisfy some old debts with a steel-jacketed bullet.
