This gripping novel full of action and suspense, a semifinalist in the Clive Cussler Adventure Writers Competition, introduces Captain Jake Rogers, a hardened smuggler transporting contraband through the U-boat-infested waters of the North Atlantic in the beginning phases of World War II. Rumored to have fled America because of a murder before beginning his career at sea, Rogers takes on cargo few other captains would be willing to carry—if the price is right.
But after witnessing the oppression of Jews in Amsterdam, Rogers agrees to take on the most dangerous cargo he has ever transported: a Jewish family fleeing Nazi persecution. Pursued by Oberleutnant Viktor Brauer, a brutal U-boat captain who will stop at nothing to send Rogers and his crew to the bottom of the ocean, the normally aloof Rogers finds himself drawn in by the family’s warmth and faith, and increasingly willing to do whatever it takes to get them to safety.
A thrilling, beautifully written story of adventure and compassion in the time of an unforgiving European world war, “The Hunt for The Peggy C” not only creates a fascinating, believable, and visual world of its own but keeps readers on the edge of their seats from page one through the shocking, unpredictable end.
