Summary

This supernatural thriller from F. R. Tallis takes listeners beneath the wartime seas of the stormy North Atlantic in 1941, where not all those on board are invited.

1941. A German submarine, U-330, patrols the stormy waters of the North Atlantic. It is commanded by Siegfried Lorenz, a maverick SS officer who does not believe in the war he is bound by duty and honor to fight in.

U-330 receives a triple-encoded message with instructions to collect two prisoners from a vessel located off the Icelandic coast and transport them to the base at Brest. A British submarine commander, Sutherland, and a Norwegian academic, Professor Bjørner Grimstad, are taken on board. Contact between the prisoners and Lorenz has been forbidden, and it transpires that this special mission has been ordered by an unknown source, high up in the SS. It is rumored that Grimstad is working on a secret weapon that could change the course of the war.

Then, Sutherland goes rogue, and a series of shocking, brutal events occur. In the aftermath, disturbing things start happening on the boat. It seems that a lethal, supernatural force is stalking the crew, wrestling with Lorenz for control. A thousand feet under the dark, icy waves, it doesn’t matter how loud you scream.

Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“Is it a WWII submarine story? Is it a horror story? Tallis wants us to work that out for ourselves…Fans of the German novel (and, later, movie) Das Boot will particularly enjoy this book’s almost palpable feelings of claustrophobia and impending disaster, and readers of WWII fiction will appreciate the level of detail the author brings to the story…It succeeds brilliantly.” Booklist (starred review)
“Clever and spooky. For Tallis, the darker recesses of the mind hold monsters enough. The novel is an elegantly constructed psychiatric Gothic, all spires and gargoyles and ghostly echoes—the sort of vast, dread edifice we sometimes build around ourselves when the lights go out.” New York Times Book Review
“Elegant prose stylist Tallis evokes both the eerie loneliness of life aboard a submarine and the pernicious creep of paranormal forces.” Kirkus Reviews
“A chilling tale of supernatural snooping. This horror story is undeniably hair-raising.” Shelf Awareness
