Overview
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--and a British submarine commander, Sutherland, and a Norwegian academic, Professor Bjornar 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...

The claustrophobic confines of a German submarine provide the setting for this less than successful supernatural thriller from Tallis (The Voices). Somewhere in the North Atlantic during WWII, Kapitänleutnant Siegfried Lorenz, the commander of U-330, surfaces his vessel amid some ice floes. He and his crew witness an eerie sighta raft with two corpses, one frozen upright, their features eaten away by gulls. Meanwhile, the SS orders Lorenz to Iceland to take custody of two prisoners: a British naval officer, Lt. Cmdr. Lawrence Sutherland, and a Norwegian academic, Bjørnar Grimstad. They succeed in getting the two men aboard, but en route to Brest the Englishman somehow gets hold of a gun and takes both his life and that of his fellow captive. After the bloodshed, Lorenz, a dutiful officer in the tradition of Das Boot, finds himself haunted by visions of the dead. After the intriguing premise, the book falls short, with genuine scares few and far between. Agent: Clare Alexander, Aitken Alexander Associates (U.K.). (Feb.)
