About this Book



Taut with suspense and pounding with battle scenes. Thriller

This is Furst's 8th novel exploring the shadowy world of espionage in World War II.  Library Journal writes that 'Furst subtly evokes the emotional and mental highs that resided at that time, even within the most ordinary and anonymous of citizens. Fans will not be disappointed by this spare but never terse adventure tale'.  Publishers Weekly describes Dark Voyage as 'arguably his finest performance to date'.  As always you can browse an excerpt and form your own opinion.
