A war story that reads like the best kind of thriller, Deadly Seas is a unique collaboration by a Canadian and a German that sets the record straight for both sides." - from the dj. "In the boiler room, stokers rush to flash the two after boilers. The old destroyer slowly builds a head of steamand races eastward into the darkening sky. Dobson is going in for the kill . "If that bastard's still afloat," he says between clenched teeth, "he'll be back at periscope depth by the time we get there." St. Croix is slicing through the Atlantic at 24 knots. "Contact dead ahead, sir, range 1200 yards," Gallaher shouts. Once again, the lethal cat-and-mouse game pitting destroyer against U-boat captain begins. Death to the loser." -from the prologue.
