An excellent Sean Dillon story. Its about German U-boats and something called the Windsor Protocol signed by the Duke of Windsor. Get it and read about it, you will not be sorry.

In this thrilling tale that combines World War II espionage with contemporary politics, Higgins proposes that Nazi lieutenant Martin Bormann escaped Allied forces in 1945 and made his way in a U-boat to South America, along with a notebook listing U.S. and British Nazi sympathizers. One of the names in the notebook happens to be the Duke of Windsor. In 1992, a diver in the Caribbean finds the wreck of the vessel, and word gets back to the British authorities that the notebook is still onboard. Irish terrorist Sean Dillon is recruited to retrieve the item, but he's not the only one interested: a notorious drug dealer with Parliamentary connections is also in on the hunt. The involving story unfolds rapidly across two continents as the rivals race to secure the momentous prize. Helped immeasurably by Dillon's fascinating character the tension builds to an enthralling climax.

As you can see, after "Cold Harbour", I went on to listen to this one too. Seems like I get on a particular "Author", and get everything I can listen to! OK - this little gem was well worth the listen! Put yourself back in the 60's frame of mind! Let's see what this book gives us - start with a sunken German U-Boat, a lush tropical location (the Virgin Islands), sharks (the swimming kind and the walking kind), seaplanes, exploding yachts, villains, henchmen, and (for the ladies) a love interest. What more could you ask for? The main premise of this tale revolves around once IRA guman, Sean Dillon who has been persuaded to work for the British Government and rescue sensitive documents from a sunken U-Boat. Bad Boy turns Good! Hey, release reality, stop looking for verifiable facts - this is the stuff of Cotton Candy - you can't explain how it's made, you just know you like it! So, sit back and put the headphones on and - Like it!
