Modelled on official reports, the action of this story occupies eight hours of a Sunday night/Monday morning in early autumn of 1943. The German U-boat supply ship, Heilbronne, is sailing heavily escorted from Le Havre to the Atlantic, and a mixed force of motor gunboats and motor torpedo boats from Newhaven in Sussex is ordered to intercept and sink her. But this is also a story about people. Such as, Ben Quarry, the Australian navigator of MGB 875, whose girlfriend Rosie is an SOE agent, and the CO, Bob Stack, whose wife is having an affair with a fellow officer. So as dawn breaks across the Sussex Downs and the survivors of the flotillas limp home, many issues remain to be resolved.

Alexander Fullerton is the author of The Nicholas Everard series and the SOE series.From AudioFile:
A mixed force of gunboats and torpedo boats from Sussex roars out of England in early 1943 to sink the German U-boat supply ship HEILBRONNE, which is attempting to slip from one harbor to another on the occupied European continent. By itself this makes exciting listening, and it doesn't hurt when a love story or two is thrown into the mix. Historical accuracy and technical detail appear high, too. Christopher Kay possesses a fortunate mix of English accent and perfect diction -- his voice is warm, he cares, he projects us onto the scene. Hard to beat, this one.
