"Germany faces final defeat in 1944. Across 5,000 miles of wild Atlantic dominated by Allied navies, twenty-two men and five nuns aboard the barquentine 'Deutschland' are battling home to Kiel ... A U-boat ace captured captured in a desperate raid on Falmouth; an American girl doctor caught in the nightmare of the Flying Bombs; a gunboat commander who's fought from the Solomons to the Channel; a rear admiral who itches to get back into action: Allies and enemies, men and women, the hunters and the hunted [are] drawn inexorably into the eye of the storm." *** "The members of a German crew find themselves at the mercy of fierce storms and the British navy when they attempt to cross the Atlantic in a nineteenth-century sailing vessel in the midst of World War II."

I'd never read any Jack Higgins and found this lying around a beach house, so picked it up and started reading; terrifically well paced with well delineated characters. Read full review

Review: Storm Warning

User Review  - Eric Mccutcheon - Goodreads

Not too exciting until the last hundred pages. Very typical characters from this author. Easy to read but probably going to be easy to forget. Read full review

About the author (2000)

Since The Eagle Has Landed--one of the biggest-selling thrillers of all time--every novel Jack Higgins has written, including his most recent works, has become an international bestseller. He has had simultaneous number one bestsellers in hardcover and paperback, and many of his books have been made into successful movies, among them The Eagle Has Landed, To Catch a King, On Dangerous Ground, Eye of the Storm, and Thunder Point.

Higgins, who lived in Belfast until he was twelve, had several close calls with bombs and gunfire at an early age. After leaving school at fifteen, he served three years with the Royal Horse Guards in Eastern Europe during the Cold War. Subsequently, he was a circus roustabout, a factory worker, a truck driver, and a laborer, before entering college at age twenty-seven. He has degrees in sociology, social psychology, and economics from the University of London, and a doctorate in media from Leeds Metropolitan University.

A fellow of the Royal Society of Arts, and an expert scuba diver and marksman, Jack Higgins lives on Jersey in the Channel Islands.
