SHADOW OF THE WOLF by Michael Parker
A island off the north coast of Scotland under the Nazi jackboot as Hitler’s storm troopers search for a missing U-boat captain and the secret to Britain’s centimetric radar.
The islanders, remnants of a once thriving whaling community, know of the existence of the submarine commander from a pre-war association but deny that existence. Schafer knows they are lying and his search for the secrets to Britain’s new weapon unravels a patchwork of intrigue, guilt and shame.
In a shattering race against time all that stands between success and failure for Schafer is the tenacious courage of two young people, Billy and Ailie, and an old whale catching boat, the Nordcaper.
