In The Dark And The Deep by Steve Vernon [ 5 stars ]




From The Description:

There are stories that are told of the sea.

This is one of them.

It was Billy McTavish's first sea voyage.

He had signed on to the serve as convoy escort on the THISTLE a Royal Canadian Navy corvette.

Through U-Boat attack and Luftwaffe bombing runs, Billy had thought he had seen all the horror that the Atlantic could offer a young Canadian sailor.

But Big Jimmy Noonan had other ideas...


Wow!! Living by the ocean I love stories about ghost ships. Rarely have I read one done so well. I loved the characters Taffy and Big Jim! My heart was in my throat and tears were in my eyes by the last line of this fabulous sea tale. A great story!! 5 stars.
