" Six hundred miles off the coast of Ireland the night was black like the depths of a mine, disappearing into the calm, opaque sea. It was there that the fog struck."
The Valkyrie, a German ship, was discovered adrift in 1939 with one passenger aboard, a baby boy named Isaac Feldman. Years later, Feldman wants to solve the mystery of where he actually came from and what happened all of those years ago. He is determined to recreate the Valkyrie's last voyage and will spend any amount of money to do so. He brings together a team of experts to help him on his quest. Kate Kilroy is a reporter who accepts an assignment to be part of this voyage and soon realizes that she is in over her head. The ship seems to have its own agenda.
There were definitely parts of this book that I could not put down. I found some of the reading a little bit difficult, but that could have been in the translation. I am squeamish about graphic gore scenes, but they seemed to move the plot along. The sex scenes, also somewhat explicit, were probably interwoven better than many books attempt to do.
I found there were quite a few characters that I had to keep track of, and the lack of character development in parts made that difficult. Yet something kept pulling me back to this book and kept me wondering what was happening. I definitely recommend it to those who enjoy ghost stories, Nazi stories and even those like me, who just like to explore other genres once in a while.
