I don't know the author, but let me tell you he has a wonderful style of writing about (in this case) a war time adventure with hardly a shot fired !
The merchant marine endeavors during a world war is not an easy tale to tell and still weave in a a adventure story with hero's and villains, strong and weak personalities, and a pace that keeps the pages turning.
Also, the book is written with nautical excellence, yet not boring to landlubbers !
The books key personalities are very real, with all the expected human frailties of life, especially of that era.
Good read !
