(1983)
A novel by

 
 
Captains Island: 1942 . . . For the sleepy little fishing village in Casco Bay, war was just a distant rumbling. Life went on pretty much as usual while their giant sixteen-inch guns guarded the convoys leaving Portland, Maine. Only Tom Heiden, a young American security officer, was uneasy - they were vulnerable to attack.

Nobody seemed ready to listen . . . and then a stranger named Ryker showed up.

But John Ryker - who seemed as safe as the man next door - was a killer, an American-born mercenary and Germany's most valued secret agent. He had served the Reich faithfully and well behind enemy lines in France, Poland, Norway. This time the assignment was different: to return to the place of his birth as the leader of a Nazi commando team. Their mission: capture an army base off the coast of Maine! This time Ryker would strike the blow that would destroy his native land. . . The Casco Deception.
