THE DEEP ATLANTIC
a novel by Peter Dillon
The coasts of Mayo and Donegal provide the backdrop to a riveting new thriller in which an ex-IRA man discovers a German U-boat on the ocean floor.
Packed with suspense, The Deep Atlantic has action, Nazi secrets, and a little romance, woven into a believable story with contemporary relevance.
The Deep Atlantic opens during World War II with an RAF Sunderland flying boat taking off from Lough Erne to attack a U-boat in the Atlantic. This opening chapter sets the highly authentic tone that pervades this book.
Decades later, starting with a chance discovery in the nets of a trawler in the isolated fishing port of Killybegs, it is ex-IRA man Jack Duggan who unlocks the U-boat's Nazi secrets.
Unknown to Duggan, who runs a small diving and shipping company in Westport, Co Mayo, his efforts to gain entry to the U-boat attract the attention of MI5, putting his life in grave danger.
Peter Dillon's page-turning tale of adventure and political intrigue will haul you from the cold green waters of the Atlantic Ocean through the silent corridors of the sunken U-boat and right to the top of the British and United States governments.
“A terrific Thriller. Reads like the author knows his diving.”
"This is a good fast-paced thriller with a multi-layered plot that keeps the reader gripped."
