Overview

On the eve of WWII, American artist Jack Martin sails his small boat from England to the Frisian Islands pursuing the beautiful Britta. Easy-going, apolitical, womanizer, Jack is shaken from his complacency by the brutality of Hitler's Gestapo. Unable to ignore the Nazi brutality, he lashes out against a group of Hitlerjugend bullying Jews, fights a duel with a German officer, and is thrown into Dachau. There he witnesses bone-chilling savagery. America is not yet at war with Germany, and the American Embassy secures Jack's release. He escapes the horrors of Dachau and joins a fledgling resistance group. He is called upon to assassinate German officers, blow up a troop train, guide allied bombers to ammunition depots, and to rescue downed allied flyers. But when he and his companion, René are called to lead French farmers to liberate a German concentration camp, he is unsure if his newly found strengths and abilities are up to the task.

RUNNING IN DARKNESS is a fast-paced WWII thriller that will capture readers with wartime atrocities and defining moments of human character that will haunt them long after the final page.
