May 1941. At four in the morning, a rust-streaked tramp freighter steams up the Tagus River to dock at the port of Lisbon. She is the Santa Rosa, she flies the flag of neutral Spain and is in Lisbon to load cork oak, tinned sardines, and drums of cooking oil bound for the Baltic port of Malmö. But she is not the Santa Rosa. She is the Noordendam, a Dutch freighter. Under the command of Captain Eric DeHaan, she sails for the Intelligence Division of the British Royal Navy, and she will load detection equipment for a clandestine operation on the Swedish coast -- a secret mission, a dark voyage.

Furst is second to none in his ability to turn the history of the Second World War into prose drama. In "Dark Voyage," the climax of the novel, in which a ship flying the Netherlands' flag fights off a boarding party from the German navy, is one of the most exciting page-turners I have read.
