When sixteen-year-old Scott and his friend Adam find summer jobs as deckhands on the Rapids Prince, little do they know what lies in store. It is July 1943, and a German agent is rumored to have landed in Canada from U-boat. Curtis Parkinson uses this true historical event to take the reader on a rollicking ride down the St. Lawrence River, through the Long Sault Rapids, to the streets of Old Montreal. When the boys get wind of a possible bomb aboard the Rapids Prince, they go into high gear to search the ship and save the innocent passangers. But is there time?
Curtis Parkinson has written an impossible-to-put-down novel that combines history with high adventure.
