Tom Hamilton, a young American undercover agent, arrives in Nassau in late 1942, when German U-boats are sinking dozens of Allied merchant ships in the Caribbean. Posing as a playboy, Hamilton has been sent by his Washington bosses to investigate Nils Ericsson, a Swedish industrialist with known ties to the Nazis, whom he suspects is building a case for the U-boat fleet in Hurricane Hole. Hamilton falls in love with a beautiful Englishwoman, Evelyn Shawcross, but with her affiliation to both Ericsson and the Duke of Windsor, wartime Governor of the Bahamas, his operation to foil the plot proves hazardous and deadly. Master storyteller John Kerr's Hurricane Hole is a gripping combination of espionage and tragic love, set against the backdrop of the tropical Bahamas and the celebrated murder of Sir Harry Oakes, the wealthiest man in the British Empire.
