I have read all of Brian Ratty's books. A great combination of reading ease and historical content. His latest, "Atonement" is true to form. I highly recommend Mr. Ratty's books. Do yourself a favor. Start from his early books and enjoy the whole menu of his works.

An unforgettable voyage of reconciliation… Much transpires within the pages of this gripping tale... a treasure chest of beautiful descriptive lines… Ratty takes his hero on the voyage of his life and brings him full circle in a monumental ending. ‘Voyage of Atonement’ is truly a captivating piece of historical fiction… brilliantly written and an impressive read.

Voyage of Atonement: The Tainted Treasure by Brian D. Ratty is a seafaring adventure story with plenty of twists and turns, surprises, drama, intrigue, and even romance. Voyage of Atonement is a great book for sea lovers and adventure readers alike… I thought the writing style was engaging and the author obviously knows a lot about the world and the era in which the story is primarily set… All in all, an enjoyable read.

I've just finished reading "Voyage of Atonement", the third book in his wonderful Dutch Clarke series. A true high-seas adventure beginning with a Nazi U-boat escaping from Germany close to the end of World War II with a top-secret cargo. The story progresses with Dutch and a war buddy, Doug, sailing a small boat across the Pacific from the Columbia River in the 1960s
After a tremendous time in their east-ward journey, Dutch and his crew come into possession of the submarine mentioned earlier. After determining that he wants to bring this WWII relic all the way back across the Pacific to the USA, thus begins an ocean crossing that can only be described as epic.
