Publisher's Summary

From European shores to the heart of the African jungle, Captain Riley's Pingarrón embarks on new action-packed adventures.

On their last mission, Captain Riley, his loyal crew, and his girlfriend, Carmen, bravely averted a global disaster. Now, while World War II rages on, they hope that they are on more solid ground working for the US Navy. But when a job goes awry, the team finds itself taking a treacherous journey deep into the Belgian Congo. There, within the jungle, they will come face-to-face with wild animals, cannibals, and dark forces that shroud a decades-old mystery. They defeated the terrifying Operation Apokalypse that nearly destroyed them, but can they survive this?

An almost 5 star thriller!

Darkness is Book 2 in the Captain Riley historical thriller series by Spanish author Fernando Gamboa. In this novel Captain Riley and his boat/small ship crew are serving the US government in Africa during the early stages of World War II. In the Belgium Congo they run into a particularly bad cannibal German scientist determined to develop a virus that will kill 80% of humanity. The characters are well developed. Suspense is intense at times. Overall, Darkness is a nicely told tale which I enjoyed. Narration is excellent.
