2815 Secret Missions, by Michael Gannon (read 31 Dec 1995) This is the fictional story of Paul Krug, a saboteur who landed in Florida from a submarine, kills a fisherman, and Paul Ohlenberg, a Catholic boy who is the son of a man working for Germany, helps bury the body. Paul confesses to Father Tony D'Angelo, and off we go--much discussion of the seal of the confessional, and fantastic encounters between Father Tony and Paul Krug. All ends happily. It really is pulp fiction, but a thrill and joy to read. ( )

Amazon.com Amazon.com Review (ISBN 0061092398, Paperback)

Historians don't often make good fiction writers, but Michael Gannon's spy novel, Secret Missions, is an entertaining and erudite story set in Florida during the Second World War. An expert on U-boat warfare and the author of Operation Drumbeat and Black May, Gannon makes good use of his knowledge in this tale of a German agent attempting to gather information on the capabilities of American warplanes. The characters are all well drawn, especially the Catholic priest, Father D'Angelo, who learns a vital secret in his confessional but, per the rules of his church, can't reveal the details to anybody. --John J. Miller
