“A well-constructed plot intertwines tense words and wild actions as the Nazi regime relentlessly pursues Lemmon and his girlfriend. The characters are real and believable, with a clear delineation between good and evil. Corridors of Darkness is a fast paced, suspenseful tale with plenty of twists and turns to keep the reader on edge. The writing is immediate and engaging as the pages fly by.” – Paul Hollis, Awesome Indies Reviewer
Two desperate fugitives face a nightmarish pursuit across the Third Reich, where violence and deception are tools of the trade, and torture and death wait at every turn… 1930’s Berlin–unrestrained, decadent, torn by political and social strife–and dashing Ryan Lemmon intends to make the most of every moment. The young American reporter loses himself in the dark underbelly of the capital, only to have a violent death bring him face-to-face with the growing menace.
As Hitler’s stranglehold grips the nation, Ryan becomes involved with a spirited German blonde, but her relationship with a sadistic Nazi powerhouse puts them both at risk of an agonizing end. Having already lost one friend to Nazi brutality, Ryan and his former flame must now escape the all-powerful Gestapo. And she agrees to steal intelligence which can save the lives of millions, but only if it reaches the right hands in Washington. Inspired by the contemporary journals of the author’s late father, Corridor of Darkness evokes the cruel heart of pre-World War II Germany, where any missed beat could be the protagonists’ last. Corridor of Darkness features an excerpt from the second novel in the Ryan Lemmon series, Beacon of Vengeance.
“We come to know the characters so well, that we care deeply about them. Their fear becomes our fear, their horror, ours. The skilfully executed prose brings you right into the vibrant beating heart of Berlin in the thirties. I could smell it, see it and taste it.
Plot wise, the book is gripping; the pacing is steady and speeds up at the end to a dramatic conclusion. Not quite what I was hoping for, but well done and with hope for the future.” – Tahlia Newland, Awesome Indies Creative Director
