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.
