Night Crossing by Robert Ryan Review $120 In 1938, Ulrike Walter, a beautiful young German musician, is engaged to Erich Hinkel, a member of the Hitler Youth. But when she meets Inspector Cameron Ross, a Scotland Yard policeman, whose father is a colonel in British intelligence, her life is changed forever. When war is declared, Ulrike flees Germany for the safety of England, but is cruelly imprisoned as an enemy alien. Her only hope of rescue is Cameron, who, despite his better judgment, is falling in love with her. Then, Erich is captured by the British and incarcerated in a prisoner of war camp in England. He faces interrogation by Cameron, the one man who stands between him and Ulrike, the woman who means more to Erich than life itself. Part thriller and part love story, Ryan captures the hardships and humanity of war and explores whether compassion can triumph over murder and betrayal.
