Summary (From the publisher):

Zero hour, July 1943. The Mediterranean island of Sicily is the key to the imminent Allied invasion of Europe. It is defended by a large German Army. Limitless Nazi reinforcements can be brought in by a single train ferry from Italy.

Major Petrie lands with a fellow saboteur, Ed Johnson, an American, at Palermo. Together they are on a secret mission - to sink the ferry. Alone in hostile territory, they encounter the SS, the Gestapo and the German Army in their desperate bid to reach the heavily guarded ferry.

They haven't a remote hope of succeeding without local aid. So they call on the support of the Mafia underground movement. But can they trust the Mafia?
