Unfortunately, despite the author s previous two books being pretty good, this third book is another book where I found the main premise to be completely unbelievable That really made the whole story not work for me, so I didn t enjoy this book The writing was OK, but the characters weren t particularly well drawn, so sometimes I had a difficult time trying to keep track of who was who I wouldn t really recommend this book, even to someone who is interested in submarines there are much bett Unfortunately, despite the author s previous two books being pretty good, this third book is another book where I found the main premise to be completely unbelievable That really made the whole story not work for me, so I didn t enjoy this book The writing was OK, but the characters weren t particularly well drawn, so sometimes I had a difficult time trying to keep track of who was who I wouldn t really recommend this book, even to someone who is interested in submarines there are much better books out there Intense to the very endThis book sort of reminded me a little bit of the movie Crimson Tide Although the stories are different the edge of your seat non stop drama adding in the fact that each side sank another s sub Tensions are extremely high throughout Makes you wonder if stuff like this really did happen.

Standoff political suspenseNot really a torpedo or submarine story The almost mutual world destruction scenario could have been with land based missiles or bomber aircraft Still an entertaining read. If You Lived During The 21st Century, This Is Have To ReadWell written historical fiction that could be be really happened, AND NEARLY DID If you don t read this you will regret it for the rest of your life. An exciting submarine duelFrom start to end the plot is cleverly crafted to keep you guessing what might happen next The submariners are clearly a force to be recognized. Scary scenarioIt well could of happened, or something similar that we were never told the truth about The unknown cause of the submarines Scorpion, and Thrashed come to mind.
