As the U.S. Navy searches for weapons-grade plutonium that has been smuggled by terrorists out of Russia, a submarine mishap in the Black Sea brings the United States and Russia to the brink of nuclear war. It is a race against the clock, with Russian missiles activated and programmed for American cities.

A different narrator.
No. The narrator has a strong English accent which is perfect for Dickens or Alexander McCall Smith, but absolutely atrocious for a book about the U.S. navy. His American accents are laughable, and the Russian, Checnyan and Egyptians all sounded the same; I couldn't tell who was speaking.
Dylan Baker would be good, or Peter Giles.
I didn't finish it, so I can't say.
Burning it and starting over after either serving on subs or researching them.
All of them
I could only make it through about 20 mins of this before I deleted it. Easily the worst submarine thriller ever written. There are glaring technical mistakes such as saying the 688's have "propellers" they only have 1 and they're called "screws" in the Navy. Also, you do not fire "torps" in the Navy. When firing a torpedo or "fish" you refer to firing the tube said fish is in. Also, people in the navy cuss, a lot. No cussing whatsoever? I read other reviews of this book on another site and found that its published by a super right wing christian publisher and apparently thats evident the deeper you go into the book. I never made it that far. Avoid! There are far better sub thriller authors out there.
I would cut the entire book.
Poorly written Christian zealtory, in the form of an adventure story.
Love to read and audible is a great way to do that almost any place. Retired Computer Analyst living on the beach.
Loved the story good theme, good story.
All was great the story has a good line and keeps you waiting for the next section
No, NEVER, NOT EVER AGAIN. HE speaks bristish English with an American book ti just does not fit. Does not truly understand American English and it way of saying things. Most absurb redention of southern person speaking. His reading was so poor had to leave story several times to rest listen to something else then come back again.
Life as a submariner involved in a cat and mouse chase where sometimes your the Cat and other times your the Mouse against a global threat.
The story started out very slow, but it did build up. But what annoyed me in the extreme was using a British narrator for what was suppose to be an American Naval drama. James Adams barely tried to use an American accent and he used all the British pronunciations for words like schedule. It detracted from the whole book.
I liked his other books better.
Only if the story was set in Britain
Yes for both
It was a nice afternoon entertainment on our way to another state.
