Dangerous Ground | [Larry Bond]

Dangerous Ground

The USS Memphis, a dilapidated submarine that should have been mothballed decades ago, has been given one last mission by the newly elected president. The task: To sneak illegally into Russia's coastal waters and recon the leaking nuclear fuel containers hidden on the floor of the Arctic Ocean. More than just an environmental nightmare, this radioactive burial ground houses enough nuclear capability to destroy most of America's major cities.

Publisher's Summary

The USS Memphis has been given one last mission by the newly elected president. The task: To sneak illegally into Russia's coastal waters and recon the leaking nuclear fuel containers hidden on the floor of the Arctic Ocean. More than just an environmental nightmare, this radioactive burial ground houses enough nuclear capability to destroy most of America's major cities.

The Memphis's commander, Lowell Hardy, had been looking forward to flag rank and pleasant duty upon the sub's decommissioning. Now he is trapped in an inconceivably dangerous and illegal mission that could easily end his career, if not his life and the lives of his crew. And it's the crew who feel Hardy's tension as he tyrannizes over everyone onboard in an effort to ensure they'll be ready for anything:

The submariners: Seething with rage at their Captain Bligh-like commander and the equally domineering Joanna Patterson, they are also at war with Jerry Mitchell and one another. Like the captain, they feel they deserve better, not this antiquated relic of a sub, not this hostile scientist, not this novice weapons officer, and definitely not this disastrously dangerous mission.

Nor is the mission what it seems. Lurking beneath the frigid, black, radioactive waters is a secret far more deadly than anything naval command could imagine - a secret so menacing the Russian fleet is hell-bent on destroying the Memphis and all who sail in her.

    "Slow and Average"

    I purchased this Audiobook after listening to Red Phoenix by Larry Bond, I had expected the same kind of high thrills with plenty of details story.


    However it seems as if the book just continues building and building, the last couple hours of the audio book were great the first 13 are good if you want something to put you to sleep.

    Unless you're big on technical specialties of subs don't expect a ton of thrills here.

    "Holds your interest well!"

    Another good one from Larry Bond. It started off a little slow as these kinds of books do while the back stores are fleshed out. But it holds your interest as the the story builds toward the payoff. I'm not going to get into details of the book; anyone with any knowledge of Larry Bond Is only worried about whether or not this is as good as most of his others. It is; the characters are well developed, the technology is there, and as you read you get more and more drawn in. I thoroughly enjoyed this book. Lastly the reader does a very good job; he manages to separate almost all the characters with distinctly different voices. There were a couple voices that were very close and caused a little confusion (for me). All that being said this was a great experience.

    "Good listening for guys who like war/action"

    This book has a very good story line if you like peace time espionage. It brings the dangers of submarines and there constant battle with detection. Dick Hill is the reader and if you have not listen to him before you are in for a treat,
