Publisher's Summary

Hannah Bryson is a marine architect who's been given a fascinating assignment. A Russian nuclear submarine called The Silent Thunder has been purchased by the United States for exhibition in a museum. Hannah must create a schematic of the sub to check for hazards and design seamless modifications to make it safe for the thousands of expected visitors.

Her brother, Connor, acting as her assistant, knows how much this work means to Hannah. But Connor discovers something on the sub: a mysterious message hidden behind one of the panels. And then, in a brutal assault on the sub, Connor is murdered and the chase is on for Hannah to find her brother's killer.

Soon she discovers that she's being used as bait. And what she doesn't even realize she knows could end her life as well.

    "Magnificent1"

    I really enjoyed this read. The book was suspensful and exciting. This was my first time listening to this particular narrator and I was really pleased. She did a wonderful job and kept the book alive. I did not want to turn my MP3 player off. Job well done

    "Loved this book!"

    I listen to books on my morning walks and I found myself cheating and listening even if I was not walking. I will definitely look for more from these people.

    "Bullwinkle"

    this was a poor clive cussler wannabee; one of the characters said early on "this isn't a clancy novel". although the narrator was good, the constant boris and natasha voices made me wonder when rocky and bullwinkle would appear

    "Hannah Bryson: all fluff (as read)"

    This was my first Iris Johanson novel. My son got to read a NY Times Best-Seller for his high school English class and I decided to see what one of those books was all about and listened to it as he read the print version.
    I found the plot line fairly predictable once a new character was introduced to thicken the plot. It was entertaining enough but I found the reader to be extremely annoying. I think because it was a woman voicing the dialogue that was overwhelmingly men. Not only that but I found the accents to be rather fakey. However, the most important annoying thing, by far, was that Hannah Bryson was read to be rather fluffy and overly "feminine." I wanted to hear her as strong and cerebral; an analytical problem solver. All I heard was this wimpy, breathy voice. It made me crazy to have to listen to it (and in my mind, I kept putting the stong female voice to it after I heard the words in that "wimpy woman" voice). Even SIL Kathy was voiced to be a stronger, less wispy, voice than Hannah!
    Of all that books that I've listened to, this was the only one that was annoying because of the reader-- and was the only one that I 1) considered just quitting 2/3 of the way through and 2) that I was very happy to have DONE.
