When a terrorist bomb explodes in Boston's Logan Airport, Admiral Arnold Morgan, the president's most trusted advisor, moves quickly to break the cell in the United States and ship the Islamic fanatics to Guantanamo Bay. In response, the Hamas high command, meeting in Gaza, hatches a vicious plan to assassinate the admiral the minute he leaves the United States. Desperate to protect the admiral at all costs, the president must summon the most dangerous Navy Seal team that the USA has to offer.

If you like books about submarines, (and I do ) you simply must read Monteith. Every book in the "Rogue " series is hard to put down. The characters are very well defined. The plots are quite interesting, and close to being timeless. If the stories are examined they will prove to be believable.

The first time I read this book (or listened on Audible) I may have been unkind. I wasn't feeling well that day and I don't remember what I said. This is by FAR the best submarine novel I have ever read/heard. I t beats "The Hunt for Red October " which is a great read. I would or I wish this to become a Big Screen movie ! I believe that it would play for quite a while !

Russia's new ballistic missile submarine, Yuriy Dolgorukiy, is being deployed on its first patrol while America's newest fast-attack submarine, North Dakota, is assigned to trail it and collect intel. As the Russian submarine heads under the polar ice cap, its sonar readings reveal the trailing American sub and cause the Russians to begin a radical evasive maneuver. This, however, fails, and the submarines collide, resulting in damage that sends both to the bottom.

Occasionally this story can become tedious . The sheer level of detail drives that in my opinion. You may want to read it more than once in order to understand all the nuances . I feel as if I have been on the North Dakota.

if you have ever read a Clive Cussler book, then you probably have read about Dirk Pitt.
there are two of them now ; Dirk senior, and Dirk junior. Both of them pretty much are the same. You will always have an old restored classic automobile. Clive Cussler (yes .. the author) will make a "cameo appearance " as himself . The supporting characters will be the same as well ; Rudi Gunn, Al Giordino, Admiral Sandecker, a certain Congress woman, and I believe one more which escapes me right now. But it is very good writing, all about NUMA which I think stands for National Underwater & Maritime Association. (it may be Marine instead of Maritime etc. it's not defined in every book ... unless I missed it ) Very Very good to read IF YOU LIKE MYSTERIES WITH AN UNDERWATER TWIST. Try it and SEE. ! ! !

A left-leaning judge liberates four of the most dangerous al-Qaeda terrorists from Guantanamo Bay and the CIA field officers track them back to Pakistan's northwest frontier mountain range. But the men vanish and rejoin the dark and mysterious forces trained by Osama bin Laden high in the Hindu Kush. These are men with hatred for the United States and Great Britain, and they are sworn to hit back at the USA, which imprisoned so many of their high command.

It takes a while to get going, but the story goes into character deinition for some time. It's a good plot and it also has some comedy entertwinined, as the terrorists do some goofy things as they move across our country .This is the first time I have heard or read about what they may face just getting somewhere.

A military revolt in southeastern Russia puts a former hard-line Soviet leader in command of a ballistic missile submarine and its arsenal of nuclear weapons. His goal: re-ignite the communist revolution, and recapture the might and glory of the fallen Soviet Union. Without warning, Russia, Japan, and the United States become hostages in a scheme of international nuclear blackmail. When the warheads start falling and people begin dying, no one can pretend that it's a bluff.

The Chinese dragon is flexing its muscles. As its military begins to prey on neighbors in the South China Sea, attacking fishing vessels and scheming to seize natural resources, the US goes on high alert. But a far more ominous danger lurks closer to home: a Chinese sleeper cell has planted a nuclear weapon in the harbor at Norfolk, Virginia, the biggest naval base on the planet. The target: a secret rendezvous of the Atlantic Fleet aircraft carriers and their battle groups.
