Publisher's Summary

It's one of the stealthiest, most dangerous underwater warships ever built - and it's about to set off World War III. Silent at less than five knots and capable of a massive nuclear warhead punch, it's the 240-foot Russian Kilo-class submarine.

Strapped for hard cash, the Russians have produced 10 new Kilos for Beijing. The Chinese have already received three of the subs, and now the last seven are ready to be delivered - a code-red situation the Pentagon must avert. Armed with a full strike force of Kilos, China can cripple American interests, shatter the balance of power, and successfully achieve the unthinkable in the Pacific Rim. But not if the newly appointed national security advisor, wily Texas admiral Arnold Morgan, can stop them - using the navy's deadliest covert forces.

In a breathtaking race against time, a team of Navy SEALs penetrates deep inside the remote waters of Northern Russia on a daring mission of destruction. And in the icy darkness of the North Atlantic, a brave US captain takes his 7,000-ton nuclear vessel on a hair-raising trip beneath the polar ice cap to head off a powerful Russian cordon determined to transport the Kilos at any cost. Horns locked in a tense game of geomilitary survival, each of the world's three most powerful nations knows that one mistake will mean all-out war.

A real grabber

It is my opinion that there exists no greater writer of books in this genre than Patrick Robinson and certainly no greater narrator than the supremely talented George Guidall. The combination of those two talents is the happiest of accidents and a supreme gift to all who can enjoy and appreciate them. One measure of a book I use is how much I wish the story would never end. KILO CLASS is such a work. Too bad there is no 6th or 7th star.

One of the two best titles by the author

Captivating with plenty of action. Multiple storie lines within the book led by well well-built, towering characters. And just when you thought everything has been accomplished and the book is going to end the author takes you deep for another mission.

Second won't be the last

George Guidall can make a fair book good and in this case made a good book great.
I will continue on with enthusiasm with this series but must say that I am already sad that the entire trip will not be with Mr. Guidall...George you are the best!!

Intense!!!!!!!

I wasn't sure how the author would tie the story together but he did. It was intense and fun. I debated how believable the story was but listening to commentary at the end made me rethink the whole story and wonder how much is based on reality. Well done and great performance. Looking forward to the next one.

This book is a solid BUY! Fun listen.

I’m 50/50 on good book purchases. Sometimes I wonder why people post a good review on an overly character building story that is empty of the meat of a story. This is not the case as this book balances characters and action. I love the mix of political pride vs what the military can an will do. I enjoyed this book cover to cover.

The story continues

The story weaves its self around a bit, but as usual, all falls into place and make sense. George is the best at his voices and helps the listener know the characters. Admiral Arnold Morgan is the glue to the book. Morgan out!

Today's Fiction, Tomorrow's Reality!

Patrick Robinson has done it again! From the moment that I started listening to this book, I only stopped to eat and sleep. The plot of this book is so close to reality, it's scary. With China building up it's presence in the South China Sea, this book could be happening now. Sit back and hang on, because this book will keep you on the edge of your seat. Larry S Reno, NV.
