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.

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!!

Just did not like it !

The. Writer makes the USA seem like a bully. They keep shooting down subs . It just is not a good storyline . Guidall is magnificent ! He kept me enjoying the story . But I did not like the whole idea of sneak attacks - black opps or not!
