Publisher's Summary

As USS Teuthis Saturation Dive Team Officer-in-Charge (OIC) Mac McDowell leads his submarine team laying SOSUS arrays under the Arctic ice, they capture an abandoned fully automated Alfa-class Soviet sub. Piloting their prize through the ice pack to the US East Coast, they must evade or confront other Soviet subs trying to recover the sub — or sink it. 

Breathtaking deep-sea clashes erupt, including hand-to-hand combat with Soviet Morskoy Spetsnaz divers under the ice. Too far from Teuthis to escape, the Americans are accosted by a five ton orca. Will Mac’s ship survive long enough to reach friendly waters, or will the men become just another meal for a deadly whale?

A third Mac McDowell mission and one for the books

Having already read the book itself I was able to focus on the performance that Mister Bennett gives and I have to say it's excellent. Subtle inflections differentiate characters as much as accents do. One thing I especially love about the performance is... how do I say this, the humor in Mister Bennett's voice when the characters are amused feels real.

As before, the added sound effects and musical cues make a nice atmospheric addition to the experience. For instance when someone is speaking on a phone, usually a Gertrude (basically an underwater telephone), the modulation or distortion (I don't know quite how to describe it) makes you feel like it's a phone conversation rather than two people face to face.

As I state in my review of the book, I love this book. I think it's a must read, as are the two previous entries in the series, and I cannot wait for more from Mac. But I'll leave this review by saying this: without spoiling it, the ending is a real knock out!
