Publisher's Summary

They stole his future. He stole their submarine.

The accident changed everything...One moment, Lieutenant Jake Slate was going about his duties aboard the ballistic missile submarine, USS Colorado. The next second, he was sprawled on the deck plates in a spreading puddle of blood and hydraulic fluid. But it wasn't the injury that ruined his life and doomed his military career. It was the rescue effort.

Now he's being thrown to the wolves to cover up the misdeeds of a superior officer, and Jake doesn't care for the role of sacrificial lamb.

Blinded by rage and unsure of his future, he finds himself at the center of a treacherous plot to hijack the Colorado and sell her nuclear warheads to a foreign power. Jake no longer knows who he can trust. He doesn't know what the future holds. He really only knows one thing. He will have his revenge.

Reader needs acting lessons

Story is very technically accurate. Its a good story it just needs more info on the supporting characters so you feel for them also. Overall good story. The performance is below average.

Not very good

The book has a pretty good story for a basis, but the author fails to pull it off. The details are not very interesting and poorly written. And much of the action aboard the nuclear submarine seems very implausible. I will not be purchasing another book by this author.
The narration was just okay, not as good as most books I’ve listened to.

I hope it's not that easy to hijack a sub

But aside from that single premise, very believable, and enjoyable. Not unlike other good novels.

Great intense read.

This story is very well written and told. The audacious actions are boldly described and characters are very well defined. Imagine the actual theft of a US nuclear submarine. What can you say once that concept is described ? Even though the theft is in real life much more difficult if not impossible, it's fun to think about it. (some submariners may find it interesting, but implausible ) I have very much enjoyed the book.

Decent start to the series...

Enjoyable and we'll written but would benefit from more technical info, and detail in general, when it comes to the submarine warfare.

I found the reader somewhat robotic initially but it didn't take too long to get used to that.

Having finished the first, I will definitely continue listening to this series.
