Publisher's Summary

Aboard the guided-missile frigate USS Turner Van Zandt, Lieutenant-Commander Dan Lenson and his dedicated crew take on a daring assignment: escort a convoy of supertankers through the mine-filled Persian Gulf.  

For Lenson and his men, however, the danger is only just beginning. When a missile from a hit-and-run enemy sinks a US destroyer, every ship and aircraft in the area goes on red alert.  

As all hands prepare for the inevitable showdown with a hostile Middle Eastern nation, Benjamin Shaker, the destroyer's hair-trigger captain, plots his own secret form of revenge. If he isn't stopped, it could mean disaster for the entire Gulf region - and maybe the world!

Surprisingly Good

I went into this with little expectations but after the first chapter I was hooked. Some story lines seemed a little weak but it made the whole experience better and added to the narrative. Plenty of Navy lingo and terms. I whole heartily enjoyed this audiobook and will listening to it again.
