Nimitz Class Publisher's Summary

It's as big as the Empire State Building, a massive floating fortress at the throbbing heart of a US Navy carrier battle group. Its supersonic aircraft can level entire cities at a stroke. Its surveillance gear can track every target within thousands of square miles - in the air, on the surface, and under the sea. Its crew of 6,000 works night and day to keep this awesome military machine at peak performance. It's a Nimitz-class nuclear carrier, the most powerful weapons system on the planet. Nothing can touch it.

So when the first stunned messages say only that the Thomas Jefferson has disappeared, the navy reacts with disbelief. But as her battered escorts report in, the truth becomes inescapable: a Nimitz-class carrier has been claimed by nuclear catastrophe - the mightiest military unit on earth, vaporized without warning by an accidental detonation of unimaginable power. No other explanation is possible.

But as navy maverick Bill Baldridge begins to investigate the disaster that claimed his idolized brother's life, another chilling alternative begins to emerge from the high-tech web of fleeting sonar contacts and elusive radar blips. It points to a rogue submarine commanded by a world-class undersea warrior with the steely nerve and cunning of a master spy. Suddenly it's up to Bill Baldridge to track down this shadowy nuclear terrorist who has already turned America's ultimate weapon into the biggest sitting duck in history - and who still has another nuclear-tipped torpedo in his tubes. He's already proved he has the icy ruthlessness to incinerate 6,000 sailors without a qualm. What will he do for an encore?

In this audio the modern military springs to life, from the Pentagon's tense conferences to the screaming flight deck of a giant carrier to the silent conning tower of an attack sub on full alert. But as Bill Baldridge races against time to pursue the nation's most deadly enemy, we are forced to ask ourselves serious real-life questions: Have defense budget cuts jeopardized our national security? Are we prepared to defend ourselves against naval terrorists? How safe are we?

Nimitz Class is a world-class technothriller with a plot as riveting as The Hunt for Red October - and an explosive twist out of tomorrow's headlines.

Today it's a novel. Tomorrow it might be the news.

    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.

    Armed with stolen US military technology, the Chinese are producing a frightening new breed of weaponry, led by the ICBM submarine Xia III - a vessel that just might be able to launch a nuclear warhead across the Pacific Ocean and take out an American West Coast city. National security adviser Admiral Arnold Morgan can't let that happen, and he dispatches the most stealthy hunter-killer submarine in the US fleet, the 9,000-ton ultrasecret Seawolf, deep into the dark, forbidden waters of the South China Sea.

    An oil tanker mysteriously explodes in the Persian Gulf. Then a second...and a third. To the president's national security adviser, Admiral Arnold Morgan, it is more than a tragic coincidence - it is a brazen act of aggression that must not stand. In partnership with Iran, the Chinese navy has mined the Strait of Hormuz, intending to hold the world's oil supply hostage. Now 80 percent of America's active sea power is being mobilized - including USS Shark, an aging nuclear submarine on its final tour of duty.

    Moscow and Argentina form a devastating secret alliance to control the territory - and the oil rights - of the Falkland Islands. The United States is furious at this act of international piracy - and the fact that their largest oil giant owns those same rights. Under the stern eye of Admiral Morgan, the Navy SEALs bring in legendary Commander Rick Hunter. Their mission is to hammer Argentina's military and free the Falklands. For the fabled Hunter, the assignment strikes close to home.
