It is the dawn of a new era of peace and global cooperation. For the first time ever, the premier of the Peoples Republic of China is joining the U.S. President and the worlds top leaders for the G-7 summit aboard the most majestic ocean liner afloat: The Queen Elizabeth 2. But there are some who view the meeting as an unforgivable betrayal well-armed, well-trained fanatics led by a brilliant madman in possession of a stolen nuclear sub. And in one devastating instant they strike, swiftly, and effectively taking control of the great ship, the summit, its attendeesand the world.
Two operatives for separate government agencies two brothers, one already in harms way, the other racing relentlessly toward it must now stop the nuclear clock and perform the seemingly impossible in order to rescue the future of civilization from the claws of unreasoning terror. Because failure to do so will mean one thing: Armageddon.
The heads of the 7 most influential nations are holding a summit on the QE2, when a terrorist attack is launched by Red China Maoists who do not want their country to go the way of the Western world.
I liked reading about this great ship, although the story was a little slow, and the trained agents in it seemed to do things contrary to what you would expect them to do. It also has some submarine action going on, which is another genre I enjoy reading. I wouldn't say this is the best book I've ever read, but it's OK. A quick read also...I finished it in two days.
