While not the first book Poyer wrote, in terms of story this is the first one to read in the series. Sets up all the characters.

Great sea tale. David Poyer (Captain, USNR ret.) knows the Navy inside out, so the settings, machinery, drama, and ship's company are all spot on. Dan Lenson isn't the easiest hero to like--too much the loner, to easily blind-sided by his own vanities and insecurities, always on a career track to oblivion or worse. But Lenson saliors on and, while he never makes it look easy, he always makes it right at the end.

As the Ryan plunges into the dark waters of the Arctic Circle at the height of storm season, Lenson and the crew pursue a mysterious and menacing enemy. But he soon discovers a foe even more dangerous within the Ryan, advancing a shocking agends that drives the ship closer to their very limit.

DAVID POYER is a U.S. naval officer and a critically-accclaimed author(The Gulf and The Med) whose novels are both gripping human stories and absoultely authentic portraits of the modern Navy's rituals, pressures, operations and weapons.
