Well to start, this ain't Tom Clancy, but it tries to be, at times it tries way to hard. Throws a lot of military terms at you, needlessly. But it is a decent story, has a good plot, wasn't the most well written book(it IS like Clancy there), But I liked it.

Few authors annoy me as much as Patrick Robinson does. The man can write, and writes well, that isn't the problem. The problem with a Patrick Robinson story is often lack of proper research. The man seems to be simply incapable of actually learning anything about the things he includes in his books! He shoots down aircraft with anti-ship missiles, has terrorists operate nuclear submarines with little or no training and generally seems to just not care that things are impossible. You are left with the feeling that he spends his research time simply browsing the Internet looking for "cool" sounding weapons and ideas, then throws them willy-nilly into the books he writes, without having any clue whatsoever to what their actual purpose and function might be.

This is one of the most exciting books I have read in a long time. I learned a lot about submarines and their capabilities. I couldn't put it down. One tense moment led to another. Great read.

Three seemingly unrelated happenings set the stage for drama. First, in the eastern Mediterranean Sea, a young fisherman discovers the body of a drowned sailor. Second, underneath the surface of the Bosporus, a Russian diesel submarine secretly makes its way toward the Middle East to carry out a plan masterminded by Benjamin Adnam, an Israeli citizen. Third, the USS Thomas Jefferson, a powerful aircraft carrier manned by a complement of 6000 crew members, patrols the waters of the Indian Ocean. Suddenly, her blip vanishes from the radar screens of the other warships in her battle group. The ensuing investigation of her disappearance uncovers a sinister plot of brilliance and intrepid execution.

Starts out a little slow but speeds up then continues at a good pace to the end. A tale that keeps its hook in you right up to the end.

Excellent book. A thriller from the first page to the last. First in the series which continues with "Kilo Class" and "H.M.S. Unseen".

The most powerful warship in the world, the nuclear-powered U.S. Nimitz-Class aircraft carrier is seen as impregnable. But when the USS Thomas Jefferson suddenly disappears at sea, the Pentagon is stunned. There was no warning. No apparent attack. And no survivors. All signs point to a tragic nuclear accident. While the world stands in shock, reports suggest that it was no accident. A rogue submarine armed with nuclear warheads may be on the loose. Where did it come from? How could it get within striking distance of the Thomas Jefferson? Worse yet, where is it now and could it strike again? The tension mounts, and a deadly chase begins. In my opinion a very good book from Patrick Robinson.
