Another great story by Robinson, the second I have read about Ravi Rashood. I can't wait to read more.
He calls himself Ravi Rashood, a former SAS officer who currently masterminds one of the world's most virulent terrorist organizations. An elusive madman dedicated to the annihilation of the West, he now possesses the means to accomplish his nightmarish goal: a nuclear-tipped cruise missile named after the avenging sword of the Muslim warrior Saladin.
Fired into the crater of the most dangerous volcano in the Canary Islands, the Scimitar SL-2 will trigger a sequence of geophysical events that will create a mega-tsunami the likes of which have not been seen in modern times. It would pound the southern coastlines of Europe and flatten the entire eastern seaboard of the United States.
U.S. Admiral and retired National Security Adviser Arnold Morgan knows that Rashood must be stopped, but finding him won't be easy. The killer and his terrorist crew are hiding aboard a virtually undetectable submarine somewhere in the vast depths of the ocean. But for Morgan and the U.S. Navy, there is no choice because time is an enemy ... and the only alternative is the first Atlantic mega-tsunami in 4,000 years.

Wonderful book! I have read every book that I can find by this author and have loved every single one of them. If you are a fan of Tom Clancy or military/techno thrillers, this is a must read in my opinion.

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.
