-----Another well written book by the author of CHOOSERS OF THE SLAIN.-----
A tense, high-tech military thriller of a near-future possibility. What if China were plagued by civil war? What if the Nationalists and the Red factions came to a major confrontation? What if the side likely to lose decided they might as well take everyone else out with them when they went?
What if you were an American warship captain and you just discovered what was going on? What rules might you break if by doing so you MIGHT be able to avert nuclear armageddon?
Brimming with heat-of-battle action and state-of-the-art technology, Sea Strike plunges Commander Amanda Garrett, first introduced in Choosere of the Slain, and her stealth destroyer, USS Cunningham, into action. After suffering internal revolt, Communist China sets out to end the war-with a thermonuclear firestorm. Garrett and her crew must prevent the holocaust before it engulfs the Pacific Rim. From a dadly open-ocean submarine hunt to a desperate journey up the Yangtze River, Garrett leads a raid into the heart of China. And the fate of one-quarter of the human race hangs in the balance....
Sea battle with modern stealth destroyer
The second of the well-crafted series following the Naval career of Amanda Lee Garrett, this volume finds her trying to avert nuclear war in China. Superb action sequences and well-developed characters make this a must read. Highly recommended.
