Somewhere under the Atlantic a Soviet sub commander has just made a fateful decision. The Red October is heading west. The Americans want her. The Russians want her back. And the most incredible chase in history is on.
THE HUNT FOR RED OCTOBER, Tom Clancy
Both the Americans and the Soviets commence an intense naval search when a trusted and skilled Soviet naval officer defects--using the USSR's most valuable nuclear submarine as his escape vehicle.
I thought this was an excellent book. The movie was done well, also, with Sean Connery as the Russian captain.
