A terrific submarine tale. A cash strapped Russia secretly sells 10 high tech Kilo class submarines equipped with nuclear torpedos to China. If they are all delivered an invasion of Taiwan is immenent.

This book would be a great movie. Good story, just the way the author writes is just annoying.

I enjoyed this book. It was different in that there was an event that surfaces here and there within the tale that does not appear to be a part of the story. A great read.

I really enjoy the Robinson books. Tecnical but very readable. If you enjoy military and political thrillers you will enjoy this.

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.

I really enjoyed Kilo Class, it provides just the right mix of submarine tech details and surrounding plot depth. The book keeps you reading, and the battle scenes are well written.

If you like Tom Clancy, Dan Brown type books, this one is for you.

Second in a series of submarine stories. First was "Nimitz Class", then this one and followed by "H.M.S. Unseen". This one is good involving the U.S., Russia, China and Taiwan. Ending is superb.
