A cutting-edge naval warfare thriller from the award-winning author of 'Sea of Shadows'
THE WORLD HAS FORGOTTEN THE TRUE NATURE OF TERROR. IT'S ABOUT TO BE REMINDED.
A military revolt in southeastern Russia puts a former hard-line Soviet leader in command of a ballistic missile submarine and its arsenal of nuclear weapons. His goal: re-ignite the communist revolution, and recapture the might and glory of the fallen Soviet Union. Without warning, Russia, Japan, and the United States become hostages in a scheme of international nuclear blackmail. When the warheads start falling and people begin dying, no one can pretend that it's a bluff.
As the earth rushes toward extinction, a lone U.S. Navy warship must penetrate the Siberian ice pack to destroy the submarine before it can destroy the world.
It may already be too late.
