Admiral Jake Grafton is resting at his Delaware beach house when he is asked to find out who has stolen his submarine and why. He learns that a rogue CIA group, originally trained to steal Russian technology during the Cold War, may be behind the operation. And soon it becomes clear that, whatever their purpose, they mean business: within hours a missile launched from the submarine destroys the top floor of the White House, and a second missile fells an airliner carrying 283 passengers. Now the race is on to find out where the submarine is, who is behind the nightmare scenario and - most critically - how to stop it.

Trite turnout from seasoned writer
Perhaps this book falls so short because Coonts published it prior to 911. The book treats the electronic devastation of NYC and DC as if they are merely inconveniences, without ever exploring the consequences that we too well learned in September of the published year. Characters are shallow and some of the conversation simplistically inane .. not what I'd expect from a writer who's been around as long as Coonts. I wouldn't go out of my way to find this reader again, either. Overall it was pretty disappointing.
