Publisher's Summary

One of our subs was missing
The nightmare fear of the US had come true. One of our finest submarines, the U.S.S. Tampa, on a top-secret spying mission, had fallen into Chinese Communist hands. The Communists, fighting for survival in a savage civil war, now held not only the sub, the crew, and the gutsy Commander Sean Murphy hostage, but US power and prestige as well.
America had one last desperate card to play. The most advanced submarine in the world, the still untried U.S.S. Seawolf, under the command of maverick daredevil Captain Michael "Patch" Pacino. The Seawolf had to steal back the Tampa from where it lay guarded by the entire Chinese fleet armed to the teeth with technology from the bankrupt Russians.

A Techno-thriller

I read DiMercurio’s first book “Voyage of the Devilfish” and enjoyed it. So, I decided to try another book by the author.

In this book China is at war. On one side is the White Army of New Kuomintang supported by the Japanese. The other side is the Chinese Red Army (Communist). The war is being conducted both on land and sea. The United States sends a submarine to eavesdrop on the action. The USS Tampa is captured by the Chinese Red Navy along with all its high-tech gear. The USS Seawolf, a stealth submarine, is sent to either re-capture the Tampa and its crew or destroy the submarine. Michael Pacino is assigned as the boat’s Captain. Now the anxiety and suspense begins. I could hardly put the book down.

The book is well written. The action is non-stop as is the suspense. The characters are realistic as is the seamanship. At times DiMercurio get overly technical in submarine or torpedo information. If you enjoy submarine stories, you will enjoy this book.

The book is eleven hours long. Joseph Courtemanche does a good job narrating the book. Courtemanche is a voice-over artist and audiobook narrator. This is my first encounter listening to him read.

Great book bad preformance

Any additional comments?

The person reading needs to learn to take a drink or swallow between breaks and not audibly during the reading. I is really bad to hear someone swallow and sound like he is getting choked on it. Otherwise he was good.
