I enjoyed the first book in the series so much I decided to read book two. Christine O’Conner is the president’s national security advisor. She advises against signing the Maer Accord about the mutual access to environmental resources between the U.S. and her allies. The Accord severely limits China’s access to natural resources. O’Conner said this will lead to war with China; the Chief or Staff says it will not lead to war. O’Conner flies to China to attempt to offset a war but she is arrested and confined to a cell; as China goes to war. She escapes and eventually end up on the U.S. Michigan, a trident submarine.
Three American submarines are immediately destroyed as China launches war. China’s missiles and ships are more sophisticated than expected and she has many many more than does the Pacific Fleet. When China gets the Pacific Fleet exactly where they want it, they also launch cyberwarfare.
The book is well written and is non-stop action. The battle scenes are real nail biters. The book seems quite realistic. I could hardly put the book down. This is a great military action novel.
I read this as an audiobook downloaded from Audible. The book is about thirteen and a half hours long. Fred Berman does a great job narrating the book. Berman is an actor and award winning audiobook narrator.

The story line is decent but the narration is a big distraction to me. I should have listened to the audio sample but I didn't. He sounds like Joe Pesci screaming when he tries to read the dramatic parts. Imagine nails to a chalkboard. His normal reading voice, I can bear but beyond that; it's like a tenor trying to reach beyond his range. The different characters all sound the same same.
The author definitely knows his submarines and weaves a good enough story to keep you engaged. I totally enjoyed Rick Campbell's first book, The Trident Deception and narrator was good. This one; not so much. Please listen to the sample before you purchase.
