Publisher's Summary

At the top of the world…
At the bottom of the sea…
A war has begun.

Below the polar ice cap, an American nuclear submarine moves quietly in the frigid water, tailing a new Russian sub. But the usual, unspoken game of hide-and-seek between opposing captains ends when the Americans hear sounds of disaster and flooding, and the Russian sub sinks at a depth of a thousand feet. The American sub rushes to help, only to join its former quarry in the deep. The situation ignites tensions around the world.
As both Washington and Moscow prepare for what may be the beginning of World War III, the USS Toledo—led by young, untested Captain Joe Glass—heads to the location to give aid. He soon discovers that the incident was no accident. And the men behind it have yet to make their final move. A move only Glass can stop.

Excellent thriller. Can't wait for more!

This is a great book. The style is like a mixture of Ted Bell and Steven Coonts. The story is sort of a mix of the old "Run Silent, Run Deep" and "The Hunt for Red October".It is a real page turner and difficult to find a good stopping point. If I could have, I would have read the entire book all at once. The characters are realistic, the story believable and well researched. The narration was also excellent. If you enjoy thrillers and especially naval military books. don't miss this one!
