Publisher's Summary

Terrorism. Acts of oppression. The threat of nuclear war. What if one madman aboard a vessel could end these fears forever?
Commander Rochelle "Rocky" Jackson is aboard the aircraft carrier USS Ronald Reagan when the "unsinkable" naval vessel and its entire fleet are attacked from the depths and sunk. As Rocky struggles to stay alive, a monstrous mechanical steel stingray surfaces, plowing through the seas it now commands.
The US Navy-designed Goliath is a futuristic nuclear stealth submarine in the shape of a stingray. Simon Covah, a brilliant scientist whose entire family were the victims of terrorism, has hijacked the sub. Believing violence is a disease, Covah aims to use the Goliath and its cache of nuclear weapons to dictate policy to the world regarding the removal of oppressive regimes and nuclear weapons.
Could the threat of violence forge a lasting peace?
But there is another player in this life-and-death chess match: unbeknownst to Covah and the Goliath crew, the Goliath's biochemical computer brain has become self-aware - and it's developing its own agenda.

Nice story line!

This was the first audio book I have bought and decided to give it a shot. I really enjoyed it and looked forward to listening during my road travels.

Not a bad book but not the best either

The narrator was awesome! He did a great job with the accents. The story line wasn't bad but was predictable. I felt really bad for some of the characters for what they had gone through in the past and could understand why they were doing what they were doing. By the end of the book, I really disliked the female protagonist. I found her really annoying. It was as if one minute she hated Gunnar and then the next she loved him again.
