Publisher's Summary

It's as big as the Empire State Building, a massive floating fortress at the heart of a U.S. Navy Carrier Battle Group. It's a Nimitz-class nuclear carrier, the most powerful weapons system on the planet; nothing can touch it. So when the first stunned messages say that the Thomas Jefferson has disappeared, the Navy reacts with disbelief. But the truth becomes inescapable: a Nimitz-class carrier has been claimed by nuclear catastrophe. No other explanation is possible. But, as Navy maverick Bill Baldridge begins to investigate the disaster that claimed his idolized brother's life, another chilling alternative begins to emerge: a rogue submarine. Suddenly it's up to Baldridge to track down this shadowy nuclear terrorist, who still has another nuclear-tipped torpedo in his arsenal. Read by TV and film actor Jay O. Sanders, this taut thriller will keep you guessing. Today, Nimitz Class is a novel. Tomorrow it might be the news.

What the Critics Say

"An absolutely marvelous thriller, one of the best things of its kind I have read in years. I don't need to urge people to read it, because they will do so by the millions." (Jack Higgins)

Fast Read. !

Interesting and fast paced. Great way to spend your time without hurting your eyes watching TV. Story told well with some twists and turns here and there. I actually think that such an event might be possible, but I think the escorts would have made short work of the attacking enemy, as the LA fast-attacks would have been submerged.

Good reading, needs more satisfactory conclusion.

The author ended it the way he wanted, but I felt it would have been better with something more in-depth, such as finding who was behind the trigger man, which would have been a more satisfactory ending for a book about the death of 6,000 Navy sailors.
