Publisher's Summary

HMS Temeraire: latest and most advanced of Britain's nuclear submarines. When Temraire's trials are cut short and she is ordered to the Far East to reinforce the fleet against a threat from Red China, her captain, David Jermain, knows that this is no routine exercise in flag-waving. And once in Asian waters, he and his submarine find themselves involved in a hidden, undeclared conflict beneath the sea.
While the politicians haggle over a situation which could hold the seeds of full-scale war, Commander Jermain must keep his faith in himself and in his new ship's potential - even when ordered to take the Temeraire to the edge of a catastrophe.
Douglas Reeman joined the navy in 1941. He did convoy duty in the Atlantic, the Arctic, and the North Sea and later served in motor torpedo boats. Douglas Reeman has written over 30 books under his own name and over 20 best-selling historical novels featuring Richard and Adam Bolitho under the pseudonym Alexander Kent.

Have you listened to any of David Rintoul’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

David Rintoul is a great narrator

Any additional comments?

It’s a good story line and kept me listening. Believable and intriguing from the militaristic/technical point of view. The plot of confrontations between main characters was a little over cooked. Generally I like the humanistic value of the characters
