Publisher's Summary

It was an unprovoked attack, a deliberate act of aggression. When Vice Admiral Mike Brannon of the US Navy received word that the wreck of the Sharkfin had been found, with a gaping hole in its stern, he could only conclude that the Soviets had, without warning, attacked and destroyed a US nuclear submarine. He could not let the incident pass without retaliation. Yet whatever steps he took, he risked leading the two superpowers into a state of war. If he informed the president, it might take weeks for Congress to take action - too long. Whatever response was to be made, it had to be made decisively and immediately. Harry Homewood presents a novel of mounting tension, a story of today's naval superpowers locked in a deadly battle that brings an unknowing world to the brink of nuclear holocaust.

Molasses During a Cold Winter

Boston is still said to smell of the viscous liquid spilled when a huge molasses storage tank disintegrated near Boston Garden's future site..
I think I whiffed it those few times I was able to attend hockey games there , blood also fell on the ice as masks were not required of goalies then.

I don't think these have much to do with the book, which was good, but what could a young boy make of these vague portents?
