Publisher's Summary

In the 21st century, the United States has all but used up its oil supply. A new source must be found. Our atomic subtugs begin stealing oil from underwater deposits in enemy territory. But none of the last 20 tugs sent to bring back the desperately needed mineral have returned. Ensign John Ramsey of the Bureau of Psychology is planted aboard the Fenian Ram S1881 as an electronics officer. His assignment: find the saboteur in the four-man crew and bring back the oil.


What the Critics Say

"A sea story of an imaginary war that comes very close to matching...any chronicle of real war.... A novel that ranks with the best of modern science fiction." (The New York Times)
"One of the few science fiction novels I'll recommend to anyone." (Pittsburgh Press)

Decent story

Decent story but drags a little as 95% of the story takes place in the submarine. Scott Brick's narration is good.

Deep Six Sleeper

If it weren't for the pefect voice of Scott Brick, this story would put you to sleep. The technology is way out of date and the story sort of drags you through stuff already hashed out and improved on by Tom Clancy and other Submarine warfare writers. You have to look at tomorrow's world through yesderday's eyes. I'm pretty good at doing such things with most of Herbert's work, but this one is sort of too "old hat" to really get into.
