An oil tanker mysteriously explodes in the Persian Gulf. Then a second . . . and a third. To the President's National Security Adviser Admiral Arnold Morgan it is more than a tragic coincidence??it is a brazen act of aggression that must not stand. In partnership with Iran, the Chinese navy has mined the Strait of Hormuz, intending to hold the world's oil supply hostage. Now eighty percent of America's active sea power is being mobilized??including U.S.S. Shark, an aging nuclear submarine on its final tour of duty??to dismantle a deadly alliance between two powerful enemies. But something goes terribly wrong during a bold retaliatory SEAL assault on China's Indian Ocean power plants??a disaster that spawns death, disbelief, rage . . . and rebellion. And with a volatile world on the brink of catastrophic conflict, the commanders of a nuclear boat in the twilight of glory must confront a nightmare as devastating as it is unthinkable:… (mer)

This is in the Admiral Morgan series, but it's really a book about SEALs and their work. If it was a book about Morgan, it would be about interactions in DC, not about SEALS in the Middle East. The work of Admiral Morgan is really third or fourth priority among priorities in this book....background. It kept my interest throughout--the ending was good and true to form for the USN. Some of the discussion was very intricate and technical, indicating an ability to research by this author. This story is really a very close parallel with the Caine Mutiny; even contains a reference to Captain Queeg. Again, I criticize the author for his parochial US Navy attitude. Not even the Navy is non Joint any more...other options were not even considered by POTUS. That resulted in a naval direction for the book. Robinson....figure out that there are other Services, please! Oh, and the Brit narrator is a pretty good reader, but detracts from the story because he's not believable. There was an Aussie analyst, but he was fleeting also. ( )

This is my first Patrick Robinson book. I thought it was pretty good -- at least entertaining, though I felt the China/Taiwan storyline was unresolved, and the trial (court-martial) at the end seemed really quick. Plus I felt some of the swearing was a bit forced. This book entertained me enough that I will probably try another Patrick Robinson novel. ( )

This series continues to extend itself and hasn't fallen into a boring pattern like some other series books.

In this novel we have an expansionist China in cohorts with Iran attempting to strangle oil routes whilst also launching another surprise attack elsewhere once the US Navy is tied up in the Middle East.

Enjoyable, fast paced and realistic. ( )

Il s'agit d'un thriller techno-militaire à la sauce géopolitique genre Tom Clancy & co. Il faut mettre son esprit critique au vestiaire et se laisser emporter par l'action. Les gentils américains avec leurs gros canons se coltinent héroïquement avec les méchants (là ce sont les chinois et les iraniens) mais ça déménage et on a envie de savoir la fin! Un bon moment de détente. ( )

A good book for a rainy weekend or a boring journey, best check in your critical faculties with your luggage... ( )
