Fiction. Suspense. Thriller. HTML:

The Barracuda 945 is the ultimate weapon. A jet-black Russian nuclear hunter-killer, it runs deep and its silence and speed are unparalleled. It can stay submerged indefinitely, and can fire land-attack missiles from below the surface. Invisible to any pursuer, it is nearly impossible to track in the millions of square miles of ocean water. In the hands of the navy, it brings instant credibility and respect. In the hands of a diabolical terrorist, it brings sheer terror. Admiral Arnold Morgan, the President's National Security Advisor, meets his greatest enemy yet, a military genius who now leads the most vicious terrorist group in the Middle East. Morgan valiantly marshals America's forces, nearly helpless in the face of an enemy they cannot detect, a nightmare of modern warfare.

The theme of the book, that a terrorist could take down the USA power grid was a good one. But, it goes downhill from there. Buy a submarine from the Russians, using the Chinese...nope!!! There were several outright errors of fact. And, the chief terrorist, a clever SAS Brit of Iranian descent is able to persuade the ayatollah of his genuineness. And, again...who is Admiral Morgan and what role does he play? He's a national security advisor with pure parochial Navy in his heart...doesn't know how to pull any other levers. Thank goodness, we shed the Brit narrator this time. ( )

Highly disappointed after reading this book. had very high regards for Robinson after reading his earlier books and blindly picked this book going by his reputation but was gravely disappointed by the book. There is nothing much to be written about this book. The plot sucks and you whats going to happen next with having to take a wild guess :-(. I would recommend Robinson fans to give a skip to this book...Seriously. ( )

I last read this book in May 2011, it was the first Patrick Robinson book I had read at the time and since then I've read the series from Nimitz Class onwards and reached this title earlier this month. I was wondering about whether to re-read it or not but figured it wouldn't be bad to refresh my memory for the following title.

I'm glad I did as it certainly is an action filled tale of terrorism and undersea skulduggery. The story revolves around an SAS soldier who defects to HAMAS and employs his years of training and front line expertise to help his long lost 'home' country/religion. Being a series about submarines predictably they end up buying a submarine via Iran/China (although not so predictably it's boring, you just know from the series where it's going, the actually manner of purchase is not dull).

Brings back memories of the Ben Adnam escapades however the plot is different enough that it doesn't feel stale, and amazingly for a novel about the US military/navy it doesn't end with them on top. ( )

There were several aspects to this book that I found annoying, didn't add to the tension and would have been more suited to a movie script than a book. Other facts were repeated over and over and it all seemed that this book was padded out to meet a predetermined length. I found it disappointing as I've read a few books by Patrick Robinson and this was just a poor effort. It was barely tolerable. ( )

A spy novel about a British Special Forces person who converts to a Palestinian terrorist. He pulls off several cappers and plots to change the strategy for terrorism in the middle east. With Iran's help they purchase a couple of Russian submarines and set out to destroy the oil supplies from Alaska to San Diego. In the end the US special operations blows up the Panama Canal. ( )
