Armed with stolen U.S. military technology, the Chinese are producing a frightening new breed of weaponry,led by the ICBM submarine Xia III??a vessel that just might be able to launch a nuclear warhead across the Pacific Ocean and take out an American West Coast city.

National Security Adviser Admiral Arnold Morgan can't let that happen, and he dispatches the most stealthy hunter-killer submarine in the U.S. fleet, the 9,000-ton ultrasecret Seawolf, deep into the dark, forbidden waters of the South China Sea. But then the unthinkable happens: Seawolf, collides with a Chinese destroyer and falls into enemy hands. A team of cunning Navy SEALs??the biggest Special Forces assault group assembled since Vietnam??is sent in to free the captive Seawolf, crew and bring them home. The American Eagle confronts the Chinese Dragon with the balance of world power on the line. Failure is not an optio… (mer)

USS Seawolf by all means is a very specific military (Navy) action-thriller that catered to that very reader(ship) group. As the title suggests, it's about submarines. It's narrated by a Brit and that significantly detracts from the overall enjoyment. Plot and strategy are believable, but the solutions are entirely Navy...it's almost like the other services don't exist or the author did not research them enough to add into the story. I guess I ought to get over that predilection because Robinson is a Brit. That said, he portrays the US President in a vindictive and trite way. The story is very enjoyable if you can get over the Brit narrator and the single service perspective. ( )

Really enjoyed this book; at first I was a little worried the Ben Adnam from the prior book was the mysterious Linus Clarke character who seemed nervous and lacking in fortitude, however thankfully it is later revealed who Linus Clarke is and it isn't BA.

This plot is believable, nicely paced and has a great action filled climax before winding down to end on a sorrowful note.

It's nice to read a book involving the US Navy where they aren't portrayed as superheroes, I felt this book did a good job of accurately describing the balance of power, ambitions and abilities of the US & China.

Highly enjoyed. ( )

By the close of the twentieth century, China had gathered secret information concerning United States military surveillance and guided-missile technology. Now, in 2005, the technology is in production in China's new breed of submarine-based long-range missiles. The dragon has stirred. Admiral Arnold Morgan, the President's National Security Adviser, cannot sit back and wait for China to perfect their new ballistic weapon. He dispatches the most... ( )

Since first light, they had been observing the blue-water Fleet of the People's Liberation Army/Navy moving menacingly back and forth in a classic "racetrack" pattern, 50 miles offshore.
