    I have read the previous five Jerry Mitchell novels, finding the first four very good and the fifth mediocre In the author notes of the fifth book, Larry Bond points out that it was originally a four book project that was stretched to five This explains my surprise when I saw this book on the shelf at the local library.It is better than the previous book More political thriller along the lines of later Tom Clancy than pure submarine action This time around the submarine of choice is SSN 23, I have read the previous five Jerry Mitchell novels, finding the first four very good and the fifth mediocre In the author notes of the fifth book, Larry Bond points out that it was originally a four book project that was stretched to five This explains my surprise when I saw this book on the shelf at the local library.It is better than the previous book More political thriller along the lines of later Tom Clancy than pure submarine action This time around the submarine of choice is SSN 23, the Jimmy Carter This is a very cool Seawolf class sub, with a special forces section added in the middle For a bit of trivia of why this president got his name on an SSN instead of a CV like other presidents It is very cool The UUVs are back in action, with the author plausibly using the special section of the Jimmy Carter for their use Overall the action and possible direction of a potential Russia NATO conflict work The economic decimation of the Pacific Rim in the fourth book doesn t factor into...

    A drop off from the previous books in my opinion primarily due to the long framing of the plot that takes place during the first half of the book Considering that everything in the story is a reflection of our modern world his portraying every Democrat as a moderate that is also a military hawk is comical I am not a big fan of how he keeps old characters i...
