Description

Tensions between Siberia and Moscow are running high, but the sudden disappearance of leading top-tier Siberian politicians and oil executives sparks open outrage in the vast lands east of the Ural. Terrified that Siberia will sever their ties and deprive Russia of its most important oil source, Moscow turns to a new supplier in the South Atlantic: the Falkland Islands. In an undercover mission, they persuade Argentina to invade the islands again. In return for oil rights, Moscow's hunter-killer submarine, Viper 157, will take out the British aircraft carrier arriving to recapture the islands, leaving Argentina free to claim the 'malvinas.'

The United States are furious at this act of international piracy - and the fact that their largest oil giant owns the very same oil rights. Under the stern eye of Admiral Morgan, the navy SEALs bring in the legendary Commander Rick Hunter. Their mission: to hammer Argentina's military and free the Falklands. For the fabled Hunter, the assignment has struck close to home. His English brother-in-law and an SAS special forces team are trapped on East Falkland, on the run from an Argentine shoot-to-kill man-hunt, out of contact...

From Publishers Weekly

20 March 2006 – Set in 2011, this disappointing techno-thriller from bestseller Robinson (Hunter Killer) focuses on a proxy war between the United States and Russia. Russia's fear that Siberia, its prime source of oil, might move further away from its control and even possibly begin supplying the Chinese, leads its spies to carry out a brazen assassination in the White House and to incite Argentina to recapture the Falkland Islands, where oil has recently been discovered. But even that improbable plot soon becomes subservient to a clichéd rescue mission by U.S. Navy SEALS to save some British counterparts left behind after the Argentine invasion. None of the characters has much life, and enough details fail to ring true to make suspension of disbelief a challenge. Thriller fans interested in such topical issues as the current conflict in Iraq, the global war on terror and concerns that Iran and North Korea will become nuclear powers will have to look elsewhere.
