THE ONLY WAY TO SURVIVE IS TO CHANGE THE RULES.
A minor accident at a German nuclear power plant, a Biological Warfare attack on the British Embassy in Washington, DC, and a secret arms deal combine to drive a trusted NATO Ally into an illegal alliance with a rogue Middle Eastern state. With the world hovering on the brink of war, a handful of U.S. Navy warships must track down and destroy a wolfpack of state-of-the-art submarines.
Their enemy is skilled in deception, and incredibly lethal. Out-gunned, out-maneuvered, and out-thought, the U.S. Navy crews must throw the rulebook out the window, and become every bit as devious and deadly as their enemy. If they fail, the consequences are unthinkable…

An great book and a very good read
Now I am a bit biased as I was in the Navy although not on a destroyer, I was a corpsman in Vietnam.
This book was a great read, the characters were well developed and the story line a real page turner.
Read it and you will see what I mean
Fast Paced, Easy Read
In general, the book was fast paced and very easy to read. The author's experience in sub-warfare is evident and a vast majority of naval fiction readers will thoroughly enjoy it.
The only negative that prevents me from giving 5 stars would be the political aspect of the story line. The characters in this arc are one dimensional, and the lack of their depth is almost distracting.
In my opinion, the story would have flowed better by omitting these portions, telling the story through the well-written naval view.
No slight intended to the author. It was an excellent book!
As good as naval combat fiction gets
This book is a treat. Realistic characters and scenarios, tight pacing, and good writing. Suspenseful and occasionally laugh out loud funny. It isn't Shakespeare, East of Eden, or One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest, but it's as good as any book in this genre.
