    White-knuckled reading

    Wallace and Keith manage to take the action from the jungles of South America to the streets of Seattle without missing a beat, but the best scenes take place within the confines of the submarine. Never has the pressure, camraderie, and very real danger of daily life on a sub been conveyed so fondly and so well. You don't have to be a submariner or even a fan of this genre to find this book thoroughly engrossing.

    Boring, Boring, Boring

    Only a former submariner would be interested in this novel. Too bad it only got interesting in the last hundred or so pages.

    Adrenaline pumping adventure

    These guys know how to write a book. Their combination of writing talent and real world experience produced an adventure tale that had my heart pounding and my fingers turning the pages in anticipation. There are drug terrorists to hate, brave men to pull for, victims to fear for, and the future of our country riding on the outcome. The writing style and the authentic details give you a story world you can really experience. There are no cardboard characters here, no would-be adventurers. This is the real thing. After reading this book I feel like I've been there and done it. And I'm ready for the next mission, Commander. Just let me get myself in shape first. -- Charles Connor, Director of the Harriette Austin Writing Program, The University of Georgia.

    Move over, Clancy and Coonts!

    I got a copy of the uncorrected proof from a friend at a local newspaper to consider doing a review and I have to say, if I get time to write the review, it will be a glowing one. The authors have done a wonderful job of moving the action along and not getting too bogged down in hardware details. I feel as if I have now been aboard a nuclear sub after the way the authors describe life aboard the USS Spadefish. The big thing--these things could actually happen. It is not so farfetched like so many in the genre tend to be. I heartily recommend...and now, I think I will write that review for the paper!
