Overview

"It starts with a high-stakes theft: weapons-grade plutonium is stolen from Russia. The Russian army is about to attack Chechnya to get it back. But U.S. intelligence discovers that the stolen shipment is actually a rogue Russian freighter in the Black Sea." "It turns into a global nightmare: a secret mission gone awry; an American submarine commander arrested and hauled before a military tribunal in Moscow; and a game of brinksmanship so dangerous that war might be its only possible conclusion." As the U.S. Navy searches for weapons-grade plutonium that has been smuggled out of Russia by terrorists, a submarine mishap escalates the international crisis. With the world watching, JAG Officer Zack Brewer is called to Moscow to defend submarine skipper Pete Miranda and his entire crew. It is a heart-stopping race against the clock. With Russian missiles activated and programmed for American cities, Brewer stalls for time as the U.S. Navy frantically searches the high seas for a floating hydrogen bomb that could threaten New York Harbor.

Meet the Author

Don Brown is the author of Thunder in the Morning Calm, The Malacca Conspiracy, The Navy Justice Series, and The Black Sea Affair, a submarine thriller that predicted the 2008 shooting war between Russia and Georgia. Don served five years in the U.S. Navy as an officer in the Judge Advocate General's (JAG) Corps, which gave him an exceptional vantage point into both the Navy and the inner workings "inside-the-beltway" as an action officer assigned to the Pentagon. He left active duty in 1992 to pursue private practice, but remained on inactive status through 1999, rising to the rank of Lieutenant Commander. He and his family live in North Carolina, where he pursues his passion for penning novels about the Navy. www.donbrownbooks.com Facebook: Don-Brown

    Best Naval Novel since Hunt for Red October!

    This is a spellbinding naval tale that keeps you on the edge of your seat from start to finish! U.S. Submarine skipper Commander Pete Miranda leads a top secret mission to the Black Sea to avert the threat of nuclear terrorism. But with the world on the brink of disaster, an unexpected turn of events puts Miranda is in a no-win situation that will tear your heart out. Brown keeps the reader guessing up to the last second at each tension point in this book. You won¿t be able to put this down. As an ex-navy submariner who served on a Los Angeles class boat, I can say that while Don Brown doesn¿t get every little technical aspect of sub life right, he does a pretty darn job of nailing most of the details on the head and paints a picture that¿s for the most part realistic. Not bad for an ex-Navy JAG officer. I¿ve read most of Clancy and Grisham, and Don Brown does a marvelous job of combining the very best of both. This novel has just enough technical detail to make the story realistic, but not so much that the story gets bogged down. Mr. Brown pushes his thrilling storyline along quite rapidly. Black Sea Affair is an absolute must read for anyone seeking a thrilling literary adventure that will take the reader on an exciting and exhilarating ride to ports of call all over the globe.

    Thrilling! Addictive Action!

    I¿ve read all Don Brown¿s novels, and in the first three, I was swept away by the romantic tension between handsome U.S. Navy JAG Officer Zack Brewer and his feisty, sexy, redheaded naval officer girlfriend Diane Colcernian. So when I first picked up Black Sea Affair, I was a little disappointed that Mr. Brown did not pick back up so much on the romantic themes in his first three books between his leading man and his leading lady. But although the romance wasn¿t there so much in Black Sea Affair, I very quickly found myself absolutely addicted to something that I thought I would never read .. a military thriller! Yes, I know the first three novels were also about the Navy and had lots of military aspects about them, but the romance was always there just on or under the surface. What I found under the surface in Black Sea Affair was a submarine, led by a heroic navy captain in Pete Miranda, but despite his bravery and heroism, who was also broken in spirit at times with a soft heart. So the character development here was deep. On top of that, I¿ve never read an author who can keep the action going quite like Don Brown. Wow! Don Brown can keep thrilling, alternating storylines going at the same in the same novel like a master juggler tossing multiple balls in the air, and never dropping one. One such storyline is that of Pete Miranda. Pete is a handsome and divorced naval officer who loves his kids dearly, misses them and regrets all his time in the service away from home. He also struggles with the guilt of having lost his wife. I hope to read more about him in the future. Perhaps Don will introduce a romantic interest for Pete in his next book or take care of unfinished romantic business between Zack and Diane. Either way, though, Black Sea Affair is Don Brown¿s best work to date, and I, for one am hooked on Don Brown. This guy is a rare talent! Gerilyn Phelps Winston Salem, NC

    Thrilling Storyline

    This novel really moves with action, action and more action! I was a Clancy reader in his heyday, and this novel really pushes the action on a global stage in a manner of Clancy at his best. But the human interest twists, in which submarine skipper Pete Miranda must choose between obeying his orders, following his conscience, and nuclear war, turn this tension-filled novel into a nail biter. If Black Sea Affair doesn¿t make it to the big screen, then some producer is missing out on a chance for a major blockbuster movie. The plot for this novel is that good! Anthony Edgartons Las Vegas
