Overview


The story is a superpower action thriller about a Chinese submarine, the "Chinese Empress," that helps a criminal scientist of Chinese-American descent escape from the "Ice Prison" located on the continent of Antarctica in the year 2010.
The prisoner was sentenced to death for murder but the Chinese want him to be returned to the mainland because he has developed a formula that caused permanent infertility in laboratory rats. They want him to work on a formula that could cause infertility in humans. The conservative element in the government sees it as a bargaining tool against the overall nuclear superiority of the United States. A sinister greedy few see it as a devastating weapon that could be used to create panic in places such as California that has a huge population. It is the latter more important reason that the submarine must be stopped at all costs. This information could be sold to the highest bidder among the fanatical enemies of the United States.
The only hope to stop the submarine from completing the escape is a U. S. Destroyer and a former Navy SEAL who is now a special agent to the President. The main problem for him is that there are actually three submarines the scientist could be on. He must determine which one of them has the prisoner before he can order military action. Unfortunately, time is running out because the submarines are slowly but surely sailing out of the frozen Antarctic ice flow where their speed has been restricted. Soon, the three of them will be headed back in separate directions to China.

    Worst Naval book ever.

    I have NEVER read a naval fiction novel as bad as this. Riddled with typos, there is absolutely no attention to naval action, as is always present in books such as David E Meadows. I'm at page 134, and will finish it just to say I read the worst naval fiction book out there.
