Overview

Dr. Christine Myers, a forensic scientist with the CIA, has investigated some of the most heinous crimes ever committed, but nothing could prepare her for the slaughter aboard the Dragon, a defecting North Korean nuclear submarine. On board, Christine and a team of Navy SEALs find all the crew members dead, some with their bodies smashed and mutilated, others poisoned from chlorine gas inhalation. Was the gas leak an accident, or was it sabotage? As the SEALS submerge the sub and attempt a clandestine journey to land, Christine tries to piece together the forensic clues. But once the SEALs start dying one by one, the survivors must band together against an unseen enemy—before it’s too late.

Editorial Reviews

Booklist
Journalist Doyle writes with a level of authenticity that will appeal to readers of forensic-based mysteries.
Publishers Weekly

After a gripping opening, Doyle's debut degenerates into a routine science fiction thriller. Early one morning, Dr. Christine Myers, a forensic scientist for the CIA, receives a call from her superior to investigate a bizarre crime: the crew members of a North Korean submarine intent on defecting to the U.S. have all been killed, some by chlorine gas, which may have formed accidentally, but others bear marks of violence that suggest they turned on each other. Accompanied by a team of navy SEALs, Myers arrives by helicopter on the sub off the Virginia coast and starts reconstructing the fatal events. What appears to be an interesting locked-room murder mystery takes a detour into X-Filesterritory when Myers finds evidence that the sub was transporting a powerful bioweapon that may have transformed one of the sailors into a superhuman monster. The book lapses into a less than engaging takeoff on the movie Alien, redeemed somewhat by an unconventional ending. (Nov.)

Copyright 2007 Reed Business Information
Mystery Scene Magazine
A genre-blending mix of mystery, thriller, sea story and science fiction, the sub's claustrophobic setting intensifies the already considerable element of suspense. A terrific, rip-roaring read.
Library Journal

The crew of a North Korean submarine tries to defect, later to be found slaughtered in their vessel in U.S. waters. CIA forensic scientist Christine Myers is sent to investigate, but neither she nor the Navy SEAL team working alongside her is prepared for what happens next: the SEALs begin to die, one by one. It seems that a killer virus is spreading, and one SEAL member has become a lethal monster. Though at first the SEALs had resented Myers's presence, they must now join forces with her against the vicious killer. Virtually all of short story writer Doyle's thriller takes place aboard the old, cramped sub-the feeling of claustrophobia is pervasive and well done. The plot, however, is somewhat implausible in presuming that any SEAL team would be able to jump in and pilot a North Korean sub to safety-and then of course there's the requisite government cover-up. Although the monster in the boat is a familiar theme, the book is well written and fast-paced fun. For larger collections.
