Overview

"If you like Tom Clancy, Clive Cussler, and Vince Flynn, you'll love this military techno-thriller by T. Steven Sullivan." ~ Ben McQuerry, US Navy Retired (Submarines)

"Awesome read brother! You kept this former ground-poundin' grunt intrigued in the life of a squid!" ~ a message left for T. Steven Sullivan on Facebook.

T. Steven Sullivan, a former US Navy Diver aboard fast-attack submarines, uses his experience to craft the story of “HOT RUN”.

Hot Run tells the story of 2nd Class Petty Officer Thomas Quinn, as he prepares to ship off to Officer Candidate School to be commissioned. He thinks he has the perfect mentor in his submarine's Commanding Officer, Captain Michael Maddox. However, when a special operation brings some mysterious cargo and its foreign escorts aboard the USS Key West, it's up to Quinn and his rag-tag band of SEAL team wannabes to find out why the interlopers seem to display gaining control over Captain Maddox and the submarine.

This story will transport you into the life of a submariner like no other submarine novel has done before. Weaved into the narrative are the subtle details which make submarines one of the most harrowing assignments in the military. From the smells of the synthetic air, to the mental fatigue which comes from having nowhere to get away, except for a coffin-sized bunk, these stresses are what the conspirators exploit to keep the crew in check as they race to use the submarine in the most grievous attack on America in history.

Meet the Author

T. Steven Sullivan (Tim) was informed by his high school guidance counselor that there was a clown school in Florida. He didn't take her up on the suggestion, instead he enlisted his trouble-making antics into the Navy. He served for four years as a Torpedoman's Mate aboard the USS Key West SSN-722, a fast-attack submarine. Amazingly, he earned a good-conduct medal during his time, even though he switched the sour cream with ice cream on the chief's table during taco day. He also told the Weapons Officer, minutes before a missile launch, that he thought he dropped his car keys in the torpedo tube while cleaning it. He did make quite a name for himself in the Navy, literally, when he painted "Sully" on the fairwater plane of the submarine. That stunt earned him a little one-on-one time with the C.O. in his stateroom. Even though Tim brought his rebellious nature to the Navy, the Navy helped focus his energy. He went on to Navy Dive School and became one of the ship's divers.

Life after the Navy continued to be adventurous for Tim. He began working on a career in the entertainment industry. He spent his time doing voice-overs, writing and acting in a sketch comedy show and training to be a stuntman. Unfortunately for the acting career, but fortunate for a husband and father of four, his side business took off and turned into a career. While the day-to-day operations of running a business didn't offer the type of adventure Tim was used to, he would use his lunch hours to escape. Armed with a wireless keyboard and a cell phone with Microsoft's Documents-to-Go app, Tim began to revisit his submarine days. An hour or so a day, Tim would sit in various fast food restaurants and try to type more words on the page than calories he would take into his body. After a while, his first novel, a tribute to the friends he served with, was finished.

Currently, Tim is preparing to hit the road with his family full-time in an RV. He is also working on his next novel which continues the story of Petty Officer Quinn, the hero of "Hot Run". Only this time he is going to try and avoid writing inside of fast food restaurants since his metabolism won't return his calls.

    Entertaining read

    Having been in the Navy myself, many years before this book took place, (Vietnam Era), the guys in the crew basically acted the same way and it was fun reading this, as well as being a very exiting yarn. Keep writing, this was a good one!

    Very Dull and slow moving.

    I think it is the worst book I have read in 20 years. He goes into such detail about mundane events I finally had to quite reading before finishing the last few chapters. I have no idea how it ended and I don't want to know.

    Very enjoyable.

    It took a little while for things to take off. But when it did it was hard to put down.

    Great action story

    Great sub yarn. Plenty of action with good characters. A hard book to put down. Keep up the good work Tim. I am looking forward to your next book.

    Not a plausable story. His writing does show potential, however.

    Not a plausable story. His writing does show potential, however. He should stick to the character he knew in his officeers and fellow submariners. Myrating based on the story line, not his writing. I'll look for his next novel.

    Good...

    I bought it strictly because there was a link to Clive Cussler and Tom Clancy.. It was good. But, I would of given it 4 stars if the author wasnt so long winded on some of his story. At some points it took 4-6 pages to describe a simple task of walking into a section of a sub.

    Thrilling!!

    I did not know what to expect when I open the first page of this book, but I was not disappointed. From the opening scene Steven Sullivan had me capture with very believable characters, and the depth of character developments this book was compelling. Everytime I thought I had a handle on the storyline, Sullivan surprise me again. Very thrilling book from beginning to end!

    Weak

    The concept may be like Cussler, but the writing, story, and character development is very weak.
