Overview

Phoenix Sub Zero is the third novel in a series of submarine adventures that has been hailed by such as The New York Times and Publishers Weekly as among the best of underwater thrillers, including works by Tom Clancy - Michael DiMercurio's previous novel, Attack of the Seawolf, received specific comparison with Clancy's The Hunt for Red October (please see the back of this jacket). In Phoenix Sub Zero DiMercurio has written his largest, most seaworthy in every sense of the word, submarine epic. In a not-so-distant future the United Islamic Front is fighting what seems a losing war against a United Nations whose land-based task force is headed by a Navy Seal team and green berets. These forces are closing in on the UIF capital and its leader, General Mohammed al-Sihoud, who, however, manages to slip through the UN net and escape into the deep waters of the Mediterranean. Captain Michael Pacino of the USS Seawolf is hand-picked as the best officer in the U.S. Navy to find the hidden enemy, and the Seawolf is precisely right for the job. The consequent action is relentlessly tense and authentic, on the cutting edge of submarine state-of-the-art technology and fathomless human courage.

The Hegira is the finest super-sub that Arab oil money can buy. One American sub has been destroyed. Now the Hegira is headed toward America to deliver its lethal payload. It's up to Capt. Michael Pacino and the U.S.S. Seawolf to find the enemy and destroy it, in the ultimate battle between the most advanced weapons technology on the planet.

Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly - Publisher's Weekly
In the near-future imagined in this brisk, hardware-packed techno-thriller, the United Islamic Front of God, comprised of 30 Islamic nations, is losing its world war with the Western Coalition, comprised of European countries and the U.S. To turn the tide, the Front resorts to its ultimate weapon: a plutonium bomb to be launched at Washington, D.C., from the Hegira , a Japanese-designed sub seemingly superior to any other under the high seas. As the Hegira breaks into the Atlantic in order to close in on its target, one American sub is sunk and another is crippled, leaving the fate of the West in the hands of Mike Pacino, captain of the American sub Seawolf , and the badly damaged USS Phoenix , whose commander, David ``Sugar'' Kane, refuses to abandon the hunt. Former submariner DiMercurio ( Attack of the Seawolf ) conveys without melodrama the horror of undersea warfare, with death in a hundred forms always a hand's-breadth away. He is also a master of submarine technology, rivaling Tom Clancy in his ability to make technical details comprehensible to general readers. Here, in true techno-thriller fashion, the computers, torpedoes and propulsion systems carry the exciting story from first pages to last, where Seawolf and Hegira engage to decide the future of the world. (Aug . )
Library Journal
Capt. Mike Pacino is back in command of the submarine U.S.S. Seawolf. General Sihoud, leader of the United Islamic Front of God, has overrun Chad and Ethiopia on his way to invading India. The United Nations, led by the United States, has determined that the only way to stop Sihoud is to assassinate him. The missile attack on Sihoud's headquarters fails, and Sihoud escapes aboard a Japanese-built sub. He then procedes to launch special nuclear weapons on Washington, D.C. Armed with superior torpedoes, Sihoud's sub sinks two of the best U.S. subs on its way to its launch site. Armed with defective but devastating Vortex torpedoes, Seawolf is dispatched to save the day. Though the writing is sketchy in spots, DiMercurio's work offers readers an action-packed drama that seafaring buffs and general readers alike will enjoy. Public librarians will want to raise their purchasing periscopes and target this one.-Grant A. Fredericksen, Illinois Prairie Dist. P.L., Metamora

    This book rocks!!

    I enjoyed this book a lot. This is the first submarine book I have read, and I thought at first that I wouldn't like the genre. But DiMercurio really does it! I am sure I will read more sub books thanks to this one! Although Micheal somtimes goes into detail too much, and it's hard to understand if you don't really know submarines, it's stil a great book. Recommended!!!

    Prepare to loose sleep!!

    Once you start reading, you can't put it down. As a former submariner myself, I get asked alot about what it is like being underway on nuclear power. Well prepare your mind because this is just like being underway. Sure submarine life is dangerous, as Michael DiMercuio so accurately depicts, but this is quite the recruiting book for the US Submarine Force and I am proud to have served. I have been involved in MANY drills at sea and I can tell you the scenarios that the Phoenix and Seawolf are involved in are accurate and very realistic! This is a top-notch book and I give it a BRAVO ZULU!!!
