The accident changed everything… One moment, Lieutenant Jake Slate was going about his duties aboard the ballistic missile submarine, USS Colorado. The next second, he was sprawled on the deck plates in a spreading puddle of blood and hydraulic fluid. But it wasn’t the injury that ruined his life and doomed his military career. It was the rescue effort.
Now he’s being thrown to the wolves to cover up the misdeeds of a superior officer, and Jake doesn’t care for the role of sacrificial lamb.
Blinded by rage and unsure of his future, he finds himself at the center of a treacherous plot to hijack the Colorado and sell her nuclear warheads to a foreign power. Jake no longer knows who he can trust. He doesn’t know what the future holds. He really only knows one thing. He will have his revenge.
After John Monteith graduated from the Naval Academy in 1991, his career in the U.S. Navy included service aboard a nuclear ballistic missile submarine and a tour as a top-rated instructor of combat tactics at the U.S. Naval Submarine School. Since his transition to civilian life, he has continued to pursue his interest in cutting-edge technology. He currently lives in the Detroit area, where he works in engineering management when he's not busy cranking out high-tech naval action thrillers.
John Monteith writes the award winning 'Rogue Submarine' series, which pairs an arms-dealing Frenchman named Pierre Renard with a renegade American ex-naval officer, Jake Slate. The series includes ROGUE AVENGER (2005), ROGUE BETRAYER (2007), and ROGUE CRUSADER (2010). The fourth book, ROGUE DEFENDER (working title), is expected in mid-2013.
He also writes short stories about cybernetic control of predatory animals used in military applications. The Rogue Visions series includes ANGEL VISIONS, BEAST VISIONS, and CRASH VISIONS, and they have a curious character crossover with Jake Slate's brothers from the Rogue Submarine series.
