Overview

A SINGLE SPARK CAN IGNITE A WAR THAT CONSUMES THE WORLD.

Three Tibetan rebels attack a train carrying Chinese soldiers into the Tibet Autonomous Region. The rebels escape across the Himalayas into India, unaware that the son of China's First Vice-Premier lays maimed and dying among the burning wreckage of the train.

As an escalating series of retaliations drive China and India toward outright war, hostilities spill over into the sea, and the Bay of Bengal becomes a crucible of naval warfare.

The president of the United States orders a U.S. Navy strike group into the area as a stabilizing force, but the situation between the two nations has already deteriorated beyond any hope of peaceful resolution.

With Asia hovering on the brink of annihilation, a small force of U.S. warships must defeat the Chinese Navy to preempt the coming firestorm.

The fuse has already been lit...

Author Review - Rob Ballister
Jeff Edwards’ talent for the techno-thriller should put him in the same ranks as Dale Brown and Tom Clancy. There may be one or two people alive who know more about antisubmarine warfare, but there is no one who writes about it better.

    Cassi

    Appeared in jesthiva, wearing a simple blue dress, dyed blue hair, and a lot of makeup. She started walking towards the largest building, moving with the simple grace everyone had here. Everyone was in a certain color, all the exact same shade. Cassi looked around, noticing how much everything had changed under the tyranny.
