Overview

Aboard the guided-missile frigate U.S.S. Turner Van Zandt, Lieutenant-Commander Dan Lenson and his dedicated crew take on a daring assignment: escort a convoy of supertankers through the mine-filled Persian Gulf.

For Lenson and his men, however, the danger is only just beginning. When a missile from a hit-and-run enemy sinks a U.S. destroyer, every ship and aircraft in the area goes on red alert.

As all hands prepare for the inevitable showdown with a hostile Middle Eastern nation, Benjamin Shaker, the destroyer's hair-trigger captain, plots his own secret form of revenge. If he isn't stopped, it could mean disaster for the entire Gulf region-- and maybe the world!

"Poyer's grasp of the machinery of modern naval warfare us unparalleled, and his prose makes it live..a thoroughly enjoyable read!" —J.William Middendorf II, former Secretary of the Navy

"Authentic and engrossing!" --Kirkus

"His mastery of technical and procedural detail does for the modern small-ship fleet what Tom Clancy does for nuclear submarrines and Stephen Coonts for aircrafts carriers." —Publishers Weekly
