    Evolutionary Thrills

    The best of the DiMercurio sub novels (so far)Threat Vector combines the gripping techno thrills of his previous five works with a maturity of character development that is both three dimensional and evolutionary in style. Some advice: buy all SIX DiMercurio submarine thrillers and read them in order. That is the best way to appreciate the evolutionary nature of the characters who fade in and out of these stellar thrill rides. While each of the six books stands on it's own as a fine acheivement, reading them in order brings perspective on the changing lives of the men (and women) who, it is plain, DiMercurio understands and loves so well. ....and so will you!

    Riveting

    As with all his other books, 'Threat Vector' was just reviting. I waited for it to hit the shelves here and wasn't disappointed when I finally got it in my hands. Can't wait for the next one!

    All tubes fired electrically!

    THREAT VECTOR is another DiMercurio triumph. It's a bit different from his earlier books, goes into deeper character development (especially with a Ukranian sub captain), and offers many of his standard friends --though quite a few are killed off in this book. He is cleaning the decks for further, more spectacular action, I think. DiMercurio offers always much more than a techie thriller--he has the experience and imagination to envision new weapons of some 20-30 years ahead and he uses these with finesse. As usual, the deftly-written story is nail-biter exciting and the realism of it grips the reader. DiMercurio's time on a boat pays rich dividends in his books. Grab this one and hang on!

    Another triumph for DiMercurio

    Micheal DiMercurio's books have a longevity that many do not have. In Threat Vector, the supervillian from the first book, Admiral Alexi Novskoyy, is freed from jail in Siberia by a consulting agency with a secret agenda - using a supersub named the Vepr to wreak havoc on international trade. First, however, a test must be completed. Needless to say, this test involves the entire U.S. Naval brass. Threat Vector is a gripping and engaging book. DiMercurio has pulled off a fantastic book yet again.

    Best Auhtor of Submarine Action

    A wonderful read. Mr. DiMercurio puts you right in the middle of what it is like to be there in the control room of a fast attack boat. Its nice to read a book by someone thats been there,and can add thier experience in the book. Can't wait till the next one and see what happens next. Makes me think on back on a sub again.

    Hold On TO Your Seat...You're In For A Ride!

    DiMercurio hits it big time with a balance of futuristic politics and probable technical advancements in naval warfare! Each page is filled with suspense and intrigue that pulls the reader into the story. The knowledgeable descriptions and attention to detail bridge the gap between plausibility and realism, bringing the not too distant future into the present to such effect you¿ll find yourself brushing seasalt off the pages! The author has further perfected his ability to make you understand the emotions and feelings of a submarine captain while under attack. He puts you in the Captain¿s chair and doesn¿t let you up until you turn that last page! This has definitely put DiMercurio at the top of his genre. Hollywood should get on its knees and start begging!

    Threat Vector: Technology gone to far?

    I am an avid reader of Michael Dimercurio and am a huge fan of his books. All his past novels are gripping and, quite literally, have me jumping out of my seat and screaming at the book when a torpedo misses its target. I don't feel that this latest book is as good as his previous ones. It is not because of his writing style, but it is the shift that his books seem to have taken. It seems as if his books are more about the new technologies that he has created, and less about the people running them. Other than that, Threat Vector is just as exciting and riviting as his past novels, full of surprises and twists, something which is always welcome in a novel.

    Another good read from DiMercurio

    THREAT VECTOR is another good techno-thriller from Mr. DiMercurio. As always, his new book is a definite read for those who enjoy rousing submarine battles and healthy doses of Navy tactics and procedures. He introduces several new characters, including a strong female officer; many old faces also make appearances. I found this novel less believable than his previous works, but his predictions for the future of submarine warfare are creative and interesting. Definitely a must-read for those who have enjoyed his previous books. No one writing today knows more about submarines!

    A Jolly Good Read!

    Once again, Mike DiMercurio tantalizes the reader with a great thriller. His knowledge of submarines & naval warfare excel in this latest continuing saga of 'Patch' Pacino & his mates. For those who have read some of his earlier novels, you'll be surpised to see he brings back Pacinos nemisis from the first book. A great plot, weaving old naval experimentation with dolphins into the more high tech future. I'm waiting for the next one you old sea hag!

    Another Great One From DiMercurio

    I have been a fan of submarine books since I was expelled from school for studying WWII sub tactics instead of math, english, latin, etc. I discovered Michael DiMercurio's books about a year ago and have read each one at least twice. I was immediately captivated by his writing style and the continuity between his novels. He doesn't pull any punches in his storytelling, and rather than just highly recommending THREAT VECTOR, I would suggest you start at the beginning with VOYAGE OF THE DEVILFISH and work your way through all of DiMercurio's books. If you like submarine books with an appropriate amount of high tech stuff and a continuity of characters, you cannot go wrong with any of DiMercurio's novels.

    DIMERCURIO KNOWS BOATS (SUBS)

    GREAT READ!!! AUTHORS KNOWS HIS STUFF BECAUSE HE SERVED ON 637 CLASS SSN'S. I CAN RELATE EXACTLY TO HIS DESCRIPTION OF EVENTS AS I ALSO HAVE SERVED ON 637 CLASS SSN'S. HIS BOOKS CAPTURE THE ESSENCE OF BEING A SUBMARINER. EARNING DOLPHINS TRULY IS ONE OF THE MOST UNIQUE OCCUPATIONS AND EXPERIENCES IN THE WORLD. EVEN IF YOU NEVER SERVED ON BOATS, YOU'LL ENJOY MR. DIMERCURIO'S BOOKS. IF YOU JUST FINISHED THREAT VECTOR, GO BACK TO THE BEGINING AND READ THEM ALL. YOU WON'T BE DISAPPOINTED!

    Clearly the best writer of sub fiction out there

    I have been reading submarine fiction books for quite a few years and I have to say that Micheal Dimercurio has to be the best hands down! His intimate knowledge of submarines and the USN are easily apparent and take his writings to a much higher level in believability, authenticity and technical expertise than his competitors. If you like submarine adventures, put Clancy back on the shelf, you don't need him anymore. If we could just get his publisher to print them faster!

    Riveting read, loved it!

    I discovered Michael DiMercurio with 'Barracuda, Final Bearing' and I think he is super. Am an ol' Clancy fan from way back, since 'Hunt for Red October,' and, I gotta tell ya, I think DiMercurio one ups the ol' Master Clancy. His crisp writing and suspenseful plotting is as good as it gets and he does it with fewer side trips and is more economical with language than Clancy without losing any of the drama. Trust me - this guy's good. And 'Threat Vector' is an outstanding example of his work.

    Threat Vector Delivers The Goods

    Once again, Michael DiMercurio has delivered a taught, sleek techno-hit. The tension keeps you rivited in your seat, (in my case, SF's BART train during the commute,) and the characters are so real. You feel like you really know them, and get into their heads during the claustrophobic scenes in the control room. It's just another hit in the burgeoning line of sub thrillers from someone who, IMHO, has Tom Clancy for lunch.
