EYE OF THE TIGER
The Bengal set sail from a teeming Singapore harbor, but its precious cargo comes from the heart of the war-torn Middle East. The freighter is traveling under the flag of Cameroon, headed for an unknown destination. Deep in its hull the ship carries one of the deadliest devices ever invented, which silently waits for the perfect moment to detonate.
EYE OF THE STORM
The intelligence forces of the world discover that a red bomb-an anti-personnel, mercury-based nuclear device-is on board the missing freighter. But one man, a veteran of the international killing game, is prying loose the information-tracking clues in the twisting alleys of Cairo and across the blood-stained streets of Northern Ireland-that will expose the conspirators. Meanwhile a former Special Forces officer is on board the hellbound vessel itself. Now, analysts and soldiers, spies and strategists scramble in Washington, the Middle East and even Castro's crumbling Cuba in a frantic search to find the Bengal. But only the terrorists themselves know where they are going to strike-and how their weapon will launch the next war.

Charles Ryan does not count among the top tech writers of this world, although he's on his way. Bengal is written with hot blood and a lot of knowledge and although a few things should have been dumped during editing, he does a fine job in riveting us to the hull-plating of that ship and its destiny. A few sub-scenes are technically so correct, it's a surprise he has not yet written a sub-only move in the vein of Red October or Crimson Tide. He should, however watch his language and skip the sex-scenes. They pull an otherwise decent MS down. /Alec
In the manner of Tom Clancy and Larry Bond, Charles Ryan writes a terrorist ripper. Characters come and go, and are well developed (sometimes, maybe too well, for the lesser ones!) But, his attention to detail is excellent, and the personalities created are entirely believeable. Highly recommend.
