The Kaliningrad stands as the last great triumph of Soviet submarine technology. Now it has put out to sea, lurking beneath the polar ice cap. In command is the most brilliant officer the Soviet fleet has ever produced--Admiral Alexi Novskoyy. And in his fanatical hands is the power to turn back the clock to the Cold War...and begin the countdown to doomsday.
Opposing him is the killer chase sub USS Devilfish, captained by Commander Michael Pacino--a dogged veteran of the American fleet. His orders are to hunt down and destroy the Russian vessel. But his personal mission is to settle an old score with Novskoyy--the man who killed his father.
The ultimate undersea duel is about to begin...

I have read quite a few of the sub-stories published over the last few years, and I think this one has finally done something right. You have characters who are believable and actions which fall into line with standard sub operations. I was a little let down by the last few pages ( I can't revela the ending, but you'll see what I mean.......maybe), but overall a good book. I look forward to reading the rest in the series.
VOYAGE OF THE DEVILFISH is simply one of the best submarine novels ever. If you enjoyed THE HUNT FOR RED OCTOBER, then VOYAGE will not disappoint. The characters are vibrant yet realistic, and the attention to technical accuracy/detail is beyond question. Definitely a MUST READ.
