Overview

Kilo Class (Admiral Arnold Morgan Series #2) by Patrick Robinson

It's one of the stealthiest, most dangerous underwater warships ever built—and it's about to set off World War III.

Silent at less than five knots and capable of a massive nuclear warhead punch, it's the 240-foot Russian Kilo Class submarine. Strapped for hard cash, the Russians have produced ten new Kilos for Beijing. The Chinese have already received three of the subs and now the last seven are ready to be delivered—a code-red situation the Pentagon must avert. Armed with a full strike force of Kilos, China can cripple American interests, shatter the balance of power, and successfully achieve the unthinkable in the Pacific Rim. But not if the newly appointed National Security Adviser, wily Texas admiral Arnold Morgan, can stop them—using the navy's deadliest covert forces.

In a breathtaking race against time, a team of Navy SEALs penetrates deep inside the remote waters of northern Russia on a daring mission of destruction. And in the icy darkness of the North Atlantic, a brave U.S. captain takes his 7,000-ton nuclear vessel on a hair-raising trip beneath the polar ice cap to head off a powerful Russian cordon determined to transport the Kilos at any cost. Horns locked in a tense game of geomilitary survival, each of the world' three most powerful nations knows that one mistake will mean all-out war.

This was a great book and was truly hard to put down. The action and suspense continued from beginning to end, and the superb writing style made it a pleasure to read. I also appreciated the abundance of technical detail that made the story more realistic and interesting.

Jam packed with fast moving action in a plot that is reasonably plausible. The author displays familiarity with his subject matter a la Tom Clancy. A top notch story teller.

Yet another book in the series for any military sailor to enjoy. It is the opinion of this sailor that those trashing the series have never rightfully served in any capacity found in the text and cannot appreciate the plot and detail. Truely enjoyable.

Patrick Robinson is a great author who has done a great job of talking about relavent and current topics and inter-mixing them with the US and UK submarine service and the US Navy SEALS! What is not to like about that. Kile Class is by far my favorite of all of his books. I could read it over and over again. This needs to be made into a movie.

Loved every word of it!!! I read the whole thing in 3 days. The author doesn't get bogged down in unnessary details, which keeps the plot fasted paced and INTRESTING!!!! I just love anything about black ops.

Scares the pants off you to think these things really go on. A great fast paced read with just the right amount of factual details to go along with the story line.

A good read. Not too much detail like the Clancy Novels is included. Flows and gets the story across without fluff.
