About the Author

Nikoo and Jim McGoldrick are storytellers with a checkered past.

From the submarine shipyards of Electric Boat in Groton, Connecticut, and the clubs of Rodeo Drive, to the forges of Pennsylvania and the electronics manufacturers of Massachusetts, these two have spent their lives gathering material for their novels. Nikoo, an engineer, and Jim, who has a Ph.D. in sixteenth-century British literature, wrote their first full-length novel, a historical romance, in 1994. Since then, Jim and Nikoo have written over forty novels and two works of nonfiction.

These prolific and popular authors write under the pseudonyms of May McGoldrick and Jan Coffey and have been the recipients of numerous awards for their work. They now reside in Southern California.

The USS Hartford nuclear submarine needs to make emergency repairs. However, Commander Darius McCann soon realizes that there is more to the stop then just a repair. Terrorists have gained control of the sub leaving him and his engineer Amy Russell in a precarious position of trying to stay alive while thwarting the enemy.----- Lieutenant Colonel Sarah Connelly and Commander Bruce Dunn conclude something is not right about the Hartford. They team up to figure what that is and soon reach the horrifying conclusion that cold-blooded killers, probably suicide bombers having access to nukes, have gained control of the vessel driving it on a path that is taking it to a panic stricken New York City.---- SILENT WATERS is an action packed thriller that never slows down from the moment that the Commander realizes his ship has been taken until the final climatic countdown to either the ultimate terrorist act or its prevention. The key players seem genuine especially the beleaguered Americans racing against time to stop a potential suicide bombing that will make 9/11 seem trivial in scope. Jan Coffey provides a strong thriller with a superb political twist that will stun the audience.------ Harriet Klausner

SPOILERS AHEAD!This book was written by a husband and wife team and I will tell you right now, had it not been so incredibly well written and fast paced I would have thrown it across the room and not picked it up again until I was ready to take out the garbage. Don't get me wrong, I think these people are wonderful authors. Despite my better judgement I will probably pick up another one of their books because I can see they are incredibly talented. The problem that I had with this book is totally separate from the merits as a piece of literature. If there is one thing that I absolutely can not stand with the white hot intensity of a thousand burning suns its someone blatantly foisting their beliefs on me in the form of entertainment. It drives me INSANE!! Note: This is not because I have any particular affinity for any political party. I would feel the same about this book if it had been wildly slanted in the other direction. If I wanted political commentary I would watch pundits and if I wanted to be indoctrinated I would go to bible college. I can not stand it when people thinly veil their beliefs in the form of what is supposed to be entertaining me. I want to read a story not a badly disguised dissertation on the authors' belief in the evil properties of the Republic party, President Bush and Homeland Security. And the as if the blatant Republican and Bush bashing wasn't clear enough there's always the sainted Democratic candidate who's family covers the entire minority spectrum. And they're not even religious. Hooray!!From the very first page when the two innocent Bush bashing, oh excuse me Hawkins bashing, guards get munched by the terrorists I already see where this is going. Page one and I could already see that this was going to be a massive right wing conspiracy theorist novel. And it had so much potential. I loved the characters and I'm not lying, the writing is great. So why, why, why did they have to ruin it all for me by making it a lesson in why Republicans are Satan? Grr.And despite it all I will find their other books and read them. There's something in that, right?
