Finally in active service, Canada’s Victoria class SSKs had been derided in the press, the House of Commons, and by more than a few navy “experts.” Now, one of the submarines will either prove them all wrong or be destroyed trying.
A plan approved by China’s leaders to gain control of the Pacific Ocean for their newly enlarged navy could bring the world to the brink of war. Involving the kidnapping of a Canadian submariner, they are betting on Chinese control of global financial markets to ensure there will be no reprisals. A Canadian submarine, a CSIS agent, and a group of friends and former enemies however, stand in their way.
Commander Rene Bourgeois is proud of his command and her crew, but when HMCS Victoria stumbles upon the Chinese plot, the skills of her captain and crew will be tested to the breaking point. One wrong move could spell doom for the boat and, along with it, the Royal Canadian Navy’s future hopes for a submarine service.
