Accurately describes the cat and mouse game under the polar ice cap that has been going on for decades since USS Nautilus transited to the North Pole in July and August of 1958. Few men are as well versed in the continuing effort to ensure our national security.
"If you want to know what it's like to fight for your life and country on a submarine and as a diver under the ice, then this is the novel for you. It's as realistic as it gets, written by someone who lived it." —Professor John B. Rosenman, Norfolk State University
As USS Teuthis Saturation Dive Team Officer-in-Charge (OIC) Mac McDowell leads his submarine team laying SOSUS listening network arrays under the Arctic ice, they capture an abandoned fully automated Alfa-class Soviet sub. Piloting their prize through the ice pack to the U.S. East Coast, they must evade or confront other Soviet subs trying to recover the sub—or sink it. Breathtaking deep-sea clashes erupt, including hand-to-hand combat with Soviet Morskoy Spetsnaz divers under the ice. Too far from Teuthis to escape, the Americans are accosted by a 5-ton orca. Will Mac's ship survive long enough to reach friendly waters, or will the men become just another meal for a deadly whale?
