Ray Kerman, il rinnegato dello Special Air Service passato al terrorismo islamico, è tornato. E il suo piano non concede errori alla squadra dell'ammiraglio Morgan, che non ha mai smesso di cercarlo dopo le vicende narrate in "Barracuda 945". Sul suolo americano un vulcano spento da anni esplode in una disastrosa eruzione. Un esperto vulcanologo viene rapito a Londra. Per i servizi segreti della marina esiste un collegamento: Ray Kerman. Solo un uomo delle sue capacità può aver scatenato una tale catastrofe, servendosi di un missile sparato da un sottomarino modernissimo. E, infatti, pochi giorni dopo arriva l'ultimatum e Kerman minaccia di scatenare contro gli USA uno tsunami terrificante.

Fairly good submarine novel. A terrorist seeks to fire a missile into the crater of a volcano on the Canary Islands, creating a giant mega-tsunami that will devastate both the West Coast of Europe and the East Coast of the USA. Admiral Morgan has to try to find him. A book that has a lot going on, but Leggi tutto
As a whole this book is good, it's a solid addition to the Admiral Morgan series. It's got a nice mix of politics, action and intelligence work. There's less undersea action than some of his other books but the story nonetheless does revolve around an Iranian purchased Soviet submarine. The Iranians Leggi tutto
This book is poor. I have read quite a few other Patrick Robinson books and have enjoyed them - but not this one. The characters are paper thin stereotypes. Even the leading characters are one dimensional and predictable - there is zero character development. The authenticity was completely lost due Leggi tutto
This book sucked. The characters were cartoonish, the style was pathetic (I dare someone to count how many sentences in this book begin with the word "And"). Full of stereotypes... I accidentally read one other book by Robinson, but after reading this one, there are more than enough other authors ar Leggi tutto
Farcical to the extreme, even for the military submarine thriller genre.
I'm really conflicted about this book. It starts off with so much promise - a great plot and potentially great characters. It holds so much potential. But very soon, it degenerates into a limp, predictable, excruciating read. It is long drawn out, with lots and lots of repetition. It almost feels li Leggi tutto
Probably the worst entry in the Admiral Morgan series. The plot is ludicrous to the extreme. Aside from an excellent quote from Winston Churchill regarding political suicide there is nothing here worth reading.
Just one line from the book sums it up for me "How are we going to find those fucking underwater towelheads?"
This plot is interesting...environmental extortion and the USA held hostage to a "towelhead". The book is marred by multiple errors of fact. For example, the Army NCOs are not called "Senior Chief," a classified EP-3 would not be used for Seattle civilian transportation when Air Force McChord (airli Leggi tutto
I started reading this series years ago and loved it. Somehow I got away from it for at least 8 or 9 years, until yesterday when I started the 1st in the final 4 books in the series that I haven't read. Wow - it didn't disappoint. Action packed and, I think, a clear statement on the need for our mil Leggi tutto
