Giugno 2006: gli Stati Uniti decidono d'inviare nel mar cinese meridionale in missione di spionaggio il loro più moderno sottomarino d'attacco, il Seawolf: un gigante di novemila tonnellate, capace di viaggiare a quaranta nodi. L'obiettivo è eseguire rilevazioni a distanza ravvicinata dello Xia, un sottomarino nucleare che i cinesi stanno per varare. La missione viene condotta brillantemente ma, sulla via del ritorno, in seguito a un banale quanto inspiegabile incidente di manovra, il Seawolf viene catturato dai cinesi. Recuperare il sottomarino, prima che i suoi segreti tecnologici siano svelati, diventa la priorità assoluta della Marina americana, un'emergenza priorità che chiama in gioco le menti più raffinate per elaborare un duplice piano di salvataggio, e gli uomini e i mezzi più micidiali per portarlo a compimento.

Tom Clancy it isn't. Ethan was in the car when it came to the part where the admiral streams off profanities like "fucking gooks" and "chinks" and what-not. Problem with the book is that the author appears to think that China and US are run my the military. In the US case, he makes it appear like th Leggi tutto
First 1/3 is a submarine story, and then it switches over to a specforces rescue operation. Given the book's blurb, this didn't come as any surprise. It was a good story with plenty of tension, drama, and intrigue, but reader beware: strong language and racism ahead. But I suppose they don't say "Cu Leggi tutto
It is funny but I can remember the first time I read this book I loved it up until the end and then I completely hated it. I could say I understood others who talked about feeling 'betrayed' by how a book ended after reading this thing's ending. The second time I read it my feelings were not much be Leggi tutto
This book isn’t terrible - I picked it up randomly from the library, with no prior experience with the author, but I like the military fiction genre. The writing in this book was the most jarring for me. It seemed like the antagonists had no character development and were written cartoonishly. The pr Leggi tutto
A customer brought this into my work one day and personally handed it to me to read. He is an older gentleman and had always seen me with a book so he wanted to share one of his favorite authors. I had never read a book by Patrick Robinson before. Actually, I can't say I've ever seen his books before Leggi tutto
Parts were so farfetched to make it unbelieveable.
First Patrick Robinson book I read. Great!
I read this book hoping to find a successor to the prime era of Tom Clancy. Well, in a way, this out Clancies late era Clancy by being one of the most racist novels I've ever read. Clancy was racist towards Chinese people in "The Bear and The Dragon", comparing them to Klingons from "Star Trek" and h Leggi tutto
I enjoyed this book very much. I have recently gotten into the niche of military action and thriller books. I also enjoy the books by Rick Campbell and submarines. I haven't read the prequel Arnold Morgan books, but I picked this one up and it turned out to be very enjoyable. Robinson is clearly wel Leggi tutto
I found this book on a downstairs shelf, maybe it came from the library book sale, but I'm glad I ran across it. Though the first few pages were a little slow, it didn't take long for this book to heat up. It is not "politically correct" in reference to other nationalities, which bothered me, but th Leggi tutto
