Publisher's Summary

The US aircraft carrier patrolling the Western Pacific Ocean is severely damaged by a surprise salvo of cruise missiles. While the Russian government officially apologizes, claiming it was the result of fire control accident during a training exercise, it was instead a calculated provocation. With the US Pacific fleet already severely under strength, the Russian president decides that the US response is a clear indication of their weakness, militarily and politically, and initiates a bold plan. Political unrest is spreading through the Eastern European states. The Russian Northern Fleet moves swiftly in the Mediterranean Sea, the Russian army is moving west to the border, and Russian Baltic and Black Sea Fleets are mobilized. In one bold strike, the Russian army moves to reoccupy a large number of the industrialized areas of the former USSR while blockading the vital sea passages through which the world's oil and natural gas transit. To make matters worse, Russia's Special Forces have wired every major oil and natural gas pipeline with explosives. If the US makes one move to thwart Russia, they'll destroy them all. The US is risking disaster if it acts, but the alternative is quite possibly worse. Torn between the unthinkable and the impossible, the only possible move - to launch an attack on all fronts, simultaneously.

Clancy/Flynn Fan

Love this series. The first three books where great with lots of detail, as was this book. Sad they still haven't introduced any of the three seawolf class subs.

Awesome

This book is awesome. Action packed and a non stop listen while on an extended RV Road trip. Only missed one exit while so engrossed in the story.

Techno-Thriller?

Thought I was buying a Techno-Thriller instead got a Hallmark Movie script. Two sentences on the damage done to a American carrier and many paragraphs about what kind of clothes the main female character was going to pack, packed and wore. Yuk!

Wide open for a Fourth Book

Wow... a great series. It’s smooth. The transition between scenes and locations. I can’t wait for the fourth...if there will be one
