Publisher's Summary

In Rick Campbell's next action-packed thriller Deep Strike, the US Atlantic fleet is in a race to stop a rogue Russian submarine - funded by ISIS - en route to launch a missile attack against the east coast of the US.

A shoulder-launched missile attack on a convoy of vehicles leaving the UN headquarters in New York kills several diplomats, including the American ambassador. Security footage reveals that the killer behind the attack is a disgraced former special forces operative, Mark Alperi. But before US intelligence operatives can catch up with him, Alperi is already onto the next phase of his plan.

With funding from the nearly shattered ISIS, Alperi plans an attack on the US that will be more devastating than 9/11. He bribes a desperate Russian submarine commander with access to an expensive experimental drug for his daughter who is suffering from a rare disease. In exchange, the Russian commander will take his submarine to the Atlantic Ocean and launch a salvo of missiles at various targets along the East Coast of the United States. The commander lies to his crew that it's a secret mission, with dummy missiles, for a training exercise. At the same time, unbeknownst to the commander, Alperi has arranged for four of the missile warheads to be replaced with four surplus nuclear warheads and arms them.  

When the Russian submarine sinks the US sub that is tracking it, the US military is alarmed. When Intelligence uncovers Alperi's plot, though, it becomes a race against time - find the Russian sub and sink it before it can launch a devastating nuclear attack.

The Trident Deception Series

Plot: The Trident Deception Series consists of several full-length novels in the military genrè. A retired Navy author provides page-turning excitement of near-miss disasters in American conflicts, primarily with Russia. Suggest starting at the beginning of the series, as several characters - like the President, Chief of Staff, a navy seal, and a strong female lead traverse all novels written to date - will be more.

Liked: If you are a fan of The Hunt for Red October by Tom Clancy - you'll love The Trident Deception Series. All are nail-biting, page-turning stories. Some graphic violence; if you're a victim of wartime PTSD, these might not be for you. Clean reads, no sex, no objectionable language. Learned a bit about submarine tactics.

Not so hot: Audio speed is a bit slow for my taste; I bumped the rate to 1.4 on the iPhone.

Written by Rick Campbell, and narration is fine; there are several, each book in the area of 10-15 hours of listening in audiobook format, released from March 2014 to date by Blackstone Audio.

Recommended.

Great shift of direction

I have liked all the books of the series but this one was the best so far. The plot was great and I liked the change in the style and balance of the story. Reminded me a lot of Tom Clancy novels I like so much with the complexity.

Good Story, Very poor narration

the story was good, but failed to live up to the quality of previous book in the series. Of great disappointment was the narration. bad guys and female voices were forced with a deep low guttural sound that made the story sound awful. the women all sounded like life.long smokers suffering from lung disease and throat cancer. completely distracting and unnatural. took much away from the book.
