It's a mission that could bring the world to the brink of nuclear war. Now time is running out.It starts with a high-stakes theft: weapons-grade plutonium is stolen from Russia. The Russian army is about to attack Chechnya to get it back. But U.S. intelligence discovers that the stolen shipment is actually on a rogue Russian freighter in the Black Sea. It turns into a global nightmare: a secret mission gone awry; an American submarine commander arrested and hauled before a military tribunal in Moscow; and a game of brinksmanship so dangerous that war might be its only possible conclusion.As the U.S. Navy searches for weapons-grade plutonium that has been smuggled out of Russia by terrorists, a submarine mishap escalates the international crisis. With the world watching, JAG Officer Zack Brewer is called to Moscow to defend submarine skipper Pete Miranda and his entire crew. It is a heart-stopping race against the clock. With Russian missiles activated and programmed for American cities, Brewer stalls for time as the U.S. Navy frantically searches the high seas for a floating hydrogen bomb that could threaten New York Harbor.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Don't Nuke My Relatives! This book was a bit of a departure from Brown's three other books, Treason, Hostage, and Defiance, in that it was 5/6 military thriller, 1/6 JAG. I was, of course, pleasantly surprised that the military part was about submarines, and it was well done. They also go through the Bosporus, submerged. Zack Brewer, the JAG officer from the other books made an appearance, too although there's no real update on his romance with Diane. Aren't they engaged by now? Weapons-grade plutonium is stolen by the Chechans and a nuclear device is built on board a freighter that is sailed into the Gulf of Finland in order to nuke St. Petersburg. Hey, don't they know my relatives are in nearby Helsinki? It's about political brinkmanship and also has you concerned about the innocent bystanders.
