From the Publisher
A New York Times Bestselling Author -- It is the greatest advance in American defense technology in decades -- an attack submarine capable of incredible underwater speeds. There?s only one problem: a key element of the prototype is missing, and the man who developed it is dead. At the same time, ships have started vanishing mid-ocean, usually never to be found again. But when they are, bodies are found aboard burned to a crisp. What is going on? It?s up to Dirk Pitt and his team to find the truth.
