Armed with stolen U.S. military technology, the Chinese are producing a frightening new breed of weaponry,led by the ICBM submarine Xia III -- a vessel that just might be able to launch a nuclear warhead across the Pacific Ocean and take out an American West Coast city.

National Security Adviser Admiral Arnold Morgan can't let that happen, and he dispatches the most stealthy hunter-killer submarine in the U.S. fleet, the 9,000-ton ultrasecret Seawolf, deep into the dark, forbidden waters of the South China Sea. But then the unthinkable happens: Seawolf, collides with a Chinese destroyer and falls into enemy hands. A team of cunning Navy SEALs -- the biggest Special Forces assault group assembled since Vietnam -- is sent in to free the captive Seawolf, crew and bring them home. The American Eagle confronts the Chinese Dragon with the balance of world power on the line. Failure is not an option...

Patrick Robinson is the author of seven international bestselling suspense thrillers, including Nimitz Class and Hunter Killer, as well as several nonfiction bestsellers. He divides his time between Ireland and Cape Cod.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from How to get out of a Fishbowl In this book, the Chinese have fitted a Xia-class submarine with an ICBM capable of launching a nuclear warhead across the Atlantic. The Americans send a hunter-killer sub to investigate. While in Chinese territorial waters, they collide and are captured. One of the submariners is the President's son. A Seal Team is sent to find the captured crew and get them out. Robinson's books always have a good mix of politics, Navy Seal Black Ops and submarine cat-and-mouse games. The book is quite long, concluding with a court-martial, but Robinson is thorough, and doesn't leave any loose ends.
