Kilo Class by Patrick Robinson
Book DescriptionSilent and undetectable, the Russian-built Kilo-Class submarine is the only true enemy of the American Carrier Battle Groups - and it is up for sale. Having ordered ten from Russia, who are in dire need of foreign currency, China primes its first three, ready to take control of the Taiwan Strait. Desperate to safeguard its ally on China's doorstep and stop the arrival of the Kilo-Class subs, America launches itself into a secret war, led by the President's National Security Advisor, Admiral Arnold Morgan. As the battle over peace, power and money is played out in the icy depths of the world's oceans and the hinterland of Russia's rivers and lakes, it becomes clear that there can only be one victor.

UK Kirkus Review » The Chinese have ordered ten Kilo Class submarines from Russia. They have two, a third is brought on the deck of a freighter. The Americans have vowed that they will not get the other seven, come Hell or deep water. This is the theme of a well-researched, tautly written novel, moving from the icy depths of the world's oceans to the rivers and lakes of Russia, by the bestselling author of Nimitz Class. (Kirkus UK)
US Kirkus Review » British submarine novelist Robinson's nuclear device debut, Nimitz Class (1997), about a carrier lost with all hands and planes while on station in the Arabian Sea, received top reviews, largely due to its amazing and catastrophic plot: How can a carder simply disappear? That story's sequel carries on in the same spectacular vein, except this time US subs are sinking seven ultraquiet Russian ones that have been sold to the Chinese to aid in their takeover of the sea lanes around Taiwan. Now, China's xenophobic military find their beautiful new subs with their nuclear-tipped torpedoes disappearing into abyssal darkness and utter silence. Sound good? You're right, and it deserves wide sales to the technothriller crowd. Nimitz Class is now being filmed by Universal Studios. (Kirkus Reviews)
