Shark Mutiny by Patrick Robinson

Book Description

It is 2007, and three supertankers are ablaze in the Strait of Hormuz. World oil prices skyrocket. US Military Intelligence concludes that behind this catastrophe at the gateway to the Persian Gulf stands Iran, assisted by an expansionist China. Joined by new, young naval intelligence officer Lt. Jimmy Ramshawe, Admiral Arnold Morgan threatens the Iranian Navy with annihilation, deploying the US Navy to Hormuz along with the nuclear submarine, USS Shark, carrying two teams of Navy SEALS. With the US Navy distracted, China is able to unleash an attack on Taiwan, America's weak ally. The situation is critical as mutiny occurs onboard the USS Shark, jeopardising the entire operation by preventing the SEALS from assisting the increasingly desperate Taiwanese Air force ...

UK Kirkus Review » This latest naval-based techno-thriller by the author of Seawolf and HMS Unseen starts with China and Iran forming an alliance to mine the Strait of Hormuz, which forms the main route for oil from the Middle East to the West. This is completed successfully, with two oil tankers destroyed by the minefield. Soon the oil industry and the world are in crisis. The US retaliates by sending a team of Navy SEALs to attack and destroy a Chinese refinery based in Iran and a key Chinese naval base in Burma. The US naval nuclear submarine the Shark is involved in both SEAL raids and this is where two lifelong friends meet again. But the Chinese mining was merely a ruse for the invasion of Taiwan, which they carry out while all US naval attention is on the Strait of Hormuz. There are further plot twists, including the mutiny of the title (which does not occur until the final quarter of the book) and the ending is open-ended. Like most techno-thrillers, the book is fast-paced, with a plausible plot. The wealth of abbreviations and technical data can put off the casual reader, and there is a slight jingoistic slant to much of the characters' language. But on the whole it is well written, with sound characterization, and will be enjoyed especially by fans of Tom Clancy, Dale Brown and Stephen Coonts. (Kirkus UK)
