Betrayed by Iraq, the deadliest submariner in the world is determined to get his revenge. He defects to Iran and plans a terrible vengeance using his unique knowledge. Iran, smarting from a falsely administered punishment by America, is only too willing to help, for the terrorist plans to steal a submarine and turn it into a new weapon - a weapon that will cause the most shocking air disasters in American history. And to complete his revenge, he's made sure that the finger will eventually point to Iraq. Only Admiral Arnold Morgan suspects these terrible 'accidents' are the work of Ben Adnam, the man behind the destruction of the Thomas Jefferson. Everyone believed him dead. Until now...

Reviews

US Kirkus Review » Robinson, rising master of naval technothrillers (Nimitz Class, 1997, is now being filmed by Universal Pictures), returns with his second supersubmarine tale, something of a sequel to 1998's Kilo Class. As in Nimitz Class - where a US aircraft carrier disappeared in the Arabian Sea without a trace - a very rare advanced-design, diesel-electric submarine, H.M.S. Unseen, seemingly evaporates into the unknown off the English coast while headed for Brazil. A year later, a Concorde jet also disappears, this time over the North Atlantic, and soon thereafter a supremely high-tech, supersonic Starstriker jet vanishes as well, leaving nary a splash in its wake. Then Air Force Three, with the American Vice President on board, is blown from the sky. What's causing all this havoc? Well, believe it or not, H.M.S. Unseen has been subnapped by Iraqi terrorists and is now under the charge of Commander Ben Adnam, the wiliest terrorist seen in many a year. Adnam comes up against his own match, however, in the figure of National Security Advisor Admiral Arnold Morgan, though not before misleading Morgan into having the US fire missiles on Iran, letting that country take the vengeance that should've been wreaked on the real ringmasters who'd shot down Air Force Three. Far more smoothly written than Tom Clancy's mammoth digital readouts. (Kirkus Reviews)
