The H.M.S. Unseen is one of the most efficient, lethal submarines ever built. But suddenly, on a training mission off the English coast, it vanishes, baffling military intelligence on both sides of the Atlantic, including National Security Adviser Admiral Arnold Morgan. A missing weapon is dangerous enough. But then the unthinkable begins to happen....Planes begin blowing up across the skies.

Searching for answers, Morgan is convinced that only one man can be behind all these devastating events: his archenemy, the world's most cunning--yet reportedly dead--terrorist spy. Determined to stop his old nemesis, Morgan must use all his wits to find a madman armed with a powerful sub hidden somewhere in a million square miles of ocean. What Morgan doesn't know, however, is that the fanatical terrorist has a plan of his own, one that will bring these two intense warriors face-to-face--and only one will come out alive in one of the most chilling spy stories of the year.

Basically a sequel to 'Nimitz Class', with the same main characters. Perhaps less compelling than that, and some stretching of credibility (difficult to believe that the VP of the US would be exposed to such known risk). But if you like the techno-submarine thriller, this is certainly of interest, although there is relatively little action on the submarine itself; this is more about the interface between politics, oil and terrorism. Firmly on the side of the good guys (ie the USA/UK!) with little sympathy for the perspective of other nations.read more

A fairly generic story with hopelessly black and white characters (Americans good, all Muslims bad). The final outcome was disappointing and seemed to require almost no input from the main characters - who knew what was happening the whole time but were powerless to do anything about it.read more

great story...until the hollywood and somewhat unrealistic final section where the rogue comes ashore to see his ex-lover. COME ON! why does a good war dit always have to be ruined by a love interest? and if so, make it something a little more likely - stolen sub sits itself of a wesrtern power while the commander goes ashore, breaks into a house and has a discussion with a woman since married to his nemeisis???

I read this story of the seizing of a British submarine whilst in Canada, which was just taking delivery of similar British submarines, adding to the interest. Probably best to suspend your critical faculties and just enjoy the ride in Patrick Robinson's books
