LARRY BOND is the author of numerous "New York Times "bestselling thrillers, including "Vortex, Cauldron," and "The Enemy Within." A former Naval Intelligence officer, warfare analyst, and anti-submarine technology expert, he makes his home in Springfield, Virginia.
Submarine officer Jerry Mitchell-last seen in Bond's (www.larry-bond.com) Dangerous Ground (2005), also available from Brilliance Audio and read by Audie Award winner Dick Hill-is navigating the USS Seawolf on a reconnaissance mission in the Barents Sea when it is ambushed by a Russian sub. Bond adroitly shifts the action from the subs to the rescue teams and from hard-line officers to defiant Russian wives and mothers who demand news of their men, while Hill expertly handles the many voices and keeps the action flowing. An essential listen for those enjoying submarine stories and military thrillers, which don't get much better than this.
