Summary
The unthinkable has happened. The nuclear-powered Nimitz Class Aircraft Carrier Thomas Jefferson, the most powerful warship in the world, home to a crew of 6,000 sailors and navy fliers, has been vaporized at sea in what appears to be a nuclear accident. The loss of life is devastating. It is the greatest peacetime disaster in U.S. history, and the shockwaves reverberate around the world. Yet even as America grieves, Lt. Commander Bill Baldridge of Naval Intelligence, brother of one of the victims, begins to piece together reports that suggest something sinister lurks beneath the surface of this tragedy. A rogue submarine armed with a nuclear torpedo is on the loose, no one knows who commands it, who is on board or how it managed to reach striking range of the Thomas Jefferson. Worse yet, no one knows where it is now. Will it strike again? Baldridge will not rest until he brings his brother's killers to justice, and as one clue leads to another, the deadly chase is on. Every technical detail in "Nimitz Class" has been authenticated by Admiral Sir John Woodward, the senior British task group commander in the Falklands War, to ensure that every naval maneuver, every harrowing plot twist could really happen. Chilling, compelling, completely authentic and supplemented with detailed maps and technical illustrations, this white-knuckle, read-through-the-night thriller heralds the astonishing debut of a new master of suspense. A stunner that irresistibly hurtles the reader through explosions & deceptions from the first page to the exciting climax on the last. The most powerful warship in the world, the nuclear-powered U.S. Nimitz-Class aircraft carrier is seen as impregnable. But when the USS Thomas Jefferson suddenly disappears at sea, the Pentagon is stunned. There was no warning. No apparent attack. And no survivors. All signs point to a tragic nuclear accident. While the world stands in shock, reports suggest that it was no accident. A rogue submarine armed with nuclear warheads may be on the loose. Where did it come from? How could it get within striking distance of the Thomas Jefferson? Worse yet, where is it now and could it strike again? The tension mounts, and a deadly chase begins
