EMERGENCY // EMERGENCY // SSBN HIJACKED // CMDR J. GARDES SENDS

As hurricane Helen barrels in toward the Virginia coastline, the U.S. Navy’s Commander-in-Chief Atlantic Fleet orders all vessels to scramble to sea, including Burke Dillinger’s Hampton and Peter Vornado’s Texas.

But this is no mere storm evacuation.

There is something sinister going on in the eastern Atlantic. The Navy’s eyes are on the ballistic missile submarine force, the “boomer” submarines loaded to the gills with intercontinental nuclear warheads. And the French boomer submarine Le Vigilant has “gone bad,” hijacked by an Algerian terrorist with dreams of completing the circle of revenge and using French nuclear weapons on the French who killed his father.

As terrorist Issam Zauabri’s forces learn how to employ the nuclear missiles, Vornado’s Texas and Dillinger’s Hampton close in on the threat, but Issam knows how to use torpedoes as well as he does the missiles, and Le Vigilant is one of the quietest submarines ever built. Once the American subs are on the bottom, his attack can proceed on Paris, but since it was Americans who interfered, Issam will save one missile for New York…

First in an electrifying new series from “A MASTER RIVALING TOM CLANCY.”
--Publishers Weekly

U.S. Navy submarine commander Peter Vornado is at the top of his game in underwater warfare when a devastating illness takes him out of the service and almost to the grave. Without duty, honor, or something to fight for, his life is as good as over.

But the CIA needs a man like Vornado…

A terrorist cabal has acquired a scrapped Soviet sub from the Cold War -- a technologically advanced failure still able to outrun any torpedo or enemy vessel and strike at will. With a nuclear payload, it will enable them to strike directly at Israeland throw the world into chaos. All that remains is to modernize the sub with the latest technology.

Only one man can infiltrate the group, take the helm, and stop a holocaust -- a man who has already stared down death, and is ready to do battle once more…

[THE COMPLETE IDIOT’S GUIDE TO SUBMARINES]
THE COMPLETE IDIOT’S GUIDE TO SUBMARINES
by Michael DiMercurio and Michael Benson

Welcome to your tour of a state-of-the-art U.S. Navy nuclear submarine. You are standing on Pier 22 of Norfolk Naval Station in the Tidewater section of the state of Virginia. The pier is a long jetty of concrete, stretching westward into the Elizabeth River from the high security checkpoint next to the towering structure of the haze-gray tender ship.

Your destination is the end of the pier, where the sole in-port submarine of Submarine Squadron 8 is tied up -- all the other units of the squadron are already deployed at sea. The USS Hampton, SSN-767, is preparing to get underway for a rapid-deployment exercise, and you are lucky enough to be sailing with the crew.

The explosive new techno-thriller from former submarine officer Michael DiMercurio.

One ship could revolutionize submarine warfare as we know it: the USS Snarc. A robotic combat sub carrying no crew, the Snarc has proven unbeatable in sea trials. And now, it has fallen into the hands of an unseen enemy.

The Snarc’s first casualty: the nuclear sub carrying the son of retired Admiral Michael Pacino. The only man who can match wits with the Snarc, Pacino re-enters the game in a high-tech underwater battle unlike any that’s been fought before, one that could engulf the world in war—and bring him face to face with his most hated nemesis…
