Publisher's Summary

HMS Temeraire: latest and most advanced of Britain's nuclear submarines. When Temraire's trials are cut short and she is ordered to the Far East to reinforce the fleet against a threat from Red China, her captain, David Jermain, knows that this is no routine exercise in flag-waving. And once in Asian waters, he and his submarine find themselves involved in a hidden, undeclared conflict beneath the sea.
While the politicians haggle over a situation which could hold the seeds of full-scale war, Commander Jermain must keep his faith in himself and in his new ship's potential - even when ordered to take the Temeraire to the edge of a catastrophe.
Douglas Reeman joined the navy in 1941. He did convoy duty in the Atlantic, the Arctic, and the North Sea and later served in motor torpedo boats. Douglas Reeman has written over 30 books under his own name and over 20 best-selling historical novels featuring Richard and Adam Bolitho under the pseudonym Alexander Kent.

A great book and a great author

Very sad to learn that I finished this book on the day the author died :(

I have always been keen to read a Douglas Reeman book. When I was 5 I found a small number of his books owned by my mate grandad (including a ship must die). But I never got round to reading them.

Since joining audible I was reminded of Reeman's work so went for this as my first read of his work and I was delighted. Clever, informed, well written and visceral.

Perfectly narrated I look forward to reading more books.

My deepest respects to the authors family.
