Ben McGuire, a battle-proven Naval officer, left active duty to save his marriage. In civilian life he works as a computer consultant. When the story heats up, he is serving out his annual two-week hitch aboard the Seventh Fleet Commander's flagship a few hundred miles away in the Sea of Japan. Thinking it a low priority issue, Navy officials dispatch the Reservist to run a mission to evacuate scientists from a nearby island. Events on the island will not only reunite him with an old love interest but also place him in a position to affect the balance of power between the U.S. and China for years to come.
For Mature Audiences Only: Explicit language and situational violence. Must be 18 years of age to purchase.
"Would hold its own against masters of the genre like Robert Ludlum and Clive Cussler." ( Today's Librarian)

Only 3 reviews, but I bought this based on the strength of them. They were right. I would recommend this over and over. The use of a cast of speakers also set this apart. This was probably the best I have gotten from Audible, even above The Company and Odd Thomas.

Distracting sound effects ruin story
This audio book is interesting. Unfortunately, the presentation is poor. The decision to have several readers act the various parts is helpful however the accompanying sound-effect background noises competes with the narration drowning it out over long parts. Worse, these background noises can be electronic whines (simulating loud engine noises) which would be annoying all by themselves. This would be an excellent read if it were possible to eliminate these noises. With them, I'm afraid the book will not be possible to finish.
