I enjoyed the first book in the series so much I decided to read book two. Christine O’Conner is the president’s national security advisor. She advises against signing the Maer Accord about the mutual access to environmental resources between the U.S. and her allies. The Accord severely limits China’s access to natural resources. O’Conner said this will lead to war with China; the Chief or Staff says it will not lead to war. O’Conner flies to China to attempt to offset a war but she is arrested and confined to a cell; as China goes to war. She escapes and eventually end up on the U.S. Michigan, a trident submarine.
Three American submarines are immediately destroyed as China launches war. China’s missiles and ships are more sophisticated than expected and she has many many more than does the Pacific Fleet. When China gets the Pacific Fleet exactly where they want it, they also launch cyberwarfare.
The book is well written and is non-stop action. The battle scenes are real nail biters. The book seems quite realistic. I could hardly put the book down. This is a great military action novel.
I read this as an audiobook downloaded from Audible. The book is about thirteen and a half hours long. Fred Berman does a great job narrating the book. Berman is an actor and award winning audiobook narrator.

I'm a retired Submarine Chief (Nuclear Electronics Technician). I'm a Plank owner on the Kentucky and the Annapolis was my second submarine. This was one of the most interesting books that I've listened to and I've listened to quite a few. I've read many more from a bunk on a submarine and I would say that this ranks very high on my list of great reads. For those that are concerned about the accuracy of the novel, I would say chill out its fiction and the author as a retired Navy man is limited on the actual facts and capabilities that he can divulge. Looking forward to the next book which comes out in a couple weeks.
