Following the events Jerry Mitchell encountered in Dangerous Ground , the pilot-turned-submarine officer is now a department head, the navigator, aboard USS Seawolf . Now on a mission deep in the Barents Sea, north of Russia, Seawolf explores the sea floor, part of a sophisticated reconnaissance plan that will watch the Russian navy as it trains for battle. Although well outside Russia's territorial waters, Seawolf is ambushed by Russia's newest submarine, Severodvinsk . Although it doesn't fire any weapons, its aggressive new captain, Alexi Petrov, harasses the intruder with dangerously fast, insanely close passes by the American boat. The two subs collide, with the Russian boat crippled and trapped on the bottom. Only Seawolf knows where she is, and the rest of the Russian fleet is too angry to listen. Mitchell and his shipmates have to keep their own damaged boat afloat, figure out a way to make the Russians listen, and keep the trapped Russian submariners alive until they can be saved - if that is even possible.

Best submarin book ever!! :)

One of the best submarine warfare novels I've read. ( - Much more realistic than Patrick Robinson for instance.) A very tense tale of a Russian commander 'cracking up' and the results of the incident.

Would make an exciting action adventure movie.
American sub rammed by Russian sub which causes the Russian sub to sink to the bottom to be finally rescued by the damaged American Sub "Seawolf". Lots of fantastic descriptions of weather, equipment, people, relationships,.... also the behind the scenes politicking especially the paranoid Russians. The American politicians and their face-saving actions are overshadowed by the skilled submariners. Good read.
