Fans of Robinson's submarine thrillers will be delighted with this latest. Retirement to Admiral Morgan is not a welcome prospect, and sure enough the former National Security Advisor sniffs out a diabolical plot against the U.S. With tsunami and other natural disasters in the news, the threat seems unsettlingly plausible. David McCallum masters the pace and action as a potential geologic disaster looms. He reels off details of the vast mobilization of the Navy's assets, complete with search coordinates, military hardware, and other jargon. McCallum commands the sudden shifts of action and reaction, and he conveys both subtle menace and spoken outbursts with superb skill, and understatement. Listeners won't want to miss a single word.
