When extremist Islamic pirates attack civilian ships in the Persian Gulf, the United States answers with a next-generation warship, developed at Dreamland, a top-secret facility in the Nevada desert. The ship is nicknamed "Satan's Tail," because of its full range of deadly automated weapons systems, which behave like a thrashing tail. Larry Pressman performs with cool professionalism, using a calm, steady narrative pace coupled with precise military commands. He characterizes battles and combatants with meticulous blow-by-blow descriptions. He fully captures the character of Colonel "Dog" Bastian, who is methodical, calculated, and risk-taking. Fast paced, filled with nonstop action, and multiple story lines, this audio will find favor among the military minded. G.D.W. © AudioFile 2007, Portland, Maine [Published: FEB/ MAR 07]
