Submarine adventure makes for dramatic storytelling, and a British rogue commander amid NATO exercises give a fine contemporary feel to this thriller. The loss of a real Russian sub, recently in the news, makes the story even more compelling. Bill Wallis has all the necessary voices for sub commanders, wives, and Russian admirals. There's never a question as to who is speaking or what the context as Wallis moves smoothly, even between allied subs tracking each other. As the race against time ensues, Wallis's smart pace matches the action, and the listener feels the tension build--in the subs, the naval command center, and in the car as you circle the block unwilling to turn it off!
