A new novel by the author of Ru n Silent, Run Deep and Dust on the Sea. “Now, fifteen years after the end of World War II, the United States Navy is converting its fleet of conventional submarines to nuclear-powered ships that can remain submerged indefinitely and have a capacity for devastating fire- power. The Cushing, one of our most advanced submarines whose sixteen missile silos can carry more plosive power than all the munitions used in both world wars, is sent on a secret mission to the Arctic Ocean to determine whether her missiles are effective when fired from beneath the ice. When Cushing is incapacitated, with a suspicion Russian sub lurking in the vicinity, the scene is set for a dramatic novel rich in all the technical detail and submarine lore that have entertained millions of readers of Captain Beach's other novels.” (from the dj).
