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.
