THOMAS, Craig. Sea Leopard. London : Michael Joseph, (1981). First Edition.Pp (6),7-[316],(4).. 8vo, green cloth, gilt lettering to spine. With map e nd-papers. David Craig Owen Thomas (b. November 24, 1942, Cardiff - d. April 4, 2011, Somerset). "In the still dark hours of early morning, HMS Proteus, the latest British nuclear submarine, slips secretely from her Scottish base and heads for the Barents sea. She is the only boat using the top-secret anti-sonar sustem, code-named "Leopard", which renders her undetectable to her enemies. Sea trials completed, her first mission is to chart a new Soviet underwater defence system which threatens NATO's northern flanks. Butsharp eyes do see Proteus leave leave and the telephone wires hum betweere n Scotland and the Soviet embassy in London. Lulled by a huge sense of achievement, the Admiralty allows Proteus to be lured away from her mission into a trap with a faked distress signal from a Russian nuclear submarine lying 'crippled' in a Norwegian fjord. Kenneth Aubrey, Deputy Director of British Intelligence, believes that Proteus rescue mission is far more dangerous than anyone realises - as dangerous as the hunt the KGB are conducting inBritain for the brilliant inventor of 'Leopard' who has mysteriously disap peared. The only person who knows his whereabouts is his daughter and as Aubrey's agent, Patrick Hyde, races against time and the KGB to find the girl. Proteus shows up for the first time on a Russian infrared screen: a torpedo is fired, and the trap is sprung.. . Craig Thomas brilliantly juxtaposestwo incredibly exciting stories and, as with his best-selling books Firefo x and Snow Falcon, the drama is compulsive and enthralling." (from the dj)..
