THOMAS, Craig. Sea Leopard. (Scarborough, Ont.) : Nelson Canada Limited., (1981). Pp (6),7-[316],(4). 8vo, green cloth, gilt lettering to spine. With map end-papers. David Craig Owen Thomas (b. November 24, 1942, Cardiff - d.April 4, 2011, Somerset). "In the still dark hours of early morning, HMS P roteus, 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. But sharp eyes do see Proteus leave leave and the telephone wires hum betweeren Scotland and the Soviet embassy in London. Lulled by a huge sense ofachievement, the Admiralty allows Proteus to be lured away from her missio n into a trap with a faked distress signal from a Russian nuclear submarinelying '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 in Britain for the brilliant inventor of 'Leopard' who has mysteriously disappeared. 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 thegirl. Proteus shows up for the first time on a Russian infrared screen: a torpedo is fired, and the trap is sprung.. . Craig Thomas brilliantly juxtaposes two incredibly exciting stories and, as with his best-selling books Firefox and Snow Falcon, the drama is compulsive and enthralling." (from thedj). .
