THE GREATEST DANGER HIDES IN THE DEPTHS OF DECEIT.
In a Murmansk hotel, a U.S. naval officer is found dead along with a young Russian sailor in what is labeled a murder/suicide -- but American navy commander Jake Scott thinks otherwise. Assigned to escort the dead officer's body back to the United States, Scott discovers that his predecessor had uncovered a secret that cost him his life -- and may cost Scott even more. Aided by alluring weapons expert Alexandra Thorne, Jake uncovers a conspiracy of betrayal, terror, and vengeance intended to target a tense summit meeting of the American and Russian presidents. Taking the helm of a Russian sub, Scott must race against the clock -- and face off against an unseen enemy under the waves -- if he hopes to prevent a nuclear strike that could ignite World War III.
Peter Sasgen served in the U.S. Navy and later worked as a graphic designer and photographer in Washington, D.C., and Philadelphia. His nonfiction book Red Scorpion was inspired by his father, who served aboard the USS Rasher for all eight of her war patrols, as was his submarine thriller War Plan Red (both available from Pocket Star Books).
