Jerry Mitchell is on exercises off the coast of Pakistan when his submarine, the USS Michigan, is ordered to a rendezvous off the Iranian coast. Once there, disembarked SEALs---experts in seaborne commando operations---are to extract two Iranian nationals who have sensitive information on Iran’s nuclear weapons program.

While en route to shore, Michigan’s mini-sub suffers a battery fire, killing one crew member and forcing the survivors---four SEALs and LCDR Mitchell---to scuttle their disabled craft and swim for shore. There they find the two Iranians waiting for them, but their attempts at returning to Michigan are thwarted by heavy Iranian patrol boat activity. When agents of Iran’s secret police, VEVAK, appear, escape seems all but impossible.

When Mitchell and his men find themselves surrounded by Iranian Revolutionary Guards Corp troops, they create a bold plan to escape by sea. It’s a desperate gamble, but it’s the only way to get proof of the Iranian plot to the U.S. . . . and prevent a devastating new war.

I've never read this author but enjoyed this one. There was a lot of technical information which reminded of Tom Clancy's books. The story showed our SEALS at their best. It's very pertinent to the current situation in the middle east.

This is how techno-thriller should have been written. After giving up on Tom Clancy's ultra-right-wing narratives, and starving for some intelligent writing in this genre, Larry Bond provided me with what I sorely need.
The balanced view on world affairs, relationships, cultural differences and policy have completely updated this genre from the post 9-11 paranoia-laden / islamophobia thrillers currently swamping the shelves.
Thanks Larry Bond.

This is the genre ... and I pretty much like most written ... that allows me to eshew most movies made during the past decade. Open this one up and two days later you have been introduced to places you would otherwise not have a chance to visit, given a glimpse of other ways of thought and therefore educated and thoroughly entertained.
