What readers are saying...
"Being a Shipfitters wife, whose Navy husband was on a few Submarine Tenders - this was a great story. All I can say is "More, More, More !"

"For historical fiction, Scott Cook is dialed in..."

"This is a story that any sailor, sub or surface, would enjoy! It is just technical enough, but the crew is realistic and exciting to follow."
