In the frozen waters of the Arctic, Marine bioterror expert Joe Rush races to save a submarine crew from a lethal threat...

"The pleas for help stopped coming just after five in the morning, Washington time. The Pentagon staffers cleared for handling sensitive messages sat in horror for a moment and then tried other ways to reach the victims. Nothing worked so they called the Director, who phoned me."

In the remote, frozen waters of the Arctic Ocean, the high-powered and technically advanced submarine U.S.S. Montana is in peril. Adrift and in flames, the boat--and the entire crew--could be lost. The only team close enough to get to them in time is led by Marine doctor and bio-terror expert Joe Rush.

With only thirty-six hours before the surviving crew perish, Joe and his team must race to rescue the Montana and ensure that the boat doesn't fall into enemy hands. Because a fast-approaching foreign submarine is already en route, and tensions may explode.

But that's the least of their troubles. For the surviving sailors are not alone on the sub. Something is trapped with them. Something deadly lethal. Something that plagued mankind long ago, when it devastated the entire world. And the crew of the Montana has unknowingly set it free. Now, Joe and his team must not only find a way to save the Montana and her crew, but stop a lethal horror of apocalyptic consequence from being unleashed on all humanity.

If you need your military thrillers to be spot-on with their details, then whoo-eee, this book is not the one for you. But if you enjoy a fast-paced story with an interesting (if relatively undeveloped) cast of characters and a setting different from what we're used to, then you'll find this an enjoyable and quick confection of a read.

This was an arctic adventure/thriller with some good action and suspense.

Story, characters, writing - meh.
Concept was promising. Execution lacking. Not a bad plane read.

A non-stop thriller set in the Arctic Ocean with a team of military scientists rushing to save the crew of an atomic submarine who are infected with an unknown disease. The astonishing and intense story features Joe Rush, a naval officer and a doctor with an expertise in bioterrorism. Too many plot convolutions kept me from giving this a higher score, but I look forward to the future exploits of Dr. Rush.

Joe Rush is a bio-terrorism expert and physician who can make the hard decisions. He is sent to the Arctic Ocean to rescue a sub that has a sick crew with an unknown disease. The sub is on fire. This is the exciting though predictable premise for the book. Its scary because you can believe the conspiracy behind the scenes.

Exciting from the beginning right through the final twist.
