Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

An elite U.S. Navy crew on a shakedown mission with an experimental submarine...

The mission was clear: Test a revolutionary propulsion system exponentially faster and quieter than any that has come before. If successful, America's supremacy in naval warfare would be assured.

An intractable enemy desperate to learn their secret...

For a thousand miles, the American boat is stalked by a Chinese submarine until a reckless attempt at espionage puts them on a collision course with disaster. Now, the shattered boats lie locked in a frozen embrace 150 feet below the Arctic waves. Each crippled sub needs the other to survive until rescue comes, but can rival warriors stand together against the harshest environment on Earth?

The L.A.S.E.R. team put to the ultimate test...

The U.S. military's Land Air Sea Emergency Rescue team has been summoned. These extraordinary rescuers must call upon their training, intelligence, and inexhaustible courage in a part of the world where no one else can-or is willing to-reach. And still, the clock ticks away the minutes until any attempt will come too late.

"Rovin weaves a story so intricate and intense, readers will find themselves clutching the edge of their seats...the nail-biting suspense and rousing heroism may push Rovin out of Clancy's shadow for good."

-Publishers Weekly

Synopsis:

From the New York Times bestselling writer of Tom Clancy's Op-Center series, a relentlessly paced techno-thriller that plunges readers into the icy depths of the Antarctic.

An experimental U.S. Submarine, the Tempest D, with a propulsion system five-times-faster than traditional drives is to be tested in the remote South Polar waters. Chinese intelligence learns of the test and sends their own submarine to observe. When an underwater collision causes the sumarines to become trapped under the Antarctic ice, they need each other to survive. Meanwhile, a U.S. military team codenamed L.A.S.E.R.-- Land Air Sea Emergency Rescue-- is sent on an unprecedented rescue mission . . . under the Polar cap, every minute matters.

Combining inernational political intrigue, exotic locales and insider details, Tempest Down delivers the same high-tech edge that Jeff Rovin brings to Tom Clancy's Op-Center books.
