Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

David Poyer mixes first hand experience with a gift for character and drama to create big, electrifying, realistic Navy thrillers. Now, Commander Dan Lenson takes over a dangerously dysfunctional ship-headed into the heart of the war on terror...

A NEW KIND OF SOLDIER

Around the globe, Navy crews train to fight missiles, planes, torpedoes and terrorism. But the Navy is being shaken from within, as women prepare for combat duty. On the Spruance class destroyer USS Thomas Horn, some men won't accept the females. Some are going to trust them with their lives...

A NEW KIND OF WAR

In the teeming waters of the Middle East, an innocent looking fishing boat could be a devastating suicide bomb. On shore, an American Muslim Naval investigator knows one of the world's most deadly terrorists is about to strike. And on Horn, Dan Larsen has fought to turn his ship around, fought a superior who wants him to fail and fought the forbidden impulses he shares with his beautiful exec. But for everyone on Horn, from SEALs to seamen, a moment of harrowing truth is coming. A long journey has brought the ship onto ground zero--as the enemy prepares to unleash a horrifying new weapon...

"Plows fearlessly...Poyer's genius for description impresses on page after page. The vividness of his scene-setting grabs you."

--Virginian-Pilot

"[An] explosive climax."

--Proceedings

Synopsis:

A terrorist targets a United States Navy ship stationed in the Persian Gulf in this eighth Dan Lenson novel by the modern master of military sea adventure. Martin's Press.

Synopsis:

After receiving the Congressional Medal of Honor for action in Iraq, Commander Daniel V. Lenson is given new orders: "Take over as skipper of USS Thomas W. Horn." His mission: Prepare the Tomahawk-equipped strike destroyer and her crew for the Red Sea, where she'll join an international task force searching for weapons of mass destruction. But this will be no routine deployment. Horn will be the first US Navy warship to deploy with an integrated male and female crew--a controversial and politically explosive experiment that will raise questions about morale, behavior, training, sexual attraction, and ultimately, performance under fire. Facing sandstorms, smugglers, and ambushes, Horn's increasingly polarized crew will conduct demanding, diplomatically sensitive search-and-seizure operations against foreign vessels attempting to smuggle arms to Iraq. But the real nightmare is brewing in Bahrain. There the most dangerous bomb expert in Al-Qaeda has targeted Horn for attack--as the first step in a plan to redraw the map of the whole Middle East. With gripping action scenes and an explosive climax, The Command continues Dan Lenson's star-crossed career in a series that explores both global and deeply personal implications of honor, duty, power, and war.
