    DescriptionWritten in brief episodes, EPTAPH tells the dramatic tale of Russian and American submariners who set out to thwart a terrorist plot to detonate a nuclear device placed at the base of Ellis Island, during the Cuban Missile Crisis. GRANT MCKINNON stands in a January snow storm, watching his USS MIAMI moored at the US Naval Submarine Base in Groton, Connecticut. He is troubled by a message he has just received from VALERIK DANYANKOV, Commander of an AKULA class submarine, out of Lapadnaya Lista, the Russian Submarine Base. Their paths had crossed before, in OF ICE AND STEEL, and they had become friends. In the Persian Gulf, near Iran's Bander-E Abbas Naval Base, Commander ASHA FEROZ, aboard his old Russian KILO class submarine, has come up with a way to put into action his master's plan of revenge and destruction. Meanwhile, the Sonar operator aboard the USS TEXAS, in the Persian Gulf to monitor Iran's naval maneuvers as they test a new torpedo, separates a strange signature from the clutter of a fishing fleet. And the chase is on. In this day and age of GPS reckoning and hi-tech listening devices, little moves above, in or under the oceans of the world, without someone seeing it, unless you hide within plain sight. With every turn of the submarines' screws, EPITAPH's tension torques as the commanders converge in the cold waters of New York Harbor.
