Description

By the close of the twentieth century, China had gathered secret information concerning the United States' underwater surveillance and guided-missile technology. How much the sensitive knowledge would impact China's military capabilities was unknown.Until 2005. The technology is in production in China's new breed of intercontinental ballistic missiles, submarine sonars, and satellite deep-sea observation systems. The Pentagon and the White House are alarmed.At the forefront of the new technology is China's new ICBM submarine, Xia III, which may have the capacity to hurl a nuclear warhead clear across the Pacific Ocean and take out an American West Coast city.Admiral Arnold Morgan, the President's National Security Adviser, isn't going to sit back and wait for it to happen. He dispatches the most lethal hunter-killer submarine in the U.S. fleet, the 9,000-ton ultrasecret Seawolf, deep into the dark, forbidden waters of the China Sea.They are able to elude the People's Liberation Navy until, without warning, the most shocking accident occurs due south of Canton. Seawolf is suddenly, catastrophically at the mercy of the Chinese, her crew captive, the $1 billion ship in enemy hands. And if the true identity of Seawolf's executive officer becomes known, the repercussions will cause the biggest confrontation between Beijing and Washington in more than forty years.Admiral Morgan, at the risk of starting World War III, orders SPECWARCOM to send in the Navy SEALs to rescue the Americans at all costs. It is the biggest Special Forces assault force assembled since the Vietnam War. Their orders as they embark on their journey to a remote Chinese island are brutally straightforward: failure is not an option. Success is paramount for the Pentagon, the Navy, the President, and the United States. Defeat, or even discovery, is unthinkable.
