This is not what I expected at all. This is a great, fast read. It also is very eye-opening. I enjoyed all of the characters representing all of New York. I would like it to be made into a movie but that is unlikely as it would require the World Trade Center towers to be present.
This was a good novel set in what was modern day New York City (prior to 9/11). Fleet week has begun and ships of all nationalities have arrived for the ceremonies - including some unknown and uninvited Chinese guests in the form of submarines and other vessels. This become a battle with a tugboat captain, his very new girlfriend, and the government and citizens of New York City versus the big, bad Chinese. The action is nonstop.
I would give this 3.5 stars. My dad/brothers would probably enjoy this book more that I did as it feels Clancy-esque. I accidentally picked this book up from the library when I was looking for the same titled book by a different author. It was a good action book, despite not being of my favorite genre - good enough that I kept reading it when I realized that I had picked up the wrong book.
