Monteith's book holds up to the heavy weights. First, let's start with the book's outline and then the Pros Vs. Cons.

After an Israeli submarine is hijacked a former US military officer, now considered a traitor for his prior actions, sets out to stop the sub from penetrating the US missile defense shield and
