Dan Lenson is back again, this time riding on a South Korean Frigate as part of a Naval TAG team observing a multinational exercise in Korean waters. Events take a turn when a group of unidentified submarines head for South Korean waters.

The plot is fairly predictable, in fact most of it is contained in the blurb and the outcome is never really in question. On the other hand the mechanics of how that outcome is achieved are interesting, imaginative and as far as I can tell, plausible. Mr Poyer'
Military at sea. I'd not read any of the Dan Lenson tales, so any references to his other exploits were lost to me. But I do love a sea story. Braving typhoons and a sudden attack by North Korea, the action is tense, and the idea that the real attack might come from sea on Pusan and its strategic depth and location for military supply purposes was interesting and something to note. The romanized Korean was odd.
By far the best of the series. Plot works; author isn't trying to force-feed anti-military attitudes, lots of interesting new information, and more suspense than any Lenson novel since The Command (but, unlike that one, the suspense here is evenly baked, not crammed into the end).
Great Naval fiction. This time Lensen is riding a South Korean warship during an exercise. Great job capturing the different cultural philosophical differences between Korean and American Navies. Timely and current with todays frictions between North and South Korea.
Compared to the other Poyer books I've read, it was marginally better. The plot wasn't as totally unbelievable as the others and the action was even suspenseful at times. Still, I wouldn't rush to recommend it.
Poyer does not disappoint again with another Dan Lensen thriller. Lots of technical stuff that I don't understand, but I really like his writing anyway. He just keeps getting better.
David Poyer's books start out slow but when the action starts it is non stop. I am still neutral on this series but I will reserve final judgement until I have read more
A Bit slow,
