This is the third book in this series. The author does an exemplary job of describing the period British submarines. That being said, this particular book lacks the exhilarating pace of the previous 2 books in the series. The book comes across as a literary version of the Film Noir style of movies. He seems to get lost in the minutiae of the story at the expense of the fast paced drama in the previous two books. The reader can become quickly bogged down in plodding details. Still, the book is wo ...more

Generally, a great book to read. I enjoyed the dialog / banter between the characters mostly. After reading this book; it was interesting to read the true life events which contributed to the story. It was nice to get a good 'picture' of the underwater challenges of WW1. The book seemed well researched and offers the reader page after page of action and suspense.

Another great one

I have become hooked on Fullerton's Nick Everhardt series about naval warfare during World War I. If you are a fan of naval history filled with suspense, this is for you.

It was OK but burdened by too much jargon (I realize that this is some of the appeal for a certain type of reader). The plot also fell into an unfortunate degree of silliness towards the end which undermined the tension that had preceded it.

Fullerton has done it again. His Navy background, plus meticulous research, has created a book that evokes the feeling of serving on a claustrophobic WWI submarine. I only wish he were still around to create more amazing nautical tales. Highly recommended.

Good action, but way to much detail on his thoughts and the other characters.

Great adventure.

A rattling good yarn full of nailbiting suspense. If only the cover pictures were the right historical period, it would be perfect.

Not my favourite.

Well researched as expected, but there is so much detail in the characters that it makes the story hard to read. might enjoy it more than I did.

Very good

The main character of this series takes more of a back seat for much of this story but it is still very enjoyable. I really got the sense of how it must have been in submarines, especially trying to get through nets and minefields.
Nicholas Everard is part of a submarine crew sent, in the waning weeks of the First World War, to the Bosporus Straits to help bottle up the Turkish fleet in harbor there.
