And I know this isn't a book but the movie Below is a great ghost story set on a sub.

HMS UlyssesSouth by Java Head

Actually, just check out Alistair MacLean he writes a really good story, and I think that in addition to the 2 I linked and the one linked by John (message #4) I think that he has at least 1 or 2 more that might fit your trope.

And of course, there are the books by Clive Cussler most of which are set on ships of one description or another.

``Laurie (laurielynette) | 1039 comments When I read The Winds of War and its sequel:

War and Remembrance

I recall the youngest son's adventures while serving on a submarine being extremely exciting to read. Of course this wasn't the main theme of the book but the submarine segments certainly had my heart pounding.
