National Security Advisor Vice Admiral Arnold Morgan leads the US Navy's efforts to stop the Barracuda 945 at sea. However, even with the help of the National Security Agency the US Navy struggles to locate the deadly nuclear sub for several weeks until they locate the Barracuda 945 in the Panama Canal. Confrontation between two brilliant leaders and their crew occur with much at stake.

Though the historical soliloquies can be overwhelming, they bring a sense of reality to a powerful action-packed sea adventure that will remind readers of Sink the Bismarck. The story line is going at the fastest knots, but also insures the key two antagonists plus Morgan's friend, Assistant to the Director of the National Security Agency Lieutenant Commander James Ramshawe, are more than just 200 proof testosterone. Instead readers feel their frustrations and excitement. Patrick Robinson's latest Morgan thriller is a solid tale that fans will enjoy the high-speed sea chase.
