Piranha Firing Point Book Summary and Study Guide

Detailed plot synopsis reviews of Piranha Firing Point

In this exciting follow-on from BARRACUDA FINAL BEARING, China splits into two warring factions - pro-communist Red China and pro-democracy White China. As Asia explodes into a major firefight, Red Chinese forces hijack Japanese submarines and attack US forces sent to fight on the side of White China. When several carriers are sunk, it seems that only ace submarine commander Admiral Michael Pacino and a brand new experimental sub the SSNX DEVILFISH can save the day. But even in the future, new technology does not always run as planned!
