Shattered Trident

Larry Bond. Forge, $27.99 (384p) ISBN 978-0-7653-3147-2
In bestseller Bond’s exciting fourth novel featuring aviator-turned-submariner Jerry Mitchell (after 2012’s Exit Plan), Jerry commands the U.S.S. North Dakota, one of the most deadly attack submarines in the Navy. With expanded sonar capabilities, a new hull design, no periscope, and other updates, this is definitely not your father’s submarine. Jerry and crew, while trailing a Chinese sub in the South China Sea, witness the sinking of a Vietnamese merchant ship, which is the first blow struck in what will become a shooting war between China and the Littoral Alliance: Vietnam, India, Japan, and several other Asian Rim countries. The U.S., in its neutral role, attempts to buy time to come up with a plan that will avert nuclear war. This is a classic submarine thriller, modern-style, with plenty of underwater action. As the politicos strategize, Jerry does what he does best—which is drive the sub and save the day. Agent: Robert Gottlieb, Trident Media. (May)
