    This is a new author and narrator for me. I did note this was book three in a series. The book was fairly short at six hours so thought I would use it to sample the series. The protagonist in the series is Danny Jabo, a submarine officer. The author provides a view at Navy life as Jabo has to pack up on the East coast and again move to the West coast with his wife and child. The story goes back and forth between life at sea and family on shore.The opening got my attention with the Zulu Five Oscar. This was a security exercise which attempted to have a man get on a submarine, obtain classified material then report immediately to the Captain or XO of his success. The boat goes to sea and returns with suspense building because of actions of a protestor turn saboteur. The author uses suspense and humor to tell his story. The pace is fast as the book is fairly short. The story is fairly typical of a modern-day Navy story. The book is well written and the plot is somewhat typical for the genre. There are several characters I found interesting and would like to follow in future books. I will be looking forward to reading this series.Graham Halstead does a good job narrating the story. He is a new narrator to me. Halstead is an actor, voice-over artist and multi-award winning audiobook narrator.

    Another Tucker winnerAn exciting submarine thriller that vividly details the life of a crew member both abroad and at home. Added suspense of attempted sabatog.

    The 60's protest movement is not dead in the water as a lone protagonist is set to relive his past rebellious activities by damaging or destroying a nuclear submarine. Only this is 2014 and he must face a new military, a new Navy, a new type of mariner who is not going to allow any security breach. At least that is what the Navy believes and there is someone who does breach the system to the attention of the command. So can an aged. old school war protester break the system? The action takes place below and above the water in the is third novel by Tucker, when Lieutenant Commander as XO of his newest assignment works to build a strong team of mariners under his command. However like all the rest of Tucker's novels there is a fly in the ointment that causes complications to Jabo's best laid plans.

    Really good story This is the third in the Danny Jabo series. All three are well written and have good believable stories. This isn't a "Hunt for Red October " style tale, but it does offer a great glimpse into the life of a submariner on a US Trident missile boat. I feel this was a first release though as there were a lot of grammatical errors and left out words. Could really benefit from a good proofread. I'm an Air Force vet and enjoyed the revisit to military life.

    Nostalgic, excellent truthful and utterly believable.Not exactly a "Submarine" story. If you were never in the Navy or, especially, a "Boat". It might be boring. For those of us who know that there are two different Navy ships, Submarines and targets , it was an enjoyable and nostalgic read. There were 4 wrong words. The problem is I can' t figure out how to transfer the notes I made. Not big glaring oops just some simular words but not correct.

    This book had all the elements I've come to enjoy in the Danny Jabo series, including lots of authentic Navy jargon. The only reason I'm giving it four stars instead of five is because much of the action takes place ashore rather than on a submarine.

    Really four and a half stars, but I rounded up. A good story, well paced, and interesting to boot! Easy reading but the dialog kept slowing me down . . . it sounded so true to the place that it was said. I'd read other books by this author.

    Loved this series. My only complaint about this book is that it seemed short. Amazing how well written--easy to follow for someone who is definitely NOT part of the Navy or submarine world!

    A divergent military novelI favor naval history and novels. This one was a bit different, although not one with a lot of action, it was entertaining.
