“Unfamiliar and exciting territory—a magnificent yarn!” Greg Bear, New York Times best-selling author of Darwin’s Radio, Eon, and Blood Music

An accident at a German nuclear plant and a biological warfare attack on the British Embassy in Washington, DC, have put the United States government on full alert. The attack, together with an illegal arms deal between a trusted NATO ally and a rogue Middle Eastern state, has ignited an international crisis that threatens to draw Western Europe, the Middle East, and America into all-out war.

To defuse the escalating conflict, Commander Samuel (Jim) Bowie and the crew of USS Towers must join forces with a handful of U.S. Navy destroyers and frigates to hunt down and destroy a wolfpack of state-of-the-art submarines. Their enemy is a NATO ally trained in U.S. naval warfare tactics, skilled in deception, and thoroughly lethal. Out-gunned, out-maneuvered, and out-thought, the crews of the U.S. Navy ships must become as devious as their enemy. If they fail, the consequences are unthinkable.

TORPEDO kicks ass! Smart and involving, with an action through-line that shoots ahead like its namesake—fast and lethal. I read it in one sitting.”—PAUL L. SANDBERG, Producer of The Bourne Supremacy

"A timeless warrior epic. Jeff Edwards spins a stunning and irresistibly believable tale of savage modern naval combat."—JOE BUFF, Best-selling Author of Seas of Crisis, Crush Depth, and Straits of Power

“Edwards wields politics and naval combat tactics with a skill equal to the acknowledged masters of military fiction.”—The Military Press
