From the Publisher:

"Flannery's Lane is the equal of Clancy's Jack Ryan and almost as charismatic as Clive Cussler's Dirk Pitt." --The Milwaukee Journal Sentinel

"Flannery's latest geo-political thriller is a winner." --San Francisco Examiner

"Sean Flannery's novel serves admirably the oldest and most primal of literature's purposes--to divert us, to transport us, and to allow us to dream." --The Washington Post

"Sean Flannery is good at what he does--very good." --Minneapolis Star Tribune

From Publishers Weekly:

Top-flight adventure writer Flannery brings back U.S. military intelligence analyst Bill Lane and his lover, British agent Frannie Shipley, this time hot on the trail of an old Russian submarine, which is said to have been sunk with all hands but has in fact been sold to unfriendly powers. While Lane (perhaps the best-dressed espionage agent since James Bond) tries to locate the sub and identify the purchaser, he and Frannie must also deal with Valeri Yernin, a psychopathic Russian assassin who has sworn to kill them both in revenge for a previous mission they foiled. The scenes shift swiftly among Switzerland, London, the Channel Islands and the sub's ever-changing locations as it slides underwater toward its mysterious destination. Plenty of shoot-em-ups set the stage for the final violent confrontation between Yernin, Lane and Frannie (herself no mean markswoman), capped by a final explosive submarine event. As in the previous Bill Lane adventures (Winner Take All and Kilo Option), the good guys are sympathetic and responsible and even most of the bad guys have some humanity. One hopes we'll be seeing more of Bill and Frannie.
