Espionage was nothing new to Captain Larry McGraw and the crew of the USS Charlotte, a Los Angeles--class fast attack submarine. But this mission certainly was. Docked onto the hull of his sub was the new, state-of-the-art Advanced SEAL Delivery System, complete with 16 highly trained SEALs. Orders from the White House were simple, yet clear. Penetrate the Bo Hai Bay--a mere hundred miles from Beijing--and linger while the SEALS conduct nighttime missions. Simple, as long as they weren't detected. But if spotted inside the shallow bay, the orders were clear. McGraw couldn't let the Charlotte or the ASDS fall into Chinese hands, even if it meant destroying both.

About the Author:

Hello Folks, I'm a twelfth generation American, tracing my roots back to John Alden, who ventured to the new world aboard the Mayflower. I take immense pride in my country as the ultimate bastion of freedom. I'm also proud of my profession; that of a first generation, subsidy-free, farmer. I grow forage grass seed, hay and wheat in one of the many fertile valleys of Southern Oregon with the help of my family. When I'm not farming, hiking or camping with the Boy Scouts, I write. To date, I have published two novels; Time Bomb Ticking and its sequel, Choosing Sides. The next book in the series, Die Hard Patriots, is scheduled to be released in the fall of 2015. It chronicles the life of Cal Stockton as he contends with a series of life-altering events and finds himself the leader of a new revolutionary movement composed of--you guessed it--Die Hard Patriots. If you love this country and occasionally worry about the direction it's heading in, his journey--and that of his fellow Die Hard Patriots--could be your journey. With any luck, the fourth book will be out in the spring of 2016, with several more to follow. Thanks for looking at my Amazon webpage and if you should read one or all of my books, please, write a review. I would greatly appreciate it.  Hyrum Laney hyrum@hyrumlaney.me

Review:

5.0 out of 5 stars Air Force approval. By Thomas A. Dwyeron Being an old Air Force pilot, I don't spend too much time reading novels about our Silent Service. This is not to slight our submariners. They have and still do a great and thankless job. A friend recommended I read Time Bomb Ticking. I did so and rate it right up there with Tom Clancy's HUNT FOR RED OCTOBER. It's hard to put down once you get into it. Very believable, very suspenseful. Believe it or not, it's a first novel by a man whose main interest is farming. Well done, Mr. Laney. --Thomas A. Dwyeron

5.0 out of 5 stars At last! An action novel involving real humans! By Arthur Alspectoron Besides being a well-written submarine action novel with a believable conjured plot line, this story involved characters which the author actually gave genuine human assets. All of the military (naval) descriptions were there which very good and the story had plenty of action, but the protagonist and associated characters were gentlemen with reasonable conversations, all easy to follow and interesting. Reading this book was almost like watching a movie and the turns and twists it took delighted me and made me want to nurse the novel so I wouldn't finish it. Yes, the ending left me hanging and impatiently waiting for the sequel which is supposed to be out next Fall. I can hardly wait. I hope this author writes many, many more action novels using his superb style and military imagination. An excellent read! --Arthur Alspectoron

5.0 out of 5 stars Can't wait for the sequel! By Richard Szymanskion A great riveting read! I couldn't put the book down. At the end of the book I wanted more! There were too many dynamics at the end of the book to have it end abruptly. From other reviews,it's stated that the book started slow, but I felt just the opposite. With the amount of people in the story, the author needed to develop their characters more to help the reader understand they're roles more personally versus just a select few. In all, I really enjoyed the action, mystery, chain of command leadership, political badgering and almost expected responses from Washington bureaucracy. I look forward to the sequel and hope the author keeps us readers as riveted as Time Bomb Ticking! --Richard Szymanskion
