About this title

Synopsis:

"One of the most satisfying thrillers since Tom Clancy's The Hunt for Red October". -- San Francisco Examiner on Kilo Option

Ex-KGB agent Valeri Yernin, known as "the Surgeon" for the accuracy of his hits, is supposed to be dead. But at the National Security Intercept Center they identify a telephone call originating from Karachi as a ninety-eight percent voice match. In the call, Yernin vows to finally get even with military intelligence analyst Bill Lane.

The Barents Sea, Russia's graveyard for nuclear reactors, is where a Romeo class diesel-electric submarine is supposed to be scuttled. After a mysterious explosion, the sub disappears without a trace and the ship and its crew are presumed lost. Bill Lane, however, suspects that the Russian sub hasn't sunk, and he follows a trail of subsea anomalies all the way to the coast of Morocco. There he discovers that Yernin has masterminded the theft of the sub to use it as a bargaining chip on the black market.

Yernin is ready for Lane this time. He has captured Lieutenant Commander Francis Shipley of the British Intelligence Service, planning to use her relationship with Lane against him -- and he may have finally discovered Bill Lane's Achilles' heel.

"The action is vivid and fast-paced, with plenty of suspense". -- Florida Times-Union on Kilo Option

"Author Flannery gives us nonstop action and a hero that makes Bond look like a wimp". -- Oklahoman on Kilo Option

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

From the Publisher:

"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
