About this Item

Hardcover with dustjacket : very good minus / fair plus. Jacket in new mylar protector; jacket has edge wear with some short tears and small chips; moderate scratching and rubbing; dampstain moderately on the outside but also on the unseen back side where the red of the book bled onto the jacket, although the book is only slightly affected; no price on jacket. Book is a red cloth hardcover with silver lettering on spine and a stamped illustration of submarine and hammer and sickle on front; gray endpapers; no additional printings stated on copyright page thus indicating a first printing by this publisher. The binding has light wear along bottom edge with the cloth worn through a small bit at front corner; a small amount of the red is rubbed off along that bottom edge; very slight soiling to outer edges of text block; slight rippling to a few pages in the middle. Inscribed and signed on ffep by Tom Clancy to Clive Cussler, with a fun inscription. The signature is different than is usually seen, but there is enough similarities between the writing that makes it seem likely that Clancy wrote with a deliberate and slower hand than usual; also, the dedication to Ralph Chatham has been partly crossed out and rewritten in Clancy's hand with a humorous reference to Coonts. Photos will be uploaded soon. Bookseller Inventory # 070263

About this title

Synopsis:

Also Availble as an Audio Edition from Audible via Amazon
 


Tom Clancy's rich imagination and his remarkable grasp of the capabilities of advanced technology give this novel an amazing ring of authenticity. It is a thriller with a new twist, a "military procedural" with an ingenious, tightly woven plot that revolves around the defection of a Soviet nuclear submarine--the USSR's newest and most valuable ship, with its most trusted and skilled officer at the helm.


A deadly serious game of hide-and-seek is on. The entire Soviet Atlantic Fleet is ordered to hunt down the submarine and destroy her at all costs. The Americans are determined to find her first and get her safely to port in the intelligence coups of all time. But the Red October has a million square miles of ocean to hide in and a new silent propulsion system that is impossible to detect. Or is it?


Her daring and cunning captain, Marko Ramius, thinks so. The commander of the Soviet's fastest attack submarine, however, is confident that he will find his prey. And Bart Mancuso, the aggressive commander of the U.S. Navy attack sub the Dallas, is counting on the sensitive ears of his resourceful young sonar operator to identify Red October's unique sound print and track her down.


The nerve-wracking hunt goes on for eighteen days as the Red October stealthily eludes her hunters across 4,000 miles of ocean. But just short of Ramius's objective, his submarine converges with the others in a rousing climax that is one of the most thrilling underwater scenes ever written. Can the start of all-out war be avoided? The outcome is clear only on the very last pages.

Review:

Somewhere under the Atlantic, a Soviet sub commander has just made a fateful decision: the Red October is heading west. The Americans want her. The Russians want her back. And the most incredible chase in history is on....

The Hunt for Red October is the runaway bestseller that launched Tom Clancy's phenomenal career. A military thriller so accurate and convincing that the author was rumored to have been debriefed by the White House. Its theme: the greatest espionage coup in history. Its story: the chase for a runaway top secret Russian missile sub.
