About this title

Synopsis:

As the Soviets rush to activate their secret underwater power plant, hot-shot fighter pilot Rick Tallman is given command of the unproven Steel Albatross, the U.S. underwater glider

From Library Journal:

In the September 15 Prepub Alert column LJ asked, "Does an astronaut have the write stuff for a technothriller?" The answer is a qualified "yes." One of the orig inal seven U.S. astronauts, Carpenter was also a fighter pilot and a participant in the Navy's underwater SEALAB pro gram. The technology here is both authentic-sounding and startling: an under water "glider" plane; human beings medically altered to breathe fluid through their necks. The plot is rather standard fare, however. While testing the Steel Albatross, a prototype underwater glider, Rick Tallman, hotshot son of a naval astronaut (surprise), stumbles on a top-secret Soviet installation off the coast of California. It seems that right-wing extremists in the USSR plan to knock out the U.S. defense system and precipitate war between the USSR and the United States. Carpenter's book has the elements of a thriller, but it lacks the edge-of-the-seat tension of books like The Hunt for Red October . Publicity and the author's name will bring demand.
