When a Soviet captain uses one of the fleet's most destructive yet valuable nuclear submarines as an escape vehicle, the United States and the Soviets race to stop the sub.

I'm one of the few that haven't seen the apparently popular movie version, thinking a movie about slow speed submarine chases would be pretty tedious. But I finally decided to give the audio book a try. No surprises here. The whole plot line was, as I had feared, a tad tedious. On the plus side, the audio reader did a good job, speaking the text clearly and faithfully rendering the author's intended tone. And a reader who's interested in military hardware and cold war strategy, they'd probably find the details conveyed interesting. As for me, this book remains about slow speed submarine chases, and is not particularly compelling. I would have liked it better probably had the book undergone some judicious editing, & condensed to about half the length.
