Description

You could find best-selling author Patrick Robinson's nail-biting naval technothriller splashed across the front pages of tomorrow's newspapers. It's 2002, and the invincible, nuclear powered Nimitz-Class aircraft carriers and their support ships have earned the respect and fear of seagoing vessels everywhere. Participating in routine exercises in the Indian Ocean, the enormous U.S. Carrier Thomas Jefferson, and her crew of 6,000 suddenly vanish from the radar screens-undeniable proof they have somehow been destroyed. A stunned nation hangs on the President's every word as he proclaims it a freak nuclear accident. But Lieutenant Commander Bill Baldridge, whose brother had commanded the Jefferson, believes there is a more sinister explanation. Afraid for the safety of the remaining carriers, Lt. Baldridge searches for answers on a risky journey that takes you from secretive, foreign military bases to the murky depths of the seas. If you enjoy an explosive plot filled with constant surprises, you won't be able to turn off Patrick Robinson's well-written tale, dramatically narrated by George Guidall.

Professional reviews

"The Nimitz-class carrier U.S.S. THOMAS JEFFERSON disintegrates in an apparent nuclear accident while on patrol in the Persian Gulf in 2002. Lieutenant Commander Bill Baldridge, whose brother was skipper of the carrier, doesn't believe the tragedy to be an accident. In pursuing the truth of what actually happened, he embarks on a journey full of action, intrigue and suspense to such far-flung places as Scotland, Istanbul, Sebastopol and his family's ranch in Pawnee County, Kansas. The reading of this very exciting and detailed work by Guidall is creditable. His baritone voice is clear and easily understood, and he does a fine job reading the narrative descriptions. In attempting to give each character a unique voice and credible accent, he's not as good; his readings of the voices are somewhat uneven, and some of his accents are unconvincing. (This reviewer cannot figure out why folks think rural Kansans sound like Southerners; they don't.) Still, this is a fun work to listen to. M.T.F. (c) AudioFile 2000, Portland, Maine"
