The USS "Memphis," a dilapidated submarine that should have been mothballed decades ago, is given one last mission by the newly elected president: sneak illegally into Russian waters and recon the leaking nuclear fuel containers hidden on the floor of the Arctic Ocean.
From the Publisher:
Assigned a final mission aboard a dilapidated submarine, tyrannical commander Lowell Hardy alienates his suffering crew by conducting an illegal search through Russian coastal waters, where they must survey hidden nuclear fuel containers housing enough material to destroy most of America's major cities. Reprint.
Annotation:
In this undersea thriller, clashing tempers make for tense and hazardous moments aboard an about-to-be-decommissioned submarine on a final covert assignment. Commander Lowell Hardy is not pleased when he's ordered to take the "Memphis" on a mission to determine if the Russians have been improperly disposing of nuclear wastes. He's even less pleased at the additions to his previously all-male crew: two female engineers from the President's Advisory Science Board, and Lieutenant Jerry Mitchell, a former pilot who used his senator uncle's influence to transition himself into submarine training. But these differences must be put aside when the "Memphis" makes a dangerous discovery.
