Thunder Under the Sea
by Art Peters
First, there was Voyage to the Bottom of the Sea, then The Hunt for Red October, now comes Undersea Thunder.
Take your sea sick pills; this is going to be a wild ride. Go aboard a Russian submarine of the future. Feel the sub rocked by the heavy waves as she encounters an off shore oil rig and must rescue the crew in an arctic storm.
Feel the pressure build as she slides into the depths after she is heavily damaged and now rests on the bottom, with tempers and oxygen growing short. Can they make their way to the surface?
Did the captain disregard orders, or was he just a pawn in power struggle for something else?
Feel the concussion of depth charges as the captain plays a deadly game of cat and mouse game with an adversary twice his size.
Feel the thunder in Undersea Thunder.
