Synopsis

On a calm night off the Florida coast, a fishing boat vanishes without a trace. Something deadly is hiding in U.S. waters, and the Navy brass would rather bury the truth than face it.

It's Montgomery's war now. Brash and unconventional, Mike Montgomery is hardly regulation Navy. At his side, Diane Martinson, the Chief of Staff's wife--smart, tough...and his lover. Under his command, the USS Goldsborough--a WWII-era destroyer thundering toward a showdown of water and fire.

With the arrival of P.T. Deutermann--retired Navy captain, former arms control negotiator within the Joint Chiefs of Staff, and ex-commander of at destroyer squadron--today's naval thriller just climbed to a whole new level.
