‘Packed with more nerve-shattering tension than anything in print today… gripping, audacious, brilliant storytelling at its very best.’
‘Chilling authenticity… has the fascination of being on a high-speed train which is about to crash. The description of a submarine patrol racing for the safety of the icepack is as vivid as I ever hope to read.’
