Format: Paperback
The geopolitical insight of this book is tremendous and the submarine encounters are great but the whole book could have been done without involving Jerry Mitchell. Its almost as though the main characters plot progression was an afterthought on the great geopolitical research. The "Mac" character, while plausible, seems a bit tacked on too. Good book, worth the read but disappointed at the poor Jerry Mitchell plot progression. As I say this may have been better as a separate book.

Its OK. Almost believable and currently very relevant scenario of China making a bid for the entire South China Seas (re. current activity on Spratly Islands). Submarine events well informed and quite exciting. Political shenanigans in US and the alliance of countries opposing China rather less convincing - I certainly hope that government decisions aren't really made like this. Like I said - I hope! Yes, the submarine action bits are good and seem well informed. The plot-building background less good. Overall not actually boring but not a real blockbuster either. Not the sort of book you'd read twice. Once? Maybe.

By Charles Green TOP 500 REVIEWERVINE VOICE on 10 Sept. 2014
Format: Paperback
I have enjoyed the previous three Jerry Mitchell novels from Larry Bond, but have to consider Shattered Trident a misfire. Whilst all of Bond's books have relied heavily on their technical accuracy and the level of attention given to establishing a wider geopolitical setting that both detailed and plausible, Shattered Trident spends too long on the 'big picture' stuff and not enough on the smaller scale human drama. It can hardly be considered a successful Jerry Mitchell novel when Mitchell himself feels almost shoehorned into the plot.

The result is a book that is too dry and lacks a solid emotional hook to keep the reader interested. As a portrayal of how and armed conflict in the South China Sea might play out its frighteningly plausible, but as an exciting, edge of your seat thriller it leaves a great deal to be desired.

Hopefully next time Bond and his co-author Chris Carlson will reduce the scale and tighten the focus more.

Another outstanding adventure featuring Jerry Mitchell this time as the Commander of a nuclear submarine in the China sea. Less on submarine warfare and more on the political battles between China and her neighboring countries over the sovereignty of the Spratly Islands and its associated natural resources. A very topical story given recent US comments on the subject. Well recommended.

Have just finished the 4 Jerry Mitchell books and am concerned that I don't have a thing in the library to come close to the detail and story line to match. It will be a great wrench to not re-read these again after some of the detail has gone from my memory. Thanks Larry & Chris

SHATTERED TRIDENT Jerry Mitchell no. 4. (231215).
Early action begins to set the scene but the necessary political
setting to offer a background to this with the inevitable
catalogue of characters requires a bit of self discipline and
restraint having moved directly from the authors last work with
all the excitement that, that novel generated. However, once
again, whilst this story, like their previous works, obviously
can 'stand alone', for a fan, of which I unashamedly am, it
begins, even at this stage to link up the story lines of the last
novels, satisfyingly neatly (6%.) At 16% I like it more and more
especially the multi threads to the principle plot. As we moved
into this section I got more and more pleasure from the story
and the relationships within it. At 29% it could not get hotter!
But, at 39% it has! and on it goes, a gripping tale that is almost
impossible to put down at 46%. Action addicts! This is your
book! (51%)! I very much like and admire the way the authors
are never quite predictable and often add a very exciting twist
to their tale (72%). At this time I feel really sorry that this novel
is forecast as the last in the series.This also in the face of an
incredibly moving section of the book (82%). Moving on
(86%) it is clear that this story is not so far removed from
dreadful reality that it makes the head spin! I have finished
sadly, so has the series, come back to submarines authors!

Very short for what it is supposed to be and lacking in action, although the underwater hunts are really good. You should be aware it is not a World war, its an Asian/China/ Far East war.
