FINAL RUN
FINAL RUN

The Cold War is fought on every front. Under the seas, America has the only nuclear submarine and the Soviet Union is hurrying to deploy their first nuke. Old diesel-engine subs are dying out and the USS Squallfish it old school-as is her Captain.

Chad Shipley earned his stripes under the Pacific-as Japanese depth charges exploded around him. Now, he takes the Squallfish on a dangerous mission that may mean the end of him and his submarine as he is ordered to infiltrate the heart of the Soviet Northern Fleet to spy on the enemy’s nuclear sub capabilities.

But, the first Soviet nuclear sub is already underway, and has found its prey - the Squallfish. Against an opponent as clever and cunning as himself, Shipley and the crews of the Squallfish must rise to the battle to survive-or sink into the crushing depths.

SUICIDE MISSION

"As the car continued to accelerate away, the Italian sentry guessed immediately what was happening. Adrenaline and terror rushed through his body. He pulled his pistol and began firing at the speeding automobile. Two bullets shattered the rear window, one of which hit the driver at the base of the nect, shattering his spine and sending the terrorist into Allah's arms at the same moment the car hit the edge of the pier.

The car hit the port stern line, flipping the car upside down just as it slammed into the USS LA SALLE. The impact crushed the front of the car as one thousand pounds of semtex plastic explosive packed into the back seat, the trunk, and the panels of the car exploded.

Within minutes, the warship and the sailors who manned her were sitting on the bottom of the harbor....."]

ANNIHILATION

"Holman jumped as the first torpedo exploded against the distant Rodgers. The nose of the destroyer disappeared in a cloud of smoke and debris, followed by three more explosions one after the another along the length of the ship.

The concussion knocked Holman and his XO off their feet as a huge pall of smoke boiled upon itself where the Rodgers had been. Already stretching hundreds of feet in the air, a burst of flame broke through the black cloud.

Holman stared at the conflagration, still not believing his eyes as pieces of the ship and debris rained down on the ocean surface and the Stennis flight deck. Where USS John Rodgers had been, it was as if nothing had existed. No ship, just a vast expanse of ocean littered with debris where less than a minute ago over three hundred officers and sailors had manned a five-hundred-sixthy-three-foot warship. Sucked into the storm of war, vanquished without honor, but gone, as if they never existed, to become a footnote in naval history."

A WAKE-UP CALL FROM THE TAUREG NOMADS...

"The edge of the desert sun burst over the top of the cliff, blinding Stapler briefly as he cupped his hand over his eyes. He shut them for a moment as they grew accustomed to the morning rays. When he opened them a few seconds later, it seemed to Stapler that the rocks surrounding the encampment were moving.

"Here they come!" shouted Corporal Heights from the other side. The rocks weren't rocks. Tauregs had curled up on their sides and draped their abas over their bodies so that in the shadows of the night they blended into the rocky terrain of the Wadi.

"Hold your fire!" Stapler shouted. "Make each shot count." The Taureg charge was several hundred yards away and uncoordinated. Now that the battle had begun, the anxiety eased. The years of exercises, training, and combat experience burst forth within him.

"Get down, Gunny!" the LT shouted from the Humvee.

Stapler raised his M-16...flipped the safety off and fired as several Tauregs reached the perimeter. The Marines and the riggers, who waited for the Gunny's command, opened fire together, sending a wave of bullets out to greet the Taureg horde.

FIGHTING BLIND...

"Duncan looked around the crashed chopper, saw a couple of water bottles and tossed them out. They would need them if they were going to hike ten miles while evading these fanatics. The sound of incoming fire came from the outside, and he leaped out of the helicopter. Black smoke from the damaged engines rose into the sky. Might as well light up flares, he thought as he limbered his carbine and dove for cover.

He landed beside Beau, pointing his carbine over a lip of sand. Across a paved road less than five hundred feet away, a line of at least a hundred Algerian rebels charged their position. A gust of wind blew sand into his face. If he survived this, he was never, ever going to another beach for the rest of his life. He blinked the sand away from his eyes, took aim, and pulled the trigger..."
