Kurzbeschreibung

"Here is a writer at the top of his game. The result is a brilliant techno-thriller, the kind a young Clancy would be proud to call his own." -- HOMER HICKAM, Bestselling author of 'Rocket Boys'

A minor accident at a German nuclear power plant, a Biological Warfare attack on the British Embassy in Washington, DC, and a secret arms deal combine to drive a trusted NATO Ally into an illegal alliance with a rogue Middle Eastern state. With the world hovering on the brink of war, a handful of U.S. Navy warships must track down and destroy a wolfpack of state-of-the-art submarines.

Their enemy is skilled in deception, and incredibly lethal. Out-gunned, out-maneuvered, and out-thought, the U.S. Navy crews must throw the rulebook out the window, and become every bit as devious and deadly as their enemy. If they fail, the consequences are unthinkable...

"A timeless warrior epic. Jeff Edwards spins a stunning and irresistibly-believable tale of savage modern naval combat." -- JOE BUFF, Bestselling author of 'Seas of Crisis,' and 'Crush Depth'

"...fast and lethal. I read it in one sitting." -- PAUL L. SANDBERG, Producer of 'The Bourne Supremacy,' and 'The Bourne Ultimatum'

"... as close as you can get to naval surface combat without being shot at. Jeff Edwards has penned a fast, no-holds-barred thriller that never lets up. Highly recommended." -- JACK DuBRUL, Bestselling author of 'The Silent Sea,' and 'Havoc'

(Originally published as 'Torpedo')

Synopsis

"Unfamiliar and exciting territory-a magnificent yarn!" Greg Bear, New York Times best-selling author of Darwin's Radio, Eon, and Blood Music An accident at a German nuclear plant and a biological warfare attack on the British Embassy in Washington, DC, have put the United States government on full alert. The attack, together with an illegal arms deal between a trusted NATO ally and a rogue Middle Eastern state, has ignited an international crisis that threatens to draw Western Europe, the Middle East, and America into all-out war. To defuse the escalating conflict, Commander Samuel (Jim) Bowie and the crew of USS Towers must join forces with a handful of U.S. Navy destroyers and frigates to hunt down and destroy a wolfpack of state-of-the-art submarines. Their enemy is a NATO ally trained in U.S. naval warfare tactics, skilled in deception, and thoroughly lethal. Out-gunned, out-maneuvered, and out-thought, the crews of the U.S. Navy ships must become as devious as their enemy. If they fail, the consequences are unthinkable. "TORPEDO kicks ass! Smart and involving, with an action through-line that shoots ahead like its namesake-fast and lethal. I read it in one sitting."-PAUL L.

SANDBERG, Producer of The Bourne Supremacy "A timeless warrior epic. Jeff Edwards spins a stunning and irresistibly believable tale of savage modern naval combat."-JOE BUFF, Best-selling Author of Seas of Crisis, Crush Depth, and Straits of Power "Edwards wields politics and naval combat tactics with a skill equal to the acknowledged masters of military fiction."-The Military Press

Gute Amerikaner und die bösen Deutschen. Grüne und eine neue Partei beschließen den Atom-Austritt. Da die Industrie und die Bevölkerung unter dem Energiemangel leiden werden wird ein Deal mit einem Terror Regime gemacht. High Tech Waffen gegen Öl. Und natürlich wird das UN Embargo gleich mit gebrochen. Sorry, die Geschichte war einfach nur schlecht.

HASH(0xa6139648) von 5 Sternen Outstanding...A Good Read 18. März 2007
Von Amazon Customer - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch
I met the author the day I bought the book, and we hit it off right away. As a retired Naval Officer and Anti-submarine specialist my entire career, I have to applaud Jeff for showing how much ASW is all about people thinking on their own, without the fancy computers. And he also captured the team work required to hunt, localize, and kill the most difficult of targets. The interaction between the officers and senior enlisted on board all of his Navy ships reflect reality...those who have mutual respect and listen to each other inevitably serve on very good ships. I especially enjoyed the way Jeff wrote the book, a sweries of relatively short chapters, each filled with just the right mix of drama and suspense. A hearty salute for this first work...and I am looking forward to his next effort.

HASH(0xa6197ca8) von 5 Sternen Finally, one for the enlisted people! 29. August 2005
Von William K Chadwick - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch Verifizierter Kauf
An exciting read and a lot of focus on the characters, especially the chiefs and petty officers who actually make the gear work. A realistic look at how officers and enlisted interact and what they do. I loved the entire story, although as a former aviation anti-sub warfare tech (AX2), I was a little upset to see every Lamps helo get blown out of the sky. I hope to see more from this author along these same lines.

HASH(0xa6198e7c) von 5 Sternen The absolute BEST military thriller in 10 YEARS... 13. April 2005
Von Jeff Edwards - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe
I MUST start this out by saying that I am NOT the same Jeff Edwards that wrote this book. I am NOT a writer, and other than my reviews, I haven't written anything anyone has ever read since college. With that said, let me start off by saying I was more than a bit skeptical as I was asked to give 'Torpedo' a go. (I must admit I had a good time fooling my wife into believing I had managed to write and publish a book without her knowing about it) I don't know WHY I was hesitant, because over the years I have come to discover that just because someone hasn't published a book DOESN'T mean they aren't better than 99% of the writers currently in print today. Publishing companies are notorious for NOT giving someone new their big break. They are afraid that since the author MAY not be familiar, the book simply cannot sell. How tragic.

One of my ALL-TIME favorite books has GOT to be 'Red Moon' by David S. Michaels. After reading this I had to wonder what simple-minded editor refused to give this guy a contract??? The same is true of 'Torpedo'. Written by someone who has actually BEEN there DONE that, the ring of authenticity rings true on each and every page. Not since Tom Clancy in his writing Hey Day (which was a while ago) has a Military Thriller been this true-to-life.

'Torpedo' really IS catchy with a story that just cannot miss. Everything that makes a good book compelling to read is found here. Nations breaking International Law. Biological attacks on the British Embassy IN the United States. Submarines being smuggled right under the noses of British ships. Ships being sunk for all the wrong reasons. And best of all: An intelligent plot that moves with all the speed of a Tomahawk Missle. I stopped counting all the times I kept asking myself, this didn't REALLY happen, did it? The realism is unprecedented and highly tension-filled -- but in a GOOD way.

I have a simple barometer for determining whether or not a book is really good. If it is the first thing I think about when I get up, and the last thing on my mind when I go to bed, the book is GOOD. 'Torpedo' IS GOOD. It met my qualifications and passed with flying colors. Exciting and highly realistic, this book needs more attention and at the very least, an editor who knows that a book like this DESERVES a chance to be read by the widest audience possible that can truly appreciate good, honest, fun thrillers. Give 'Torpedo' a shot and especially if you have missed the Tom Clancy of old, this will remind you of why you read Military Thrillers in the first place. Absolutely fantastic work...and easily the best first novel since Clancy's 'Hunt For Red October'.

HASH(0xa61986c0) von 5 Sternen view from below 20. März 2006
Von J. McGuire - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch
I have read all of Clancy, Buff, Robinson and DeMercurio. Each has his own background and style. Buff and DeMercurio, like Jeff Edwards, are ex US Navy and they served in Submarines. As an ex enlisted Submariner I particularly appreciated Mr. Edwards including and acknowledging the existence of and contributions of the crew and not just the Officers. His exposure of the sometimes "dogmatic" approach to dealing with combat situations is far to real and troubling. His understanding of the "real politic" of governments and their leaders is spot on and a bit scary. While I might quibble with the claim that in a one on one situation the surface vessel has a two out of five chance of winning the battle, he takes great care to help the reader understand the reality of antisubmarine warfare from the surface combatent's point of view. This book is really worth reading.

HASH(0xa61a73f0) von 5 Sternen Completely Familiar with this 25. September 2005
Von L. D. Atchison - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe
Jeff and I were stationed together on the real USS Towers, and she was a great Ship. I found his book, even though fiction, to be so real, as I recognized the systems he spoke of, and the action that happens so real. True professionalism shows through in this writing, in his job while in the Navy, as he knew exactly what he was trying to get across the his readers. A real masterpiece, and I hope someday, a movie is made of this masterpiece.
