Fellow submariner Rick Campbell has cranked out another novel even better than his first: Trident Deception. It is one of the most exciting books I have read and one that was hard to put down. China and the US go at it over Taiwan and the action never stops. All the war toys come into play except an atomic bomb. Submarines, aircraft carriers, planes, missiles and electronic warfare go all out. Navy Seals get into the action and the heroine gets shot so many times I lost count.

The book makes one wonder just how vulnerable out big aircraft carriers are. Personally I tend to think of them as in a similar situation to the pre WW2 battleships at Pearl Harbor. Some may consider the premise is a stretch others will see it as a realistic possibility. Either way "Empire Rising" is a fun five star read.
