These lands summon up the true meaning of the word nowhere. Flat, sprawling Greeley County contains only two small towns in its entire 620 square miles. Both of them are set along the little local. highway, Route 156, which starts 180 miles to the east near the great bend of the Arkansas River. These are the remotest American lands, with populations of about one hundredth the average for rural . Miles and miles and miles of wheat and grassland, flat, windswept, and, in an uncluttered way, made. Glorious by the sheer absence of spectacle.

Being a former Navy Submariner, I can attest that this "limey" (Royal Navy guy) got it right. An acquaintance who had red Patrick Robinson's books, recommended them. Nimitz is book 1 and I'm now on book 2; binge reader I guess. Anyhow, he writes with the in depth techie stuff like Clancy did. Robinson's character development is excellent with some of the key roles carrying forward to subsequent books. The story line is full of unexpected surprises, which kept me reading long into the nights. If you loved, and are missing Clancy's original works, check out Patrick Robinson. I don't think you will be disappointed. Start with this one, done in 1997 and envisions taking place in a 2002 that didn't have 9/11 as the disaster of the century. Enjoy!

This story about a battleship which suddenly vanished by nuclear fission, leaving behind the other ships in its group, is rather scarey and at the same time very convoluted and sudden. The US Navy attempts to solve the mystery, bringing the cause down to one man and the problem of what to do with this killer when he is finally caught because he is a very intelligent fellow, and heretofore involved with the Navy in a positive way. Admiral Morgan is the main character in the book along with the President and the Chairman of the Joint Chiefs, as they pursue this murderer through the oceans.
It is a gripping book and at times funny because Admiral Morgan is a definitely unique and powerful force both in his ordinary life and as the main man to find the murderer. As a Democrat I do not agree with the Administration's point of view, but that is par for course, and makes the book a bit more spicey. I have read it three times.

RED
A reader of Nimitz Class may sometimes find it difficult to keep in mind that the book is fiction, because the military and political details seem so realistic. The US military officers are strong and exciting characters. The author has made good use of excellent military advice, particularly about the ways of the British Navy. There's a low-level background of preaching about keeping a strong military. Some parts of the story do strain credibility. For example, principal characters move in international venues, easily using English everywhere. But this is a minor objection, easily suspended. The book is a great technical thriller, with lots of mysteries and surprises. I especially enjoyed the details of running through the Bosphorus underwater.

One of the best reads ever. Within a few pages the read is sucked in to a realistic scenario in which he cannot put down. Found myself seeking what is going to happen next.

I read this with great interest as an ex-submarine sailor. I have long wondered why the Navy has not built diesel electric subs for their quiet and stealth in shallower waters. This is where our special forces may need to operate in this day and age.

Nimitz Class is a great Naval story along the lines of O'Brien's Jack Aubrey tales. The difference is a Tom Clancy-like focus on new technologies. This "former naval person" enjoyed reading about my fellow sailors sticking it to the bad guys, and there are a lot of them out in the world. Good yarn.

While I enjoyed the story, the author gets really long-winded at times, and sometimes talks for pages and pages about things that really have nothing to do with the story.

I enjoyed this storyline enough that I have started "Kilo Class", the second story in the series. I'm only 50 pages in, and it's great so far. There hasn't been the same droning on and on about things that don't concern the story(yet).

This book is worth reading, but just skip ahead 10 pages when the author starts to wander.

Good suspense tale, well written, and real enough in the basic premise to scare you into a few sleepless nights.
