9780099474340: Hunter Killer

Saudi Arabia, the world's leading oil nation, is on the brink of revolution. While the Royal Family is ransacking the dwindling coffers, the country seethes with unrest. Vowing to end the destructive rule, Crown Prince Mohammed sets in motion a top-secret operation to destroy the Saudi oil industry. In search of an ally, a nation with a naval power willing to help in return for a share of the oil wealth, he turns to France. Her lethal Hunter Killer submarines can inflict devastating damage to the country's massive oil installations and help shift the power structure of the world's oil giant. On the other side of the globe, as the ferocious battle for the desert kingdom begins and the world's oil markets plunge into chaos, Admiral Morgan, former Security Advisor to the President, and Lt. Commander Ramshawe are summoned to the White House. Here, they discover the masterminds behind the evil plot: a mysterious French Colonel they call 'The Hunter,' and none other than Morgan's arch enemy, HAMAS General Ravi Rashood ...

About the Author:

PATRICK ROBINSON is the author of seven previous international bestselling thrillers: Nimitz Class, Kilo Class, H. M. S. Unseen, Seawolf, The Shark Mutiny, Barracuda 945 and Scimitar SL-2. He is also the author of several non-fiction bestsellers including True Blue (with Dan Topolski) and Born to Win. He is the co-author with Admiral Sir Sandy Woodward of One Hundred Days.

From Publishers Weekly:

Talk about "ripped from the headlines": bestseller Robinson's latest international political thriller (after 2004's Scimitar SL-2) reads like the evening news on speed. In 2009, Saudi Arabia's Prince Nasir plans to overthrow his country's royal family—a popular target, especially since Farenheit 9/11—with the French government's help. In order to make the coup d'état appear an exclusively Arab job, the French hire a Moroccan, Col. Jacques Gamoudi (aka Le Chasseur or the Hunter), to lead the operation. Joining Gamoudi is a notorious Hamas terrorist (the killer of the title). Foreseeing all that Saudi oil flowing away from American gas stations, U.S. Adm. Arnold Morgan has to find a way to stop the coup without making the French hate us more than they already do. If the surfeit of military detail tends to slow the action, the main characters come across as real people caught up in a frightening scenario—one that's perhaps a bit too close to reality to make this novel completely comfortable as escapist fiction.
