Navy pilot turned submarine officer Jerry Mitchell is now the navigator aboard USS Seawolf. On a reconnaissance mission deep in the Barents Sea, Mitchell and his crew prepare to watch the Russian navy as it trains for battle. Although they are outside Russia’s territorial waters, the U.S. boat is ambushed by Russia’s newest attack submarine, Severodvinsk. Its aggressive new captain, Aleksey Petrov, harasses the American intruder with dangerously fast, insanely close passes. The subs collide, and the Russian ship sinks to the bottom, crippled. Only Seawolf knows where Severodvinsk is, but the Russian authorities are too angry to listen to the Americans, even in matters of life and death. Mitchell and his shipmates must keep their own damaged vessel afloat, figure out a way to make the Russians listen, and keep the trapped submariners alive until they can be saved – if that is even possible. Larry Bond uses his experience as an intelligence officer, warfare analyst, and antisubmarine technology specialist to give readers an expertly crafted techno-thriller. Like Run Silent, Run Deep and The Hunt for Red October, Cold Choices takes readers deep into the minds of submariners and the treacherous world in which they dwell. Download and start listening now!

    " While this follow up to "Dangerous Ground" (10 stars) contains lots of excitement, it is simply too long. The lack of editing slows, clogs, diminishes and nearly sinks the plot. The loosely termed "editor," should be informed that its OK to trim and cut to sharpen a novel. 7 of 10 stars "

    " First book I read from Mr. Bond, couldn't put it down. I found the book to take the reader deep inside the ocean and hope for the best. "

    " I thought it was pretty good. Moved well. A few times I wished I knew what had gone on in prior book or books but not a big deal. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Kelly | 3/9/2013

    " Overall a good read but draggs a bit in the middle. A good editor could have cut 50 pages from this book and kept the story intact. "

    " Good story with well thought out plot, but it is a very long novel. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Ann | 3/8/2012

    " I gave this a 4 because I might actually read it again. It was really fast paced suspense with no stalkers or serial killers. Reminiscent of THE HUNT FOR RED OCTOBER but a different time - today in fact. "

    " Great story about the world of the silent service. Although not actually true, technically it is all plausible and doable. The story is a little predictable but very well written and very entertaining. Highly recommended to anyone who wants a glimpse into the live of a submariner. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Rick | 1/6/2011

    " If you like submarine tales, it's a little slow to start, and a little too political at times, but still a good read. "
