It's as big as the Empire State Building, a massive floating fortress at the throbbing heart of a US Navy Carrier Battle Group. It's a Nimitz-class nuclear carrier, the most powerful weapons system on the planet. Nothing can touch it.

So when the first stunned messages say only that the Thomas Jefferson has disappeared, the Navy reacts with disbelief. But the truth becomes inescapable: a Nimitz-class carrier has been claimed by nuclear catastrophe—no other explanation is possible.

But as Navy maverick Bill Baldridge begins to investigate the disaster that claimed his idolized brother’s life, another chilling alternative begins to emerge: a rogue submarine. Suddenly it's up to Bill Baldridge to track down this shadowy nuclear terrorist, who still has another nuclear-tipped torpedo in his arsenal.

Quotes & Awards

  • “Action follows with menace piled on mystery on top of intrigue. Nimitz Class is a stunner that irresistibly hurtles the reader…from the first page to the exciting climax on the last.”

    Clive Cussler #1 New York Times bestselling author

  • The rich detail here is impeccable, every bit the equal of Clancy's…Readers will be engaged…by [t]his cautionary tale.”

    Publishers Weekly

  • “A perfect nautical thriller: suspenseful, exciting, technically accurate, and plausible enough to be unnerving. For sailors and non-sailors alike it is the can't-put-down geomilitary yarn for this summer's reading.”

    Dallas Morning News

  • “The best military thriller since The Hunt for Red October…Robinson has crafted a fast-paced, chilling, yet believable tale, peppered with unforgettable characters.”

    San Francisco Examiner

  • “Clever…Rivals The Hunt For Red October in thrills.”

    Sunday Denver Post

  • Nimitz Class is that rare combination of military thriller and tactical treatise. While capturing the excitement of naval operations, it also raises critical issues about the future of naval forces, terrorism, and the implications of the spread of weapons of mass destruction. I strongly suggest that all military professionals read this book, not only for the issues it confronts, but for the sheer enjoyment of a great book.”

    William J. Crowe, Jr., former chairman of the Joint Cheifs of Staff

Listener Opinions

    " would probably only be interesting to naval fiction fans "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 by David C | 2/15/2014

    " Good Author - Easy reading "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 by Jerry | 1/30/2014

    " An interesting and technically accurate read that, while it held my attention, came across as rather flat and one-dimensional. Not the edge of my seat, nail biting, cat-mouse suspenseful Naval drama I was hoping for. This was not the US Navy in action. Instead we have a LCDR, and a couple US and British Admirals who are able to figure everything out effortlessly and come up with everything with a brief time out for the Seals to retaliate against the wrong country. Not much drama here. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 by Laura Ratcliffe | 1/30/2014

    " A little bit long, and heavy on naval details, but still a good thriller. "
