Publisher Description

The Iceman is an action-packed World War II military thriller featuring a daring submarine commander during the Pacific War.

In 1942, off the port city of St. Nazaire in occupied France, a US Navy S-class submarine assigned to the Royal Navy lurks just outside the borders of the minefield protecting a German U-boat base. Lieutenant Commander Malachi Stormes, the boat’s skipper, patrols dangerously close to the minefield entrance and manages to trap and sink three outbound U-boats in one spectacular attack. Britain decorates him; the US Navy promotes him and then gives him command of a brand-new class of submarine, a fleet boat based in Perth, Australia, called Firefish. Having been driven out of the Philippines by the Japanese juggernaut, the Perth boats are the only American forces capable of hitting the Japanese in the western Pacific.

With his cold, steely eyed focus on killing Japanese ships, Stormes is an enigma to his officers and crew—especially when it becomes clear that he is willing to take huge chances to achieve results. Firefish sinks more ships than any Perth boat on her first war patrol, but Stormes’ unconventional tactics literally frighten his crew. Driven by a past steeped in the whiskey-haunted violence of the Kentucky coal fields, whose psychological scars torment his sleep and close him off from those around him, Stormes is nicknamed the Iceman. His crew is proud of their boat’s accomplishments but wonder if their iron-willed skipper will bring them home alive.

With intense action and featuring authentic submarine tactics from the early years of the Pacific War, The Iceman continues P. T. Deutermann’s masterful, award-winning cycle of thrillers set during World War II.
