It is the year 2007, and the Chinese are poised to challenge America's superiority on the open sea and upset the delicate balance of oil power in the Middle East and the free passage of the world's giant tankers.

The Chinese Navy, in partnership with Iran, has laid a minefield clean across the Strait of Hormuz, holding the world's oil supply hostage. Mystified by China's motive, yet drawn to action, the United States moves to disarm the mines with a huge display of force. At the center of the mission is USS Shark, a 30-year-old nuclear boat on her final tour of duty. When confronted with the unexpected death of brave SEALs, the unimaginable happens: the first mutiny in the modern history of the United States Navy.

    " "Navy SEALs blow up a Chinese refinery and naval base because they mined the Strait of Hormuz. Meanwhile China takes over Tawain because our Navy is out of place. Seems like we lose big time but no one in the book seems too upset. They don "

    " Some of the political aspects of these books tend to a bit over the top. But the descriptions of the action taken by the SEAL Teams are by far the best I've read, leaving the reader to feel the action themselves as of they had taken a bullet. "
