The only way to survive is to change the rules.

An accident at a German nuclear plant, a biological warfare attack on the British Embassy in Washington, DC, and a secret arms deal combine to ignite an international crisis that threatens to draw Western Europe, the Middle East, and the United States into all-out war.

To prevent it, a handful of US Navy destroyers and frigates must track down and destroy a wolfpack of state-of-the-art submarines. The enemy is a NATO ally, trained in US naval warfare tactics, skilled in deception, and incredibly lethal. Out-gunned, out-maneuvered, and out-thought, the crews of the US Navy ships must become every bit as devious and deadly as their enemies. If they fail, the consequences are unthinkable.

Quotes & Awards

  • “Holds one’s attention from first word to last. The characters are rich and complex. The plot is not only full of surprises but also is delivered with an unerring eye for detail. The dialog crackles, and the prose is often lyrical.”

    Gale Lynds, bestselling author of The Last Spymaster

  • “What do you get when you mix a classic sea chase, a hair-trigger political situation, and cutting-edge military technology? Torpedo—a fast moving plot, electric prose, and a double-helping of adrenaline by retired Navy Chief Jeff Edwards…Edwards wields politics and naval combat tactics with a skill equal to the acknowledged masters of military fiction.”

    Military Press

  • “Fast moving and technically accurate in the best Clancy tradition. Edwards spotlights some interesting scenarios that should be food for thought to the world’s leaders and wraps them in a style that makes this book almost impossible to put down.”

    Terry M. Badger, Captain USNR (Ret.)

  • “As the former commanding officer of a US Navy warship, I was awestruck by the realism and plausibility of this novel. This is one scenario we’ve got to consider in the Global War on Terrorism.”

    David Armstrong, Commander, USN (Ret.)
