Navy Commander Pete Miranda is chosen to lead a top-secret military operation to sneak a U.S. submarine into the Black Sea. His mission: to sink a rogue Russian freighter carrying stolen nuclear fuel. The attack brings the world to the verge of nuclear holocaust. The Black Sea Affair is one of the most dangerous games of brinkmanship since the Cuban Missile Crisis.
As the U.S. Navy searches for weapons-grade plutonium that has been smuggled out of Russia by terrorists, a submarine mishap escalates the international crisis. JAG Officer Zack Brewer is called on to defend American submarine skipper Miranda and his crew at a military tribunal in Moscow. It is a heart-stopping race against the clock.
Don Brown is the author of Thunder in the Morning Calm, The Malacca Conspiracy, The Navy Justice Series and Black Sea Affair, a submarine thriller that predicted the 2008 shooting war between Russia and Georgia. Don served five years in the U.S. Navy as an officer in the Judge Advocate General's (JAG) Corps, which gave him an exceptional vantage point into both the Navy and the inner workings of 'inside-the-beltway' as an action officer assigned to the pentagon. He left active duty in 1992 to pursue private practice, but remained on inactive status through 1999, rising to the rank of Lieutenant Commander. He and his family live in North Carolina, where he pursues his passion for penning novels about the Navy.
In Black Sea Affair, Don Brown weaves an intense, action-packed tale that gives flesh to Matthew 24:7s prediction that in the latter times, Nation will rise against nation. A group of terrorists has just stolen enough weapons-grade plutonium to wipe out a fairly large chunk of land and end the lives of millions. The Russians are convinced that the plutonium is hidden somewhere in Chechnya, but U.S. intelligence believes that the plutonium is aboard a Russian freighter in the Black Sea.
When a misunderstanding resulting from a lie causes Russia to believe that American fighter planes have shot into Russian territory and taken down two of their MiGs, tensions rise between Russia and America. Tensions reach a whole new level when a U.S. sub, the USS Honolulu, sinks a seemingly civilian Russian freighter. The fact that there were children aboard the freighter doubles Russias fury, and it sends a large portion of its own submarines and armed helicopters to take out the USS Honolulu. A war breaks out undersea with the Russians unaware that the children whose lives they are seeking revenge for are aboard the USS Honolulu. Should the commander of the USS Honolulu, Pete Miranda, decide to surrender his ship for the sake of the children, he would be putting his crew and himself at the mercy of an unfair trial. When Miranda is offered the chance to have a lawyer from the U.S. represent his case, President Williams sends Americas very best. Can JAG officer Zack Brewer influence the release of the crew of the U.S. sub? Will America be able to find the true location of the plutonium before the entire crew of the USS Honolulu is sentenced to death?
Black Sea Affair is emotional and captivating. The fate of many lives rests in the decisions of a few men. With every character under pressure, one misstep could result in a nuclear war. Isaiah says that justice will bring light to the nations, and this novel shows that those willing to do right, to trust God, and to live honorably will face difficulties, but they will never have to be ashamed of their deeds or character. I would recommend Black Sea Affair to fans of suspense and action. -- Christa Mullen, www.ChristianBookPreviews.com
