Silent and lethal, USS Seawolf, the US Navy's most up-to-date stealth submarine, is on an ultra secret mission -- to spy on China's brandnew, hugely-improved Xia-Class submarine. When it ventures dangerously into the forbidden waters of the China Sea, Seawolf is caught in a shocking accident and is captured by the Chinese. The repercussions of the disaster could cause the biggest confrontation between Washington and Beijing in more than forty years. Knowing they are on the brink of a third world war, Admiral Arnold Morgan orders SPECWARCOM to send in the Navy SEALS to rescue the captive seamen at all costs. It becomes a desperate race against the clock as the wounded American Eagle struggles against the stirring Chinese dragon ...
