Would I read more by this author? Yes
First off I  want to say a  huge  thank you to the publisher  Permuted Press, the author W. Craig Reed, as well as Random Tour Things for inviting me to join the blog tour for this book as well as letting me read and review it.Non stop action from the very start, and didn't let up until the very end . Which means I was 100% hooked and didn't want to stop reading . A great start to a new series and I'm so glade that I said  yes because this is something I would pick up in a heart beat. The characters are real and come to life with each turn of the page.

Deep beneath the Arctic Ocean, a covert team of Chinese operatives uses stolen U.S. technology to capture Russia’s newest attack submarine. Loaded with 100-megaton nuclear torpedoes, the sub is headed west. The Americans want to sink her, the Russians want her back, and the Chinese claim they’re not responsible.
NCIS agent Jon Shay is a former SEAL Team Two operator. Still shattered by the murder of his wife a year earlier, he places the barrel of a revolver against his temple, spins the cylinder, and squeezes the trigger. He hears only a click—and the chime of his phone. Activated for a mission in the Arctic, Jon pairs with British scientist Kate Barrett to battle a ticking clock, trained operatives, and top government officials. Together, they must find and stop the world’s most lethal submarine. The stakes  are raised when they learn that the Russian sub is controlled by an infected AI system bent on completing its mission to create a nuclear winter.
