The Trident Deception Book Summary

"The best submarine novel since Tom Clancy's The Hunt for Red October." —Booklist (starred review)

The USS Kentucky—a Trident ballistic missile submarine carrying a full complement of 192 nuclear warheads—is about to go on a routine patrol. Not long after it reaches the open sea, however, the Kentucky receives a launch order. After receiving that launch order, it is cut off from all counter-orders and disappears into the Pacific while it makes the eight-day transit to the launch site. What the Kentucky's crew doesn't know is that those launch orders haven't actually come from the U.S. government.

Rogue elements within the Mossad have learned that Iran has developed its first nuclear weapon and, in ten days, will detonate it—and the target is Israel. The suspected weapon complex is too far underground for conventional weapons to harm it, and the only choice is a pre-emptive nuclear strike. With limited time, this rogue group initiates a long-planned operation called the Trident Deception. They'll transmit false orders and use a U.S. nuclear submarine to launch the attack.

In this thriller from Rick Campbell, with only 8 days before the Kentucky is in launch range and with the submarine cut off from any outside communication, one senior officer, the father of one of the officers aboard the submarine, must assemble and lead a team of attack submarines to find, intercept and neutralize the Kentucky before it can unknowingly unleash a devastating nuclear attack.

The Trident Deception - Rick Campbell Book Reviews

  • Highly Recommended (TootzLootzBrighton)

    At times a little top heavy with the military technospeak but overall a very well written book. It will draw you in...no doubt about it.
  • Trident Deception (Demirisfamily)

    Excellent read. Gripping and could not it the book down. Set up is well thought out. Highly recommend.
  • Well Done... Ensuring the impossible is possible and (INFJ-male)

    ... the possible impossible. Due to other obligations, my reading was reduced to one short chapter. Each chapter encouraged my return to the next, with the reward of heightened suspense. Although I thought I knew a little bit about current military equipment and tactics; this certainly increased my knowledge-- while the actual advancements, the i.e.state of technology could not be revealed, I developed a greater awareness and awe of what we don't know. Well written and would have enjoyed even more of the technology-- even if it has been replaced and declassified.. Thank you!
  • The trident deception (Tdc59-59)
