A deadly serious game of hide-and-seek is on. The CIA's brilliant young analyst, Jack Ryan, thinks he knows the reason for the sudden Red Fleet operation: the Soviets' most valuable ship, the Red October, is attempting to defect to the United States. If the U.S. fleet can locate her first and get her safely to port, it will be the intelligence coup of all time. The nerve-wracking hunt goes on for eighteen days as the Red October tries to elude her hunters across 4000 miles of ocean.

I'm one of the few that haven't seen the apparently popular movie version, thinking a movie about slow speed submarine chases would be pretty tedious. But I finally decided to give the audio book a try. No surprises here. The whole plot line was, as I had feared, a tad tedious. On the plus side, the audio reader did a good job, speaking the text clearly and faithfully rendering the author's intended tone. And a reader who's interested in military hardware and cold war strategy, they'd probably find the details conveyed interesting. As for me, this book remains about slow speed submarine chases, and is not particularly compelling. I would have liked it better probably had the book undergone some judicious editing, & condensed to about half the length.
