Very suspenseful. Arctic ice pack. (Somehow my tag got entered as a review.)

Edward Beach is one of the outstanding writers of submarine naval fiction. This book brings back the characters first met in Run Silent, Run Deep. It is many years later. The war is over, the Cold War has begun. Our heroes are older, and wiser, and now in command of nuclear subs. Under the Arctic ice pack they encounter an enemy determined to stop them from relaying information about a secret installation. It's a page-turner, getting more and more suspenseful as the climactic ending nears.. ( )

There are some who go down to the sea in ships, and some who go under the sea. The causes of catastrophe can be subtle as well as manifold, but fortunately only a few fail to come back to port. To them and to their valiant memory, this story is dedicated.
