Somewhere under the freezing Atlantic, a Soviet sub commander has just made a fateful decision. The Red October is heading west. The Americans want her. The Russians want her back. The chase for the highly advanced nuclear submarine is on—and there’s only one man who can find her...

Brilliant CIA analyst Jack Ryan has little interest in fieldwork, but when covert photographs of Red October land on his desk, Ryan soon finds himself in the middle of a high-stakes game of hide-and-seek played by two world powers—a game that could end in all-out war. ( )

Tom Clancy is a fingernail biting storyteller with a bad habit. He loves his technology. Nevertheless, this book left me breathless. Sheer moxy sparking between political factions raises the hair on my arms as the plot comes to a close, shall we say, nearly missing disaster. ( )

Mr. Clancy struck gold with Hunt for Red October! Jack Ryan became a household name after this book hit the streets. The modern Cold War suspense drama is packed with action as the Top Secret Soviet submarine is being hunted by the Americans as well as the USSR's forces. The book is better than the movie and the movie is good! ( )
