A stunning tale of a submarine disaster. In 1948, Naval Intelligence discovered that the Soviets were building a large submarine fleet, all much faster and deadlier than the German U-boats. Britain's fleet of escort vessels would be outclassed. The government ordered two of our existing slow T class submarines to be adapted to go faster, and then tried out against our existing frigates. The anti-submarine trials were a disaster, not helped by the stormy relationship between two people each brilliant in their field: the young mathematician boffin, Dr Alison Maynard; and her boyfriend Tom Seago, maverick navigator of one of the sub-chasing frigates. For a gripping read, full of passion, danger, ingenuity and moments of cliffhanging fear, look no further.
