*Starred Review* Campbell utilizes his background as a retired navy commander and his familiarity with submarines to craft a terrific thriller debut. The USS Kentucky has departed on a three-month tour when the captain receives orders that shock both him and his crew. They are to head to an area near Iran, where they are commanded to unleash their nuclear weapons in retaliation for an attack on Washington, D.C. The ship goes silent, and it proceeds on the mission. What the crew doesn’t know is that the orders are false, designed to get the U.S. to make the first strike. The president and the navy continuously send rescind orders, but they don’t know that someone involved in the conspiracy is on board the sub and in charge of the radio. The countdown begins. Campbell does an amazing job, balancing character interaction with high-octane action, all the while keeping the technical jargon to a level understandable by nonmilitary readers. This is the best novel about a submarine since Tom Clancy’s classic The Hunt For Red October (1984). --Jeff Ayers
The best submarine novel since Tom Clancy's The Hunt for Red October. (Booklist (starred review))
The Trident Deception is a fistfight of a thriller that keeps you on the ropes from the opening bell and ends with an outta-left-field spin kick to the floating rib. It really should be stamped Top Secret because this is the kind of masterpiece that quickly moves other thrillers to the bargain table. (Dalton Fury, former Delta Force, and New York Times bestselling author of Kill Bin Laden and Tier One Wild)
It's hard to admit, for a marine sniper like myself, but the deadliest weapon on the battlefield is a nuclear submarine. No one puts the reader inside one like Rick Campbell does in The Trident Deception. I couldn't put it down. Compelling and thrilling, this novel is a must read. (Jack Coughlin, New York Times bestselling author of Shooter and Time to Kill)

This 31 year submarine veteran found the book to be a great read. It is technically correct (within the bounds of security and book length) yet understandable by the novice. Read morePublished 2 months ago by bill wellman
