Review

5 star review by Brad Nelson -- "real page turner": While thestory line ... stretches reality, it's fun reading. One of my favoriteauthors, James Patterson, stretches reality as well. This is fiction,with a lot of real intelligence experience mixed in. As an X-Air CraftCarrier based veteran, I found the story fast moving and entertaining.

From the Author

Women in the Military (Including Serving on Subs):

The novel LT. COMMANDER MOLLIE SANDERS that I wrote with my husband features the first woman serving on a sub.

When Mitch and I originally wrote the story, women were not yet serving on subs in the U.S. Navy. So we came up with a story reason for LCDR Mollie Sanders to be the first woman. (Note that a lieutenant commander in the U.S. Navy is the same as a major in the U.S. Army.)

On May 29, 2012, the White House's Council on Women and Girls postedBrad Cooper's article "Women Chart a New Course Onboard U.S. Navy Submarines":
In 2009, U.S. Navy Secretary Ray Mabus announced thatfor the first time in Navy history, women would be assigned to serveaboard Navy submarines.

Yesterday, the first contingent of 24 women who completed the Navy's nuclear submarine program met with President Obama and First Lady Michelle Obama at the White House. They were joined by Defense Secretary Leon Panetta, Navy Secretary Ray Mabus and the Vice Chief of Naval Operations, Admiral Mark Ferguson.

Now I understand that not everyone knows that women are now servingon U.S. subs. So when LT. COMMANDER MOLLIE SANDERS was free for one day on Amazon thanks to the KDP Select program, I did not get overly upset when I got this message on Facebook from a man about the novel:
This really stretches reality. Women have made great advances in the military, but submarine duty isn't among them.

I sent back this Facebook message:
When Mitch and I wrote the story women weren't yet on U.S. subs and that is part of the point of the novel. BUT ... women are now on U.S. subs.

And the man actually thanked me for "correcting" him.

He did go on to wonder how billeting would be arranged on the sub, which Mitch and I deal with in our fiction story.

On the same day I read the Military Times news story "Female military members sue to serve in combat" by Paul Elias of the Associated Press

To summarize the article, women are suing because, without access tocertain combat positions, their chances for promotion are hindered.
[M]ore than 144 female troops have been killed and morethan 860 have been wounded in Iraq and Afghanistan since the wars began, according to Pentagon statistics. Roughly 20,000 of the 205,000 service members currently serving in Afghanistan are women.

The article goes on to say that the lawsuit "alleges that women arealready serving unofficially in combat units. Air National Guard Major Mary Jennings Hegar sustained shrapnel wounds in 2009 when she exchanged fire on the ground in Afghanistan after her Medevac helicopter was shot down." (She received a Purple Heart medal for her injuries.)

In conclusion, it is a brave new world for women serving in the U.S. military.
