Item description for The Silent Option by Jamie Fredric...
It's 1974 at the height of the Cold War when the whole world was on edge. American intelligence has intercepted numerous radio messages between the notoriously rival Chinese and Russian governments. U2 reconnaissance photos show that military equipment and heavily armed Chinese troops are being positioned along North Korea's border. Fearing its sovereign soil may be invaded, South Korea requests America to intercede. The U.S. responds by ordering the carrier USS John Preston and its battle group to the Sea of Japan. Within the carrier's battle group is the USS Bronson, the newest and most sophisticated destroyer in the world. On board the Bronson is a satellite-based weapons' system of unimaginable power. Just by her mere presence, the Bronson's mission is to deter war.
Navy Commander Grant Stevens, a trained Navy SEAL, combat veteran, and the best Black Ops operator the Naval Investigative Service currently has, voices his opinions to his superiors. He suspects the buildup of troops and equipment is nothing more than a ruse. His instincts are telling him the Communists are after the Bronson.
Grant soon finds himself up against a Communist mole, Russian commandos, and an old KGB nemesis. His mission is to prevent the conspiracy, a conspiracy that may penetrate the heart of the U.S. Navy itself.
