100 fathoms below …
The depth at which sunlight no longer penetrates the ocean.
1983. The US nuclear submarine USS Roanoke embarks on a classified spy mission into Soviet waters. Their goal: to find evidence of a new, faster, and deadlier Soviet submarine that could tip the balance of the Cold War. But the Roanoke crew isn’t alone. Something is on board with them. Something cunning and malevolent.
Trapped in enemy territory and hunted by Soviet submarines, tensions escalate and crew members turn on each other. When the lights go out and horror fills the corridors, it will take everything the crew has to survive the menace coming from outside and inside the submarine.
In the dark.
Combining Tom Clancy’s eye for international intrigue with Stephen King’s sense of the macabre, 100 Fathoms Below takes readers into depths from which there is no escape.
“100 Fathoms Below is deliciously creepy and deeply unnerving. Kent and Kaufmann take a real bite out of the horror genre with this killer of a book!”—Jonathan Maberry, New York Times bestselling author
“[A] chilling, tension-driven thriller…Readers will not be able to turn away.”—Publishers Weekly
“Full of claustrophobic horror…and hardcore evil, 100 Fathoms Below creates a powerful sense of place and a tension that festers in your gut throughout.”—Christopher Golden, New York Times bestselling author of Ararat
“Between potential attacks from enemy boats and the paranormal danger lurking among the crew, readers will wonder which will destroy the USS Roanoke first.”—Booklist
At the height of the Cold War, the crew of the submarine USS Roanoke are about to play a dangerous game of cat and mouse with not only the Soviet navy, but also a sinister killer lurking aboard in Kent (The Clone Apocalypse) and Kaufman's (Die and Stay Dead) chilling, tension-driven thriller. Tim Spicer is a sonar tech aboard the Roanoke, and the captain has given him a special job: befriend and keep tabs on Jerry White, a sailor with a checkered past who has just transferred aboard. What neither man knows is that fellow crewmate Warren Stubic went for a prelaunch celebration in a dark corner of Waikiki, was turned into a vampire, and now, back aboard the submarine, is on the hunt for blood. As the sub dives deeper and into Soviet waters in pursuit of a new Soviet submarine, Stubic's legion grows. It will be up to Spicer and White to regain control and rescue the ship. The perfect blend of suspenseful political thriller and creepy horror is sure to please fans of both genres. Readers will not be able to turn away.
