Description: Product Description
The Special 15th Anniversary Edition of the New York Times bestseller that propelled Tom Clancy to the top--available for the first time in trade!

Here is the runaway bestseller that launched Tom Clancy's phenomenal career. A military thriller so gripping in its action and so convincing in its accuracy that the author was rumored to have been debriefed by the White House. Its theme: the greatest espionage coup in history. Its story: the chase for a top secret Russian missile sub. Lauded by the Washington Post as "breathlessly exciting," The Hunt for Red October remains a masterpiece of military fiction by one of the world's most popular authors, a man whose shockingly realistic scenarios continue to hold us in thrall.

Somewhere under the Atlantic, a Soviet sub commander has just made a fateful decision. The Red October is heading west. The Americans want her. The Russians want her back. And the most incredible chase in history is on...

"A brilliant describer of events." --Washington Post

"No one can equal his talent for making military electronics and engineering intelligible and exciting....He remains the best!" --Houston Chronicle

"Flawless...frighteningly genuine." --The Wall Street Journal

"Remarkable...intricate and nerve tingling." --Clive Cussler

"Gripping narrative...Navy buffs and thriller adepts have been mesmerized." --Time
