Product Description

"Jeff Edwards takes his readers to the brink of Armageddon and beyond!" -- JOE BUFF, Bestselling author of 'Seas of Crisis,' and 'Crush Depth'

The world has forgotten the true nature of terror. It's about to be reminded.

A military revolt in southeastern Russia puts a former hard-line Soviet leader in command of a ballistic missile submarine and its arsenal of nuclear weapons. His goal: re-ignite the communist revolution, and recapture the might and glory of the fallen Soviet Union. Without warning, Russia, Japan, and the United States become hostages in a scheme of international nuclear blackmail. When the warheads start falling and people begin dying, no one can pretend that it's a bluff.

As the earth rushes toward extinction, a lone U.S. Navy warship must penetrate the Siberian ice pack to destroy the submarine before it can destroy the world.

It may already be too late.

"A truly spellbinding tale of intrigue... brilliantly executed." -- CLIVE CUSSLER, International bestselling author of 'The Spy,' and 'Raise the Titanic'

"A page turning, sip-from-a-fire-hose thriller in the world of underwater ballistic missiles and rogue former Soviet states." -- JAMES W. HUSTON, New York Times bestselling author of 'Falcon Seven,' and 'Secret Justice'

3.0 out of 5 stars A Believable & Realistic Story! June 20 2015
By Frances
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
3.5* A believable and realistic story of powerful nuclear missiles aimed at the shores of the United States, and other countries. The author, a retired U.S. Navy Chief Petty Officer and Anti-Submarine Warfare Specialist, presents numerous facts on how weapons of mass destruction originated, and how they eventually became more deadly in the twenty-first century. Jeff Edwards leaves no doubts as to the utter chaos and devastation that will take place once they hit their targets. Definitely edge of the seat moments as the men in power and the U.S. Navy try to locate the missiles before they are unleashed upon the unsuspecting world.

5.0 out of 5 stars Another chilling techno-thriller from an author who--quite frankly--cannot write fast ENOUGH... March 7 2011
By Jeff Edwards - Published on
When I finished Mr. Edwards first book ('Torpedo') I felt that I had read literally the BEST, most realistic techno-thriller of the previous decade. I've read quite a few books since then, and I maintain that my initial opinion was right on. Nobody can really write with the sense of immediacy and urgency like someone who has literally 'been there, done that'. 'Torpedo' was and still is one of my all-time favorite military thrillers. In a word: the book is simply Brilliant.

I have waited--sometimes patiently--most often impatiently--for Mr. Edwards follow-up. I KNEW immediately that the book had a LOT to live up to...and sometimes that either can work for you or against. In this case, I was worried that with his first novel being SO good, trying to live up to or making the attempt to out DO it seemed difficult at least it seemed so to me. I am thrilled to say that 'The Seventh Angel' lived up to ALL of my expectations and exceeded them from beginning to end.

The prologue itself was a nail-biter--what a great way to start this story off...and it only got better. Some of the subject matter in the book isn't easy to deal with. Face it: its easier knowing that despite the threat of hostility during the Cold War, the Soviet Union had MUCH better control over its own stockpile of nuclear weapons and weapons-grade material than it has since its collapse in the early 90's. The Cold, hard truth of the matter is chilling to say the least: There is SO MUCH of this material and weapons either not being properly cared for and watched over or even accounted FOR that it ought to give us ALL nightmares for years to come. WHO is keeping track of it all--and--keep in mind, there is a LOT to keep track of. What could possibly go wrong? Well, I think we all KNOW what potentially could go wrong...however most of us refuse to allow our imaginations to travel down such a frightening road. Fortunately for us though, Mr. Edwards has put it to serious thought. I certainly hope that our military leaders and Government have, too.

Honestly, this topic desperately NEEDS to be addressed, and the sooner the better. It probably is--I take comfort in the knowledge that our Military rarely fills us in on their plans before carrying out anything so dangerous. However, within the pages of 'The Seventh Angel' you will find an all-too plausible scenario which quite frankly scares the absolute crap outta me. It is written with skill, and as the tension is carefully wratched up, moment by moment, you can tell the attention to detail is something that, while necessary to the story, never gets in the way of the story being seriously compelling at the same time. 'The Seventh Angel' is everything 'Torpedo' was and more...and I mean that in the best way possible. Once again, I will have what will seem like an eternity to wait for yet another follow-up, but I take comfort in that at least I'll know the wait will have been entirely worth it in the end. Kudos once again to Mr. Edwards. Yet ANOTHER Brilliant thriller written incredibly well--and much, MUCH better than Clancy has produced in a long, LONG time.

FYI--while sharing the same name, I am NOT the same Jeff Edwards who wrote this book...although I certainly WISH I were good enough to have done so.

3.0 out of 5 stars An enjoyable guilty pleasure Oct. 31 2011
By Nate74 - Published on
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
First, I enjoyed this book. A lot. I also enjoyed the first one, Sea of Shadows though one needn't have read the first book; they are pretty standalone. The author has a clean and direct style that makes it an easy read. I had a very high pages/minute rate which allowed me to really stay wrapped up in the story. The pacing is also fast as each scene/chapter is rarely more than a handful of pages. Now, these would not necessarily be good things, but for this book and its subject matter and being a military-techno-thriller, it is perfect.

In the interest of full disclosure, I, like the author, am a former technician in the US Navy. I explained to a friend that this book really scratched itches I didn't know I had and was every bit the guilty pleasure that a bodice-ripper can be to others.

The action is intense, the characters are well-drawn and the stakes are high but not implausibly so. That last part can get a little sketchy. The only real complaint I could offer is that some of the situations are quite contrived. I will explain briefly in the least spoilery way I can: In this book, as in the first one mentioned earlier, situations conspire to make one Captain and his amazing Destroyer to save the day. Great storytelling no doubt, and I loved every minute of it. However, where I found a part of my brain nagging me was just at how unlikely and forced it was. The author clearly loves and knows US destroyers but I believe the capabilities of our hero's ship is greatly exaggerated and that the story would have been better served--and more believable/realistic--had a submarine been used instead. It is clear the author knew that as well as he created a way to prevent any submarine from being sent in, leaving it to our hero-captain and his stealthy destroyer to come to the rescue.

I read this on my Kindle and had no issues with formatting, etc.

I will be purchasing the author's next work when available.

4.0 out of 5 stars Jeff's Done It - AGAIN! March 7 2011
By Michael D. Fisher - Published on
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I just finished reading the book and I have to say it is GOOD.

As a dyed-in-the-wool Milporn Geek, this book fell right in line with my expectations. I was drawn through the book as opposed to being pushed.. my way of putting the fact I didn't want to put it down. Work and life in general saw that I had to, occasionally, but I'd fight my way back to it - ASAP.

Mr. Edwards did a great job of drawing the scenes in my minds-eye and it was all very vivid and UNDERSTANDABLE. I enjoy the technology immensely and would have enjoyed a little more techno-in-my thriller but overall it was very well handled.

GOOD JOB, Mr. Edwards!

May I call you Jeff now?

5.0 out of 5 stars A Well Written, Spellbinding, and Gripping Tale of Military Suspense Aug. 5 2011
By Alain B. Burrese - Published on
As a former Army paratrooper and sniper, I often gravitate toward thrillers with a spec ops type hero, or something similar to that genre. I'll admit, I have not read many thrillers with the Navy in the forefront, unless it is about Navy SEALS. With that said, "The Seventh Angel" by Jeff Edwards looked like a good read, so I decided to add it to my reading queue for something a bit different. I am so very glad I did! "The Seventh Angel" is an excellent novel that keeps the reader engaged from the first page right up until that last word. I thoroughly enjoyed this page turning naval drama and look forward to reading more from Jeff Edwards.

Edwards, a retired U.S. Navy Chief Petty Officer and Anti-Submarine Warfare Specialist, writes with authority and a sophistication that will make all Navy veterans proud to have him championing naval tales. But more than the naval accuracy in his writing, Edwards developed the story and characters in a way that really makes you want to know more about them, care for them and find out what happens as the story progresses. It was a very well developed and engaging tale that contained suspense, action (albeit different from the kind of action in stories about spec ops missions or similar yarns about gun men), caring, morals, and a feeling that this could really take place at any time in our world today.

The story centers around a military revolt in southeastern Russia that puts a former hard-line Soviet leader in command of a ballistic missile submarine and its arsenal of nuclear weapons. He's not afraid to use the nukes to achieve his goal of recapturing the might and glory of the fallen Soviet Union. With great descriptions of America's defense systems for such an incident, Edwards weaves into the tale a lone U.S. Navy warship, with a civilian who dislikes the military and all it stand for on-board, that is the World's last hope to destroy the submarine before it can launch a full out nuclear attack that will destroy the world as we know it. And weave a tale Edwards does! It is top-notch story telling at its best.

If you enjoy suspenseful naval stories, "The Seventh Angel" is a must read. However, I'd also add that this novel is a must read for anyone who enjoys a well written, spellbinding, and gripping tale of military suspense.

5.0 out of 5 stars Absolutely Outstanding (AGAIN) Jan. 24 2011
By William K Chadwick - Published on
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
The reason this book got five stars from me was because there is no ten star rating available. Once again, former USN Chief Edwards entralls us with an exciting tale of the modern Navy going in harms way, kinda like real life only we never hear about a lot of it. The USS Towers, which has been repaired after almost ending up in Davy Jones locker in Mr. Edwards first novel Torpedo (if you haven't read it yet, you should but don't need to to enjoy this book), is back, along with Commander (ship's captain) Bowie and sonar Chief McPherson. This time they're dealing with a lunatic rebel Russian governor who breaks away his province and takes control of a nuclear russian submarine armed with ICBM's with nuclear warheads. They also have to deal with a civilian tech rep. for a proto-type underwater robot who dislikes the military but makes it clear she puts up with the Navy and it's people simply because her company pays her to. The way the author weaves in backstories of the main characters, yet maintains a fast paced, exciting story is just fantastic. He goes into just enough detail on weapons and systems to help with the story but not so much as to befuddle the average reader. I had trouble finding a spot in the story where I felt I could quit reading for awhile and not spend the next twenty hours wondering what would happen next. I stayed up way too late several nights saying "I'll just read ONE more chapter, then go to bed".
If I have one complaint about this book, it would simply be the lack of my beloved LAMP's helos in this story. They played a prominent part in Torpedo and having spent seven years active Navy (former AX2) the last three with HSL-33 which was a LAMP's squadron, I had looked forward to reading about my modern day counterparts in this book. None the less, this was a great story and I heartily recommend everyone get a copy and get as lost in the story as I did. When you're done, I'm sure you'll start feeling a little anxious about the state of other countries nuclear stockpiles too. Mr. Edwards has thrown some real hard to take and surprising twists and turns into this book and it WILL make you squirm a little, at least I did and am not ashamed to admit it.
