ARABIAN STORM, new submarine SEAL thriller from George Wallace and Don Keith, now available for pre-order in e-book format. The title will be released in June 2020 in e-book, paper and audio editions by Severn River Press. The book will be the next title in the "Hunter Killer Series" of thriller novels from the prolific pair of authors. Though the series does feature many of the same characters from book to book, they do not have to be read in any particular order and each novel stands on its own. This will be the fifth book in the series. See the Wallace-Keith website for more information about the "Hunter Killer Series" of submarine/SEAL adventures from Don Keith and CDR George Wallace (ret.)..

The latest submarine thriller in THE HUNTER KILLER SERIES by former nuclear submarine skipper George Wallace and award-winning and best-selling author Don Keith is released by Severn River Press. The book titled FAST ATTACK is available in hardback, paperback, e-book and audiobook formats. In this exciting techno-thriller, a belligerent Russia seeks to reunite the Soviet Union—starting with Lithuania. As the US sends military support, Russia’s navy forces a dangerous face-off in the Atlantic in what the authors promise to be one of the most unique and astounding battle sequences ever written. Meanwhile, two US submarines are ensnared in a perilous game of cat and mouse with a mysterious Russian craft. When the US president orders all vessels back to port, Commander Joe Glass and his fast attack submarines find a way to remain at sea to engage the enemy. But not all aboard the submarines are who they seem… and with a threatening storm bearing down, the consequences of betrayal could be deadly.
