Reviewers called James H. Cobb's first two Amanda Lee Garrett novels, Sea Strike and Choosers of the Slain, "breathtaking," "lightning-paced," and "hot as a Sea SLAM missile with target lock" (Library Journal). Murder Ink even named Garrett "the best naval hero since Tom Clancy's Jack Ryan." In Sea Fighter, Garrett heads a U.N. task force made up of units from Great Britain, France, and the United States. Her mission: halt a rapidly escalating African civil war. A renegade Nigerian general has invaded Sierra Leone and Guinea and is determined to establish a new "West African Union" no matter the human cost. Garrett's only hope is an arsenal of untested weapons including a flotilla of fast, heavily armed stealth hovercraft specifically designed for a deadly coastal seawar and a gigantic ocean-borne fortress that can be anchored off an enemy's coast, literally at the doorstep of their capital city. Cobb, "a military buff par excellence" (Publishers Weekly), has crafted another riveting tale featuring one of the most original characters in military fiction and the state-of-the-art technology and strategy the U.S. Navy will almost certainly one day employ.

This book is amazing...right down to the nitty gritty details. It has some great comedy (for relief) and loads of action with complex, gripping battles. I would highly recommend this book.
