THE KRAKEN STRIKE
Few people can say they started a war, but Park Myeong could.
The young woman sent a desperate message across the demilitarized zone separating North Korea from South Korea. Working at North Korea’s Defense Ministry, she’d learned of secret plans that she knew must be leaked to the outside world.
Kim Jong-un, leader of the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea, faces his worst nightmare: a coup.
To counter the betrayal of his trusted advisors, he appeals to the downtrodden ordinary people who’ve been indoctrinated from an early age to regard him as God-like. He brings the people together against their common and long-hated enemy: Japan. Kim hatches his nuclear plans.
But Park Myeong’s message has been heard. With a grim inevitability, South Korea, China and the USA find themselves unwillingly drawn into the conflict. Can Japan’s people be spared mass death by the Dear Leader’s folly?
At his forward base in Guam, USN Commander Nathan Blake first hears the bugle call. The USS Stonewall Jackson slips her moorings, sets sail, and glides into the dark depths. Her destination is north, towards Fate knows what?
Follow Nathan and his crew into the depths of the Kraken’s lair.
