Former Naval pilot Jerry Mitchell’s new career as a nuclear engineer has been riddled with difficulty. His first mission, aboard the USS Memphis, put him in the crosshairs of a volatile international dispute, but his heroic actions earned him an instant promotion.

Now a navigator on the USS Seawolf, one of the U.S. Navy’s most capable nuclear attack submarines, Mitchell will find his skills once again challenged. A stealth reconnaissance mission, deep in the Barents Sea, turns harrowing as Mitchell and his crew find themselves the target of a Russian submarine commanded by the energetic but inexperienced Captain First Rank Alexi Petrov.

Petrov's missteps cause the two subs to collide, leaving the Russian boat crippled and stuck at the bottom of the ocean. Mitchell must make one the most difficult decisions of his life: escape with his crew intact or risk their all their lives to save his enemies?

Larry Bond uses his experience as an intelligence officer, warfare analyst, and anti-submarine technology expert to give readers an expertly crafted techno-thriller. Like Run Silent, Run Deep, and The Hunt for Red October, Cold Choices takes readers deep into the minds of submariners and the treacherous world in which they dwell.
