Twelve Seconds to Live by Douglas Reeman
For some, glory now takes second place to profit. The old submarine-chaser USS Hibiscus, re-fitting in a Hong Kong dockyard before being handed over to the Nationalist Chinese, is suddenly ordered to the desolate island group of Payenhau. For Captain Mark Gunnar - driven by the memory of his torture at the hands of the Viet Cong guerrillas - the new command is a chance to even the score against a ruthless, unrelenting enemy. But Payenhau is very different from his expectations To the residents and defence forces of the Crown Colony of Hong Kong, the war in Europe remains remote.
Even the massive build-up of Japanese forces on the Chinese border cannot dent their carefree optimism. Yet one man suspects the truth. To Brooke, attack by Japan seems inevitable. Sister battleships have been destroyed, and Sherbrooke cannot alter the bitter truth that there will be no half measures for HMS Reliant. There could be no mercy. To the men who fought to protect the vital, threatened Merchant Navy convoys in the Western Approaches, the Battle of the Atlantic was a full-scale war.
A relentless, savage war against an ever-present enemy and a violent sea - in an arena known only to its embittered survivors as the killing ground. HMS Gladiator was part of that war. The master of military historical fiction turns his discerning eye to the Korean War in this riveting new novel, which tells the dramatic story of the Americans and the Chinese who squared off in one of the deadliest campaigns in the annals of combat: Now there was to be no more retreat for Britain and her Allies.
At last the war was to be carried into enemy territory. And from captured bases and makeshift harbours in North Africa, the Royal Navy's Special Force was to be the probe and the spearhead of the advance. To this unorthodox war came the corvette H. Thistle and her commanding officer, John Crispin. It was in On the Black Sea, the Russians were fighting a desperate battle to regain control.
Twelve Seconds To Live
At last the British agreed to send them a small flotilla of motor torpedo boats under the command of John Devane. Devane had been in the Navy since the outbreak of war.
Below a dark and angry sea, men in the submarines of the British Navy prowl. Explosive spherical mines lie silently in wait for their weathered vessels.
At any time, the abyssals of the Atlantic can be rocked by the terrifying din of a mine exploding and a boat imploding. Manning these cramped vessels is a fulltime hardship, with myriad risks and sometimes terrifying emergencies. Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

Reeman's stories always have a genuine feel to them, but there's just too many different stories combined in this book. In the end, I spent too much time working out which characters were taking centre stage at the moment. Would you recommend Twelve Seconds To Live to your friends? Certainly not as a first foray into Reeman's work.
He's written much better stuff.
