Riassunto: Author Philip Robinson blends reality with a dose of the outlandish in this fast-paced thriller: Kraken Corporation is too big to fail?or control. Spreading its tentacles into every profit centre around the globe?oil, gold, diamonds?it takes what it wants and leaves behind a path of death and destruction. When Emma Baine, heir to Kraken, publicly announces her intention to end the corporation?s history of profiteering, murder, and monopoly, a bomb explodes on the rostrum, killing her instantly. To her brother Carson, it?s the perfect punch line to Emma?s childish statement. He took out his sister, and now he?s going to take over the firm. Using Kraken?s ?private security force,? a mercenary army that rolls over every obstacle to profitability, and the USS Alcatraz, an old Russian nuclear sub retrofitted into a gargantuan underwater prison, Carson imprisons everyone he perceives as an enemy?while the highest figures in government turn a blind eye. But there?s one obstacle Carson can?t grind under his heel: an ex-Marine named Vaughan. As Emma?s former lover and bodyguard, Vaughn is tough, smart?and very angry.

Recensione: Ten Reasons Why USS Alcatraz, Was Written

Michael Connelly, best-selling author of The Black Box, interviews fellow author Alan Russell on his new police procedural Burning Man.

A thriller with a submarine on the cover suggests many things ? from Tom Clancy to Das Boot and countless other underwater military yarns. Phil Robinson?s USS Alcatraz is a different beast entirely, a churning and rousing dive into what he calls ?mayhem and skullduggery.? We asked Phil why he created such a wild story and what animates him as a storyteller. Here are his 10 reasons.

1. I wanted to write a book that was outrageous and fun, with huge characters that you could hiss and boo.

2. The USS Alcatraz exists the same sort of alternate reality as other big adventure stories, like Raiders of the Lost Arc or Batman. The idea behind it?that a wealthy malcontent can drop his enemies to the bottom of the ocean?is a fun one. The story is supposed to be plausible, rather than likely.

3. I started writing because I was bored with thrillers that read like non-fiction memoirs. I didn?t want to read about soldiers unpacking and packing rucksacks and discussing their load-out and mission planning. I am much more interested in mayhem and skullduggery. p>
