China Sea (Dan Lenson Novels) by David Poyer

David Poyers cycle of modern Navy tales ranks among the finest nautical fiction of our time.With CHINA SEA, his self-doubting protagonist Daniel V. Lenson faces for the first time the unforgiving challenge of command at sea.Ordered to relieve an alcoholic skipper, Dan finds he has inherited a damaged ship, an untrustworthy crew, and an ambiguous mission.He is to take the USS Oliver C. Gaddis, soon to become the PNS Tughril, on her final voyage to be donated to Pakistan.But in Kirachi, Dan gets new orders: take Gaddis still further east, and operate against modern pirates preying on commercial shipping in the remote, dangerous South China Sea.Pursuing an elusive and shadowy foe into an exotic, isolated world of hazardous reefs and tropical islands, Dan gradually discerns a larger purpose behind his supposed objective.Who are these pirates?What expansionist cunning supports them?Abandoned by the Navy, threatened by a mutinous crew, a murderous shipmate, and an approaching typhoon, Gaddis struggles to survive without crossing the shadow-line herself.Filled with suspense, battle, and unforgettable descriptions of the seas beauty and violence, CHINA SEA continues Dan Lensons star-crossed career in what Booklist calls, One of the outstanding bodies of nautical fiction during the last half-century.
