Rick Campbell's "Trident Deception"

5.0 out of 5 stars Better than Tom Clancy

Fast Attack Action Novel

It's damn clear how Rick Campbell spent his 25 years on US Submarines but where did he learn to write so well? Looking at the other reviews, I keep reading how "he's the next Tom Clancy". I think he's more. Tom Clancy (rest his soul) only really wrote two good books--the first two--and the rest were mediocre at best. Rick Campbell puts more real human characters and emotions in this book than in all of Clancy's later work AND has every ounce of technical accuracy as well.

The tension starts fast and never stops right to the final pages. It's a thrill ride with all the intensity of the best combat novels and all the personal doubts and fears that mark a writer of exceptional ability.

So, yeah, BETTER than Tom Clancy.
