Raid on Truman is an action thriller set onboard an American carrier, the Truman. A North Korean special forces operation sees an attack on the vessel; it starts with a gas attack sending most of the crew to sleep, but Lieutenant Simmons and the engineering team avoid the gas and end up in a battle against the North Korean forces who plan on sailing the ship back to North Korea.
The backstory for the attack is set quickly and effectively, along with why the ship is close to the Korean peninsula. The action is fast-paced as the crew of the ship look to repel the attackers and is described in plenty of detail. The book is a genuine page turner as the battle on the ship takes twists and turns. An excellent book and very easy to recommend.
