Author:  Jeff Edwards

Title:  Torpedo

Publisher:  iUniverse

Reviewer: Gayle Lynds AAA Member

A top-flight military thriller!

Awash with excitement, Torpedo by Jeff Edwards is the sort of debut novel that holds one's attention from first word to last. The characters are rich and complex. The plot is not only full of surprises but also is delivered with an unerring eye for detail. The dialog crackles, and the prose is often lyrical.

In military thrillers, too often characters get lost amid a book's ballistic pace. Not true here. You'll savor the growth and changes that occur in officers and enlisted men and women as they face increasingly difficult challenges. With the sure scalpel of a surgeon, Edwards plumbs the depths of our shared humanness, revealing subtleties of the soul.

International thrillers need exotic locales, clashing cultures, and global events that threaten to spin the world out of control. Edwards delivers all with a thrilling authority that's backed up by his years as a specialist in the U.S. Navy. From the first chapter assault by a "sledgehammer" --- a Navy code word for a motorboat armed with an over-the-shoulder missile launcher --- to the climax's titanic naval battle, Torpedo is a masterful work.
