Publisher's Summary

Below a dark and angry sea, men in the submarines of the British Navy prowl. Explosive spherical mines lie silently in wait for their weathered vessels. At any time, the abyssals of the Atlantic can be rocked by the terrifying din of a mine exploding and a boat imploding. Manning these cramped vessels is a fulltime hardship, with myriad risks and sometimes terrifying emergencies. But an even more dangerous vocation can be found on land at the British Navy’s Special Counter-measures - a place where men with either a death wish or nothing left to lose defuse enormous seamines. If any of these subjects stimulate your interest, Douglas Reeman’s Twelve Seconds to Live explores them with zest and tasteful drama in this masterful work of naval fiction.

    "Too many story threads"
    Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

    Reeman's stories always have a genuine feel to them, but there's just too many different stories combined in this book. In the end, I spent too much time working out which characters were taking centre stage at the moment.


    Would you recommend Twelve Seconds To Live to your friends? Why or why not?

    Certainly not as a first foray into Reeman's work. He's written much better stuff.

    "Twelve Seconds To Live"

    I cant say enough how badly this is narrated. The guy has no idea how this was supposed to be done. Please get it reread by David Rintoul.
    Bought the book instead. First time in 2 years i haven`t finished listening to a book.
