Hannah Bryson loves working with her brother, Connor, as
marine architects. They complement one another perfectly,
as Hannah is cool and analytical and Connor is idealistic
with a passionate love of machines. Their job takes them
all over the world, but their latest plum assignment is in
their backyard in Maine. Hannah and Connor have the honor
to prepare a Russian nuclear submarine, Silent Run, for a
museum. On examination, they discover a weird hidden metal
plate filled with scratches that resemble intricate symbols
and geometric shapes. Before they can report it, Connor is
murdered and an attempt is made on Hannah's life.
Devastated by her brother's death, Hannah seeks revenge.
She doesn't trust the government agent who will not give
her a straight answer. Instead, Hannah teams with Kirov, a
secretive man with his own agenda. Both are driven by
revenge. Hannah and Kirov search for the obsessed killer
while attempting to solve the cryptic clues. The killer
wants them eliminated from the hunt and will stop at
nothing to have them out of his way.
Fans of Iris Johansen will be happy with this
collaboration with her son, Roy. It reads like pure
Johansen with added action, technical details and an
international treasure hunt. The fast-moving plot never
slows down. The authors have limited the romance and it's
minimal within the storyline.
Brilliant marine architect Hannah Bryson has been given the
job of a lifetime. A U.S. maritime museum has just acquired
the decommissioned Soviet submarine Silent Thunder for
public exhibition. Itâ€™s Hannahâ€™s job to make sure that

safe for the thousands of visitors anticipated. Enlisting
the aid of her brother, Connor, they examine the enormous
vessel and delve into its long---and lethal---history.
But is it really a trap?
In the course of their investigation, Connor discovers a
mysterious message behind one of the shipâ€™s panels. But
before he can figure out what it means, thereâ€™s a deadly
assault on Silent Thunder. . .
Though the U.S. government tries to warn Hannah away,
sheâ€™ll stop at nothing to find the ruthless mastermind
behind her brotherâ€™s death. Even if it means joining forces
with a mysterious man who may be even more dangerous than
the enemy she has sworn to bring down. As Hannah finds
herself in the crossfire of an epic standoff, her only hope
for survival is to unravel the subâ€™s explosive secret. But
someoneâ€™s willing to kill to make sure Silent Thunder stays
silent. . .
