The Hunt For Red October – Tom Clancy

Hunt for red octoberExtremely detailed, well-crafted book, with lots of interesting sub plots, that mesh together beautifully.  A Russian submarine captain, and certain members of his crew want to defect to the United States.  A young CIA operative, Jack Ryan, figures out what the captain is planning to do, and moves mountains to help him because the captain brings with him a top-secret, Russian missile submarine.  Although parts of the narrative are pretty technical as the author delves into long descriptions of military gadgetry, the plot is so well-designed and exciting, it doesn’t detract from the narrative in the least.
