Read Hunter Killer: The War with China: The Battle for the Central Pacific (Dan Lenson #17) Online Free - The war with China escalates—the dramatic and all-too-real seventeenth novel in the Dan Lenson naval-thriller series.
World War with China explodes in this seventeenth thriller featuring U.S. Navy hero Dan Lenson–newly promoted to admiral, at least for the duration. In Hunter Killer, the United States stands nearly alone in its determination to fight. China's naval and air forces utilize advanced technology and tactical nuclear weapons to devastate America's traditional sea power, while its massive army swiftly forces humiliating treaties on Japan, the Philippines, and other crucial allies.
Commanding a combined US–South Korea force, Lenson wonders if his embattled group can possibly keep sea lanes open in the Central Pacific, to turn the tide and buy time for the Allies to regroup. But when his own flagship comes under ferocious attack, he must leave it to assume command elsewhere—without knowing when he’ll be able to return. In the meantime, SEAL operator Teddy Oberg, escaping from a hellish POW camp, heads west through desolate mountains toward what he hopes will be freedom. And in Washington, DC, Dan’s wife Blair Titus helps formulate America's military and political response to overwhelming setbacks in the Pacific and at home.
Filled with dramatic battle scenes from massive ship, submarine, and air warfare to desperate hand-to-hand Marine Corps combat, and informed by the author's own background as a Navy captain and defense analyst, Hunter Killer is a powerful, all-too-believable novel about how the next world war might unfold.

Didn't care about characters. Perhaps if I'd read earlier ones I'd feel differently. Short-hand for weapons system left me uncertain about what their functions were. Read 70% and quit. Never felt I understood the overall situation. I was hoping for another Tom Clancy but found myself disappointed...

Really a collection of chapters from a much longer work. The author is a solid writer, but the editorial decision to spread the narrative over many many books was disappointing. I was left with the feeling that there was no particular beginning or end to this work. Multi-volume stories can be wel...

I have read nearly all of David Poyer's books and I like his detail, character development and the stories he weaves. This book should merit higher marks and a more positive review from me except for two major flaws; first is Hunter Killer is only 1/2, or 1/3 or perhaps only 1/4 of this story. Th...

Want to know what a war with a peer adversary might be like, a war in which we cannot just declare victory and walk away when it becomes difficult? One in which we do not have overwhelming strength? This book continues the evolving war between the US and China which began in "Tipping Point" with...

I have long been an avid reader of David Poyer and this series. But, sadly, it appears that like far to many authors today he no longer writes stand along books but only one continuing story. I like series, but only when each book stands alone as a completed story where this one leaves all the pr...

Finally, the next installment has arrived! The quality of writing and the excitement of the story are just as good and fulfilling as the prior entries in the series. I just wish we did not have to wait a full year for the next installment. Please, Mr. Poyer, can we have the next installment in si...

I never received my copy that I won in a GOODREADS giveaway back on Sep 12, 2017. I've reached out with no response. Sadly, I need to clear my reading queue & shall assign a 1 star rating. I was excited to have won & looked forward to reading. If I ever receive it, I'll read & post co...

I love reading Poyer. Dan Lenson is a great and flawed leader, but also a true hero. This is a very good continuation of the series. However, I hate books with no real ending... until next time?
When is the next installment due? I’ll be looking...

Kept me wide awake at night finishing this book and before I knew it, I was all done. Once again Mr. Power delivers another epic Lenson novel. The one draw back is it is much too short! Can't wait to see what comes next.
