Twelve Seconds to Live Book 7:Modern Naval Fiction Library

First you hear the quiet whirr. After that, you have only twelve seconds to live. The mine is an impartial killer. Defusing "the beast" requires steady nerves, steady hands--and an intrepid flirtation with death. Haunted by the mine that destroyed his first command, H.M. Submarine Tornado, Lieutenant-Commander David Masters defuses "the beast" on land and teaches the same deadly science to others. Each time these courageous, lonely men in the Special Countermeasures of the Royal Navy approach "the beast," they wonder which will run out first--time or luck?
