    One thought on “To Hunt a Sub

    1. Carrie

      A fusion of technology, academics, and archaeology make “To Hunt a Sub” a thrilling ride. The stakes are high as a PhD student and an ex-Seal risk all to stop terrorists from stealing American submarines carrying nuclear weapons. The writing is clipped and crisp, fitting well with the genre—there’s little fluff. The author’s expertise in technology shines through. A quick read I finished in just a few days. Solid debut novel.

    2. Carol Balawyder

      Islamic terrorists have managed to shut down an American submarine’s computer system while Kalian Delamagente (a PHd student at Columbia University) and the protagonist of this well researched novel, has invented a robot which is able to detect subs thus leading multiple attempts by the terrorists to get their hands on Delamagente’s research. This political thriller plays on both robotics and paleontology – an interesting and unique mixture. Aside from the plot, I was impressed by the numb [...]

    3. Michael Smart

      J Murray’s long anticipated thriller, To Hunt a Sub, is a satisfying read from a fresh voice in the genre, and well worth the wait. The time devoted to research paid off, providing a much appreciated authenticity to the sciency aspects of the plot. The author also departs from the formulistic pacing and heroics of contemporary commercialized thrillers. Instead, the moderately paced narrative is a seduction, rather than a sledgehammer. The author takes time rendering relatable characters with i [...]

      A thriller with a pace that entices, rather than pushes, you forward. This book which has long been in the works finally seems to make the wait worthwhile. In creating a scenario which is quite technical, the author's knowledge and research into the subject guides the reader through the plot quite effortlessly. Though a writer of long standing, this first fiction novel of Jacqui Murray leaves one wondering and waiting for what else is still to come from her pen. A study of prehistoric hominids a [...]

    5. Karen Walker

      Beautifully written and impeccably researched, I was drawn into the story and read it every free moment I had.

    6. Wendy Unsworth

      To Hunt a Sub gets off to a great start with the disabling of a nuclear submarine. The vessel is lost to the authorities who control its movements and the consequences for the crew are dire. Being able to locate and control the American fleet of subs would be a devastating terrorist weapon and this is what one group are attempting.It’s been a while since I have read a book in this genre but I have read enough to know the format and was expecting a lone deniable agent out there tracking down th [...]

      A fast-paced thriller steeped in intrigue and palaeoanthropology.To hunt a sub by J. Murray mixes military intrigue, the world of academia and a burgeoning romance between an ex-SEAL come professor and an upcoming academic who developed an AI to track the evolution of humans. Oh, and there is a terrorist plot as well.I wasn’t sure what to expect when I started reading this book. From the cover of the book one would expect it would be solely based on the navy, but on reading the blurb, there wa [...]

      I read To Hunt A Sub after its sequel Twenty Four Days. However, this did not spoil my enjoyment of either book.To Hunt A sub introduces Zeke Rowe, a retired navy SEAL, who becomes part of a team tasked with uncovering a terrorist plot to introduce a cybervirus into American Trident submarines.Kali Delamagente is developing an AI called Otto and becomes embroiled in the plot, when the full potential of Otto is realised by both the terrorists and the intelligence community. Kali learns who to tru [...]

      A Fascinating Debut NovelJacqui Murray has crafted a gripping read with this technothriller. At first, I thought it might be too specialized in the technical sense to hold my interest, but as I continued reading I was drawn in by the characters and the fast pace. The author's knowledge and writing ability made it a compelling story, and I look forward to reading more about its central characters in Book Two.

    10. Chaplain Stanleigh Chapin

      Very interestingThe various technologies that were described were a bit beyond my mid eighty year old comprehension. I did enjoy reading and then researching about it. As a Navy veteran and being around submarines was also a plus.

    11. Stephanie Faris

      From the first word of To Hunt a Sub, I knew that the author was someone who was a truly intelligent woman. The research and technical details she included in this book had me in complete awe. A cybervirus is crippling submarines--and as subs sunk to the bottom of the ocean, I found myself having a hard time breathing. It's up to Zeke and Kali to save the entire country using their brains. If you love thrillers, this is definitely one you can't miss!

    12. Stewart Hoffman

      This is a complex layered story that successfully blends well researched archaeology and cutting edge technology, with a high stakes terrorist plot to steal nuclear submarines. It’s got characters to root for, and villains to loathe. The whole thing moves a decent pace, and it’s entertaining.
