Summary

Jerry Mitchell is on exercises off the coast of Pakistan when his submarine is ordered to a rendezvous off the Iranian coast. Once there, disembarked SEALs, experts in seaborne commando operations, are to extract two Iranian nationals who have sensitive information on Iran's nuclear weapons program.

But while en route, the ASDS minisub suffers a battery fire, killing one crew member and forcing the rest of the occupants, four SEALs and LCDR Mitchell, to scuttle their disabled craft and swim for shore. There they find the two Iranians waiting for them, but their attempts at returning to Michigan are thwarted by heavy Iranian patrol boat activity. When agents of Iran's secret police, VEVAK, appear, escape seems all but impossible.

As each attempt falls apart, time and options are quickly running out...

And when they find themselves surrounded by Iranian Revolutionary Guards Corp troops, they create on a bold plan to escape by sea. It's a desperate gamble, but it's the only way to get the proof of the Iranian plot to the US... and prevent a devastating new war ... in Larry Bond's Exit Plan .

This edition of the book is the deluxe, tall rack mass market paperback.

Booklist Review: "Jerry Mitchell, hero from two other Bond novels, is forced to deal with a global game-changer. The submarine he's stationed on is conducting exercises off the coast of Pakistan when he receives orders to head to Iran and retrieve two key people with information regarding Iran's nuclear program. During the mission, an equipment malfunction destroys the craft. Now stranded with the two Iranian nationals they were sent to retrieve, the team learns that their chances of being rescued are slim. The timing for this ripped-from-the-headlines thriller couldn't be better, but, unfortunately, Bond drags what should have been an exciting story line, producing an overlong book that definitely creeps along at various points. Overall, though, Exit Plan is a mostly tense military thriller with an appealing protagonist. But it should have been 100 pages shorter.--Ayers, Jeff Copyright 2010 Booklist"

Publisher's Weekly Review: "Set in 2013, this ripped from the headlines tale of SEAL adventures and global politics from bestseller Bond (Red Storm Rising with Tom Clancy) shows once again his absolute mastery of the military action novel. Because of hardships imposed by the world's economic sanctions and sabotage, two high-level members of the Iranian military conclude that their nuclear engineers won't be able to build an atomic weapon anytime soon. They come up with a desperate plan: pretend to be readying a nuclear test to trick the Israelis and Americans into implementing a first strike. This action will secure the backing of the rest of the Arab world in a regional war against Israel. Proof of this plan rests with two disaffected Iranians, Shirin Naseri, who works in a nuclear lab, and her husband, Yousef, an officer in the country's air defenses. After the couple offer proof to the CIA, a SEAL team sets out to bring them out of Iran. As the mission goes seriously awry, the increasingly desperate rescue attempt forms the thrilling spine of this unstoppable page-turner. Bond's refusal to demonize most of the Iranians gives the characters a solid, real-life feel that cranks up both the tension and believability. Agent: Robert Gottlieb, Trident Media. (Apr.)
