Summary

In Rick Campbell’s newest thriller, a military coup in Russia leads to a swift invasion of former Soviet territories - while the US has been rendered powerless to respond.

In Russia, the military is anxious to assert its military strength and regain its role as a superpower. The Russian president refuses to greenlight a bold plan to disable American strategic nuclear capability and retake Ukraine and the Baltic States, fearing the potential consequences of involving nuclear weapons. But the generals won't have it and at the first opportunity, they overthrow the president in a military coup. Then they use a narrow window to initiate their bold plan - the Zolotov option - which will render all of America's B2 bombers and ballistic missiles useless. With the US off the board, they swiftly invade Ukraine with an overwhelming force, an invading Army that even NATO can't hope to resist. 

Now, it's game on. Without their primary weapons, the US has to find a way to fight back on multiple fronts. If they're to have any chance, they'll have to overcome the malware that has grounded their ballistic missiles and planes, as well as secretly land a SEAL team to help rescue the imprisoned Russian president, and help retake control from the forces that are driving Europe into a continental war. 

Rick Campbell, one of the finest young military thriller writers, returns with his biggest and boldest audiobook to date.

Terrific Listen

Once again Rick Campbell has written a fabulous book. The characters are really now coming together and favourites are being formed. I'm used to books with a male lead, but Christine O'Connor is breaking that mould.

As the author note at the end makes clear, there will be more books in the series and I cannot wait!

The best submarine type books plus more says former submariner.

I served six years on nuclear submarines. These books including this one by Cdr. Campbell bring exciting yarns that involve submarine warfare action to life.
He writes in Way that I can create my own thoughts and visions of who the characters are.
So good. I listen on Audible and as a runner was able to get longer runs in to get more book. Hard to put down. Treason was super and I was trying to figure it out but various twists left me hanging until the author pulled it all together.
I want movies of this!
I was saddened that Christine was only referenced to “college” and not my beloved Penn State as she was in prior books.

Thanks Rick campbell

Rick is one of a group of writers who not only tell a story
And with the very thoughtful choice of these words help encourage my mind. To actually help me feel that I am right in the middle of the action (sorry for.the run on sentence and some weird punctuation.
I am blind and ricks abilities put this book over the top! For those of us who remember those bygone days of old time radio you are in for a real treat when you READ this audiobook!!!

I started with this one.

I started with this book I knew it was a part of a series but I started here anyway. After I read it I didn't feel like I missed any part of the story. I have now gone back and bought and listened to all of them.

You can start anywhere in this series and not feel you missed out on something. Of course listening to them in order you see the development of each character. Rick has no real "hero" in this series it is based around the Sub, POUTS, NSA and a Seal Team. Which gives this series a different feel/read to it from all other thriller!

Another captivating book in an exciting series

Once again, Rick Campbell tells a great story. Just when you think you know what’s going to happen next, the plot takes another unexpected turn. Of course, as in any thriller, much of what happens is beyond the scope of reality—we hope!

Worst in series

This book seemed a bit dumbed down compared to the first four. I didn’t enjoy it as much because of this. I enjoyed the deeper tactical jargon from the previous books.

Excellent

Love the series and Treason captivated me from start to finish. I my job I talk to a lot of people. When i discover someone is a Submariner or build Submarines I tell them about Rick Campbell’s books. I look forward to the next.
