Pride Runs Deep

BOOK I of the Jack Tremain Series -

March 1943: Shattered by the surprise attack at Pearl Harbor, the U.S. is rebuilding its fleet while the badly damaged Submarine Division Seven holds the line against the Japanese Navy.

The loss of even one more submarine could be devastating--and every enemy ship that slips through means more lives lost. But Lieutenant Commander Jack Tremain is determined to whip into shape a boat that's returned from a hellish patrol and make the Japanese pay--even if this is his last mission ever.

"Tremain proves himself an admirable hero in the tradition of the finest historical naval fiction."
- Publishers Weekly (Starred Review)

"A great submarine story, on par with The Hunt for Red October."
- Nelson DeMille

Sink The Shigure
BOOK II of the Jack Tremain Series -

October 1943: Lieutenant Commander Jack Tremain returns to the Pacific theater. He's recovered from his wounds, but not from the loss of his wife. Plunging back into active duty, he takes on a new sub and a new mission - to intercept a Japanese tanker convoy.

But when Tremain spots the Shigure - the Japanese destroyer that sank his beloved first command, the Seatrout - he declares his own personal war on the dreaded ship known as the "Submarine Killer."

As he relentlessly pursues the enemy warship through raging storms and dangerous waters, nothing can stop Tremain's hell-bent obsession with sinking the Shigure at any cost...

Reviews of the Jack Tremain Series
"Cooke powerfully captures the heroic highs and hellish lows of our WWII submariners — warriors who served valiantly and silently far beneath the sea.”
- W.E.B. Griffin

"Detail and tactile precision of diesel-run sub warfare."
- Publishers Weekly (June 2007)

Rise To Victory
Returning from deployment in the Middle East, attack sub USS Providence has received emergency tasking orders only miles from homeport. The mission: head for Indonesia and evacuate a U.S. citizen endangered by a violent rebellion.

In the waters off the Moluccan Islands, Providence's captain, David Edwards, and his dog-tired, land-eyed crew discover there's more to this mission than meets the eye. For they're mere pawns in a much deadlier game.

Positioned on the front lines of the war on terrorism, the hunters of the USS Providence are about to engage with a rebel sub in an epic undersea duel.

And only the victor can surface alive...

"A sensational seaborne thriller."
- W.E.B. Griffin

"Will hold your interest from the moment you pick it up."

Dive Beneath The Sun
A secret cargo is headed for Japan. The Japanese High Command has entrusted it to a veteran destroyer captain - the best in the Imperial Navy - and he will stop at nothing to see that it reaches its final destination...

Carrier-based dive bombers could not stop it, nor could the guerilla-commandos of the Philippine Islands.

Now, the submarine Wolffish is the last ditch hope of the Allied Command. Still shaken by a recent tragedy, and desperately low on fuel, torpedoes, and morale, the war-weary submarine and her eighty-man crew must pull together to track down and destroy the cargo before it reaches Japan, and changes the course of the war...

Wolfpack 351
After a harrowing war patrol in the Sea of Japan, the U.S. submarines of Wolfpack 351 are low on fuel, torpedoes, and morale.

Their only means of escape – a narrow passage teeming with enemy aircraft, mines, and coastal batteries – is guarded by a menacing Japanese fleet led by a legendary admiral hell-bent on stopping them.

Facing the imminent destruction of the entire wolfpack, and with few options remaining, the American admirals in Pearl Harbor turn to an aging submarine, the only boat close enough to help. With time running out, the USS Aeneid – a V-boat from another era – must spring the trapped submarines from their watery prison before they meet their fates under the hull-shattering wrath of the enemy’s depth charges...

The Constantine Covenant
701 BC: The Assyrian army lays siege to the Holy City of Jerusalem, where the ancestors of the Jewish race await annihilation—until one miraculous night when the Assyrians are scourged from the earth by the Hand of God. Jerusalem is saved.

But the secret of its salvation was lost in the desert sands...

1944 AD: Across the globe, Nazi agents are gathering what appears to be a collection of unrelated relics. Allied intelligence agencies suspect the Nazis have stumbled onto an ancient secret—a weapon that could turn the tide of the war.

Special Agent Matt Hart is sent on a mission to infiltrate the crew of a German U-boat conveying the artifacts to a secret location, and discover the Nazis’ true intentions. But what he uncovers is a plot that crosses all battle lines, reaching beyond mere victory in war. Trusting in nothing but his own skills and instincts for survival, Hart must brave combat at sea, on land, and in the air to find the Nazis’ secret—a secret that has shaped the history of the world—before it can be used to seal the fate of millions...
