Reviews

'From the depths of the Pacific and the depths of CIA covert operations comes an absorbing tale of daring engineers and shadowy espionage. A terrific read.' -- David E. Hoffman, New York Times bestselling author of The Billion Dollar Spy
'A riveting account of the American intelligence community. Told in fascinating detail, The Taking of K-129 is nonfiction at its best because with every page I had to remind myself this actually happened.' -- Kevin Maurer, co-author of the #1 New York Times bestseller No Easy Day
'Josh Dean has a gift for unearthing remarkable stories lost to history, and in The Taking of K-129 he has uncovered perhaps the most remarkable one of all - a story replete with spies and engineering marvels and a secret drama unfolding thousands of feet beneath the sea. Brilliantly researched and beautifully written, this is a book you can't put down.' -- David Grann, New York Times bestselling author of Killers of the Flower Moon
'As a former submariner and navy diver, I give Josh Dean an A+ for The Taking of K-129. This non-fiction account of one of the most dangerous and daring missions of the Cold War is well-researched and reads like a Tom Clancy thriller.' -- W. Craig Reed, bestselling author of Red November
'If you've been hungry for a submarine tale in the league of The Hunt For Red October, but subscribe to the belief that the truth is stranger than fiction, you'll devour The Taking of K-129, an epic befitting the top shelf of espionage and military reads. Prepare for impact - you won't be able to put this one down.' -- Eric Blehm, bestselling author of Fearless and The Only Thing Worth Dying For
