Rick Campbell

A native of Cocoa, Florida, Rick Campbell attended the United States Naval Academy in Annapolis, Maryland, and spent over 30 years in the Navy. His tours of duty include four nuclear powered submarines, the Pentagon, and the Undersea Weapons Program Office. On his last submarine, he was one of the two men whose permission was required to launch its 24 nuclear warhead-tipped missiles.

Rick considered writing for many years, and as he approached retirement from the Navy, he wrote THE TRIDENT DECEPTION, a novel that draws on his extensive knowledge of submarine warfare.

Rick lives with his family in the Washington, D.C. area, where he is working on the sequel to THE TRIDENT DECEPTION, due out from St. Martin's Press in 2015.

Rogue elements within the Mossad have learned that Iran has developed its first nuclear weapon and, in 10 days, will detonate it --- and the target is Israel. The suspected weapon complex is too far underground for conventional weapons to harm it, and the only choice is a pre-emptive nuclear strike. With limited time, this rogue group initiates a long-planned operation called the Trident Deception. They’ll transmit false orders and use a U.S. nuclear submarine to launch the attack.
