Product Description

For nearly 40 years, both the US and Soviet governments have continued to cover up the facts of the sinking of the USS Scorpion. It was no accident but rather reprisal for the sinking of the Soviet missile sub K-129, which had gone down in the Pacific just ten weeks previous. But both sides quickly realized that the sinking—if publicly known—could have turned the Cold War into a very hot war.

Scorpion Down is a grippingly told story of war, politics, personal loss, and governmental coverup.


“Ferrone's craggy voice gives credence to the story as he reads with great conviction; he sounds like an old sea captain himself.”

“Richard Ferrone is a terrific reader; his gravelly voice fairly crackles with intensity throughout, injecting a can't-put-it-down element into this very well-written text. A first-class audiobook; highly recommended.”
