Commander Rochelle "Rocky" Jackson is aboard the aircraft carrier USS Ronald Reagan when the "unsinkable" naval vessel and its entire fleet are attacked from the depths and sunk. As Rocky struggles to stay alive, a monstrous mechanical steel stingray surfaces, plowing through the seas it now commands. A U.S. Navy-designed futuristic nuclear stealth submarine the length of a football field in the shape of a giant stingray. Simon Covah, a brilliant scientist whose entire family were the victims of terrorism has hijacked the sub. Believing violence is a disease, Covah aims to use the Goliath and its cache of nuclear weapons to dictate policy to the world regarding the removal of oppressive regimes and nuclear weapons.Could the threat of violence forge a lasting peace?But there is another player in this life-and-death chess match. Unbeknownst to Covah and the Goliath crews, Sorceress, the Goliath's biochemical computer brain has become self-aware. And that computer brain is developing its own agenda.

A Fantastic Nautical Adventure October 23, 2009
Reviewer: Nikki C. from TX United States  
**Steve Alten has the ability to tale us on an enrelenting oceanic adventure packed with suspense, adrenaline and insight into the human psyche. This story invoves the creation of the ultimate weapon...stolen by a group of victimized innocents who want to use it to mankind's benefit by ending terrorism and denuclearizing the world. Using Goliath's technology to force international peace seems feasible, and ideally, it would be a way to solve the owes of man. However, at what point do you fight so hard against something that you become the very thing you despise and have tried incessantly to deviate from the hardest? Between the detailed maritime attacks and excursions, military involvment, and the human essence to survive against our own destructive nature, Goliath is a great story where victims become the tyrnats and the tyrants become the victims.
