The book that really put Campbell on the map was The Trident Deception. This book sees the USS Kentucky, a Trident ballistic missile submarine, on a routine patrol. The sub then receives a launch order as well as coordinates where to launch it before being completely cut off from all communication. As the ship heads to the location, they don’t know that the launch orders didn’t come from the United States but actually a rogue group. A senior officer is then given a mission to track down the sub and stop the attack – by any means necessary – before it launches.

Another book by Campbell is called Treason. This book sees trouble in Russia as the military pulls a coup to take over the President with plans of attacking the US an retaking Ukraine and the Baltic States. Their plan to take all America’s bombers and ballistic missiles off the board and do their plan against the Ukraine. Without their primary weapons, the US will have to get crafty to save the Russian president and retake control of the forces that could cause a world war.
