Rick Campbell

Rick Campbell, a retired Navy Commander, spent over twenty years in the Navy, serving on four nuclear-powered submarines.  On his last submarine, he was one of the two men whose permission is required to launch its nuclear warhead-tipped missiles. Upon retirement, Campbell was signed by St. Martin’s Press for his novel The Trident Deception, which was hailed by Booklist as “The best submarine novel written in the last thirty years, since Tom Clancy’s – The Hunt for Red October“.  His first three books were Barnes & Noble Top-20 bestsellers, and his fourth—Blackmail—releases in June 2017 at bookstores everywhere.
