Female submarine sailor commits suicide onboard: NEW Thriller

First Sub Thriller of its kind: The Killing Depths Paperback by Martin Roy Hill 
"The USS Encinitas, the first attack submarine crewed by both men and women, stalks the Crescent Moon, a renegade Iranian sub armed with nuclear-tipped missiles." 


"The USS Encinitas has a problem. A female sailor who was thought to have committed suicide on the submarine is found to have been murdered."  - Evilcyclist's Blog

NCIS investigates female sub sailor's suicide....finds homicide,

Note:  The Killing Depths is on my reading list because it involves an SSN and NCIS. The concept of a serial killer among the crew of a U.S. submarine strains credibility for me at this point. How could such an animal survive screening (has Navy screening been relaxed unduly by a clueless administration, or perhaps another security contractor takes a shortcut on psychological fitness (related story below*)?  I trust an experienced historian, journalist, author and veteran like Martin Roy Hill will have answered my questions satisfactorily, and one way or the other will provide my informed book review. - Vigilis

Sub Culinary Specialist 2nd Class to Miss His Boat's Reunion 
Sentenced in January Defense attorneys had argued  post-traumatic stress disorder from his 5 years of living on a submarine*.
Perhaps we can guess why he did not make the Navy a career (drunken stabbing fatal, life sentence).

Submarines are always silent and strange.
