Coming in January, 2006.
Silent Steel : The Mysterious Death of the Nuclear Attack Sub USS Scorpion (Hardcover) by Stephen Johnson.

"Johnson painstakingly details the last 18 months of the Cold War–era fast-attack nuclear submarine U.S.S. Scorpion, which disappeared with all hands on May 22, 1968, in the mid-Atlantic.....Was it a Soviet attack? Did one of the Scorpion's torpedoes accidentally detonate? Did its hull crack due to poor maintenance? Did its main storage battery explode? Mining navy documents and first-person testimony, Johnson's deeply researched effort explores these and other possible explanations, but concludes that the ship's end will remain an enigma".

I'm glad he looks at all angles instead of the tired conspiracy garbage that has been done ad nauseum.
