Product Description


“The action moves swiftly to its Hollywood ending.” ―Publishers Weekly on THE ASSASSIN

“In bestseller Coonts's assured new international thriller, Tommy Carmellini, the sardonic, laid-back CIA agent who became a star in 2004's Liars and Thieves gets a shot at the big time.” ―Publishers Weekly on THE TRAITOR

“Vintage Coonts...plenty of action and intrigue, with the added benefit of a new lead character.” ―Dallas Morning News on THE TRAITOR

“Excellent.” ―Publishers Weekly (starred review) on THE TRAITOR

“Frighteningly realistic.” ―Maxim on LIBERTY

“Gripping…Coonts's naval background and his legal education bring considerable authority to the story, and the narrative is loaded with detailed information about terrorist networks, modern weaponry, and international intrigue…the action is slam-bang.” ―Publishers Weekly on LIBERTY

Product Description

Two massive ships are on a dual path to destruction. One is a freighter carrying nuclear materials to Japan; the other, a cruise ship heading for the Mediterranean. Neither will reach their destinations. Two factions—Japanese eco-terrorists and Middle East extremists—have joined forces to infiltrate the ships, incapacitate the crew, and change course toward a common target:
The United States of America.

In Washington, Charlie Dean and a team of commandos are dispatched on a life-or-death mission to blow the hijackers' plot out of the water. Their plan: board the ship unnoticed, pose as ordinary passengers, and overtake the terrorists. But time is running out. The seized ships are crossing the Atlantic with the combined strength of a full-scale nuclear torpedo. And New York City is just on the horizon.…

HASH(0xa234da38) out of 5 stars Would have been better if... March 7 2010
By M. Renlund - Published on
Format: Mass Market Paperback
the main characters from the other books had been in this one.

I have enjoyed reading about Charlie and Lia's exploits around the world, the high tech gear they use, and the people who support them. All the way from the first book of the series have I followed them. I was excited for a new "chapter" in their story.

Unfortunately for me, the main characters I know and love are largely absent from this book's pages. More time is spent setting up the story, and then bolstering the story than is spent following Charlie trying to end the crisis. Lia seems to only be in as an afterthought.

There just seemed to be little to no real imagination in the writing. Plot lines were obvious, and it didn't have the feel of a techno-thriller.

There were a few great moments, but that was about it. It just wasn't worth my time in the final analysis.

HASH(0xa157e954) out of 5 stars Where is Jim DeFilice? April 18 2010
By George N. Lawrence - Published on
Format: Mass Market Paperback
The first six of the Deep Black series with coauthor Jim DeFilce were great: full of action and the repeating zaney characters. With coauthor William Keith the beautiful but ill-tempered Lia DeFrancesca has all but disappeared. Charlie Dean mostly shows up at the end to shoot a few people. Rubin does have a small part, but not a particularly interesting one. And horror of horrors Coonts and Keith have killed off the loveable jokester Tommy Karr in their first collaboration Artic Gold--also a disappointment.

My advice is stick with the first six with Jim DeFilce who has injected energy and entertaining character development with other authors including Richard Marchinko, Larry Bond, and Dale Brown. He is also good on his own, for example Warbreaker.

I am not buying another Coonts/Keith collaboration.

HASH(0xa37252b8) out of 5 stars Cross "Airport" with the Achille Lauro incident and it might sound like this May 27 2012
By Daniel Berger - Published on
Format: Mass Market Paperback
I never don't like a Deep Black novel and this one is no exception.

Jihadi terrorists simultaneously hijack a British cruise liner and a nearby freighter loaded with reprocessed plutonium headed for Japan. What their goal is isn't clear, but you know it's got to be horrible.

So, it's a little bit "Airport" and a little bit "The Love Boat" crossed with the real-life Achille Lauro cruise ship hijacking of the 1980s, in which the elderly, wheelchair-bound Leon Klinghoffer was shot and dumped over the side.

This is a high-tech ship, with every passenger trackable from the microchip in their bracelets, every inch of ship monitored by cameras -- and the whole system accessible through a ship's security officer extorted by a kidnapping.

The good guys have a couple of people aboard -- two MI-5 agents investigating a murder back at the harbor, and a British agent seconded to NSA's Deep Black team who is on board, posing as a tourist, to help NSA penetrate its system. They do their best to suss out what's going on and report back without getting caught.

Meanwhile the cruise features the estranged couple trying to get back together, the prima donna rock star whose reckless lifestyle a la Spears and Lohan has a TV news crew in tow waiting for her to melt down, her diva-weary manager, a group of old lady tourists, the ship security officer on the make -- the usual disaster-film ensemble. One feature player: a robot named Rosie who can not only deal cards in the ship's casino, but banter and flirt with the customers as well.

NSA's William Rubens wants to put Deep Black's new Black Cat commando team into play. But he's stymied on one side of the Atlantic by an egotistical British general who wants to lead and get the glory, and on the other side by a U.S. president happy to let them so that he can avoid risks as he harvests the PR value of Ending Bush's Horrible Genocidal War in Iraq to signal a happy new age of American moderation in the Middle East.

Rubens, seeing a disaster in the making and knowing meanwhile the unique value his all-penetrating communications can contribute to any raid, must gamble on getting Charlie Dean and the new Black Cat team into place to help free the cruise ship without killing thousands of passengers and maybe contaminating the entire East Coast.

The technology as usual is up to the minute, plus all the inside intelligence poop presumably true or close to it. Does the U.S. really have a secret Mach 6 spy plane that flies at the edge of space taking pictures with far better resolution than even spy satellites can?

I particularly like the scene where the commandos do a high altitude parachute drop over the North Atlantic at night to hit the cruise ship. Totally bad-ass.

Deep Black books should be about the team. I think this book was altered to include a few deep black characters so it could be marketed as a deep black novel. The deep black members are hardly recognizable, and they are why I follow this series. Mr. Keith has sadly ruined a good series.

HASH(0xa0f93a74) out of 5 stars Disappointed in the South March 20 2010
By Walter J. Worsham - Published on
Format: Mass Market Paperback
This was a very disappointing read. All previous Deep Black novels have been full of action. It was a struggle to get through the first three quarters of this tale. It ended well with Charlie finally getting into some action. This one suffers from TMI and not enough action.
