Product Description



The action moves swiftly to its Hollywood ending.” —Publishers Weekly


 “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 LIARS & THIEVES

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

  Excellent.”—Publishers Weekly (starred review)


Frighteningly realistic.”—Maxim

“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


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.…

1.0 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.

1.0 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.

1.0 out of 5 stars A Fake April 26 2010
By Jerry - Published on
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
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.

1.0 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.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good but missing some key features July 12 2010
By J. Murray - Published on
Format:Mass Market Paperback|Verified Purchase
I love stories of how hi-tech gizmos solve crimes and this one, as well as all of Stephen Coonts' Deep Black series, does that. But, I've become attached to Deep Black's key characters, Lia and Charlie. They show up at the beginning wrapping up other jobs they're on, sporadically throughout for reasons almost unrelated to the main plot, and then Charlie arrives at the end to save the day. As a result, the brilliance of the plot suffers. It is Charlie and Lia who usually come up with creative solutions to impossible problems and in Sea of Terror, the bad guys win too often. I'm quite sure if Coonts had allowed Lia and Charlie to be more involved, the cruise ship would have been rescued much sooner.

The other issue that bothered me was that Coonts spent too much time on political machinations. I don't like political thrillers (with the exception of Advise and Consent). We have enough in the real world.

Despite all of this, I still gave it a 4 out of 5. A big reason is that there aren't that many good techno-thrillers on the market, so I saver each one. But my recommendation to Coonts is, stick with the characters you've developed in this series. They are why we buy the book.
