Stephen Coonts' Deep Blackby Stephen Coonts
Synopses & Reviews
New York Times Bestselling Author of America
A covert operations team must crack a deadly conspiracy--
as our way of life hangs in the balance...
Created by Stephen Coonts and Jim DeFelice
Written by Jim DeFelice
"[Coonts] is a natural storyteller [with] a rare gift."
Praise for the novels of Stephen Coonts
"A comic, feel-good SF adventure . . . [delivers] optimistic messages about humanity's ability to meet future challenges." -Kirkus Reviews
"Tough to put down." -Publishers Weekly
"The master of the techno-thriller spins a bone-chilling worst-case scenario involving international spies, military heroics, conniving politicians, devious agencies, a hijacked nuclear sub, lethal computer hackers, currency speculators, maniac moguls and greedy mercenaries that rivals Clancy for fiction-as-realism and Cussler for spirited action... [Coonts] never lets up with heart-racing jet/missile combat, suspenseful submarine maneuvers and doomsday scenarios that feel only too real, providing real food for thought in his dramatization of the missile-shield debate."-Publishers Weekly (starred review)
"Fans of Coonts and his hero Grafton will love it. Great fun."-Library Journal
"Coonts's action and the techno-talk are as gripping as ever."-Kirkus Reviews
"Thrilling roller-coaster action. Give a hearty welcome back to Adm. Jake Grafton."
-The Philadelphia Inquirer
ql"The author gives us superior suspense with a great cast of made-up characters...But the best thing about this book is Coonts's scenario for turning China into a democracy."
--Liz Smith, The New York Post
"A high-octane blend of techno-wizardry [and] ultraviolence...[Coonts] skillfully captures the postmodern flavor of Hong Kong, where a cell phone is as apt as an AK-47 to be a revolutionary weapon."-USA Today
"Will be enjoyed by Coonts's many fans...Coonts has perfected the art of the high-tech adventure story."-Library Journal
"Coonts does a remarkable job of capturing the mood of clashing cultures in Hong Kong."
"Filled with action, intrigue, and humanity."-San Jose Mercury News
First book of a new mass market thriller series that follows the men and women of the NSA on missions so secret that no government official will acknowledge their existence, and into spots so tight no tactician will admit their survivability. Advertising.
A spy plane gathering data on a new Russian weapon is blown out of the sky by a mysterious MiG. Is it an accident or the start of the next world war? One U.S. agency has what it takes to find out-the National Security Agency and its covert operations team: DEEP BLACK.
Working for the NSA, ex-Marine sniper Charlie Dean is dispatched to Russia, hooking up with former Delta Force trooper Lia DeFrancesca to find out what happened to the plane. The Deep Black team stumbles across an even more alarming secret-a plot to assassinate the Russian president and overthrow the democratic government by force. The coup could have dire consequences for Russia and the world. With no clearance from the government it's called on to protect, the National Security Agency goes to war. But before Lia and Dean can unravel the conspiracy, they learn that one of the spy plane's passengers-an NSA techie-survived the crash. Critical information could fall into enemy hands. And that enemy is playing to the death.
When a spy plane gathering data on a new Russian weapon is blown out of the sky, the National Security Agency sends its elite covert operations team, Deep Black, into the former Soviet Union to find out what happened--and to prevent the next world war. Original.
