    Another fantastic book from Stephen Coonts. Gripping. Even though it's fiction, it made me wonder about if this could really happen. I had a hard time putting down the book.

    Stephen Coonts is one of my favorite authors. He takes some elements of reality (in this case, a nuclear middle-east), and writes a believable fiction novel. I'm not a voracious reader, but when it comes to books like "The Disciple", I just wanted to keep reading it and had a hard time putting it down. I HIGHLY recommend it to anyone. All Stephen Coonts fans will love it (of course.)

    One of Coonts' Best Ever!!

    I usually laugh when a reviewer says a book is a page turner, but this one really was. I stayed up to 2AM last night cause I wanted to know how this exciting read ended. I rate it up there with Clancy's Red Storm Rising in terms of great political/military stories. And, as an ex-fighter pilot, I trully enjoyed his MIG-29/F-22 aerial engagement. If only the real-world Iranian situation could end this way!!

    I Also Recommend:

    Pulse-pounding excitement. Thoroughly entertaining.

    Boy was this book fun to read. At one point, I actually caught myself chuckling out loud to ease the tension, when hero Tommy Carmellini finds himself in a particularly nasty pickle. Now thats good story telling! In the Disciple, Mr. Coonts has assembled a great cast of characters and tossed them into a gripping plot involving Iran and nuclear arms. A thrill ride, start to finish.

    Another Coonts Blockbuster

    Stephen Coonts hits another one out of the ballpark with his Tommy Carmellini series. Action packed and well written. Once you start reading it, it's hard to put it down.

    This is a tense thriller

    CIA Middle Eastern Operations chief Jake Grafton assigns his top operative Tommy Carmellini to work inside Iran as there is fear that maniacal fundamentalist President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad is close to having his finger on a nuclear trigger. The Iranian leader wants a holy war to the death with the west and he believes his side will win.

    As Tommy watches and gathers information, he has Iranians supporting him; many fear Ahmadinejad's legacy will be a stone age Iran. While Israel considers bombing Iran's nuclear sites as it did Syria, Tommy's efforts and that of his associates and his boss fail to prevent the madman from firing missiles throughout the Middle East under the guise of martyrdom. Tommy and Jake to try to deflect his assault of missiles, including some nuclear, that Iran has fired in order to stop WW III from occurring.

    This is a tense thriller that places the stars of in what feels like a potentially realistic extrapolation of headline news with recent revelations re Iranian hidden nuclear developments. The story line is fast-paced starting with the opening sequence of the Israeli destruction of the Syrian nuclear plant as told to readers by a Russian adviser killed at the site and never slows down. Though obviously biased as the American heroes are hawk patriots (not the chicken hawk couch potato variety of send someone else); the action enables the reader to know who are allies and enemies as Stephen Coonts provides a super tale of vaporization while exposing Ahmadinejad's fanatical background that goes back to even before the fall of the Shah.
