Overview

In the Arctic, two American intelligence operatives are kidnapped while investigating Russian submarines—a constant, covert presence beneath the ice caps. In Washington, ex-Marine Charlie Dean and his team at Desk Three trace the abduction back to the Russian mafiya, who have their sights set on the massive reserves of oil that lie thousands of feet below the ocean’s floor.

While Dean is sent to the Arctic to rescue the hostages, the beautiful Lia DeFrancesca penetrates a heavily guarded dacha on the shores of the Black Sea. Here she learns the explosive truth about Russia and its Arctic oil—one that could cost Dean and his Deep Black team their lives…and drive the world’s superpowers to the brink of war.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
“Coonts knows how to write and build suspense. . . a natural storyteller.”The New York Times Book Review

“The master of the techno-thriller.”—Publishers Weekly

Library Journal
The NSA ("No Such Agency") has a covert operations team, known as "Deep Black." While on a mission over Russia, their spy plane is shot down, and one of the NSA techno-geeks survives. Former Marine sniper Charlie Dean and former Delta operator Lia DeFrancesca are assigned to find the NSA operative. Along the way these two discover a plot to assassinate the president of the Russian Federation in a coup, and, well, the tale spins off from there. The story is fun-filled, with lots of gadgets, explosions, action, and a few twists, but the characters are somewhat predictable. J. Charles's performance is steady, and his experienced voice is nuanced. For public libraries.-Michael T. Fein, Central Virginia Community Coll., Lynchburg Copyright 2003 Reed Business Information.

    Disappointing!

    I have enjoyed the other books in this series. However, this one is not worth paying full price for. It is poorly written and very poorly edited. Without giving anything away, plot details are carelessly dropped or changed several times. I found myself going back and checking explanations when I remembered things differently, and I was right that they had changed. Examples. One character is traveling. Another character is in a meeting. Yet after it is established that the character is in the meeting, the character who is traveling is named as the one at the meeting. Also, the name of the environmental organization is changed midway through the book to that of an actual organization. I usually read these books in about two days, but it took me a week to get through. I am not sure if they were trying to end the series or not. I am not sure if there is a next book in the series I will read it.

    Spies, Environmentalists, and the Russian Mob

    I haven't read a Stephen Coonts' book in years, and after reading this one I have no doubt I will go back and read several I have missed. While the story and setting is nothing original or new, the writing is excellent for this genre. Treatement of the various environmental activist groups and a nefarious connection to the Russian mob is something I hadn't previous read, but for the most part it's a standard spy espionage thriller. Characters are developed well and multi-dimensional, the plot is interesting, and the speed at which things move keeps the reader engaged.

    A great series

    Enjoyed all the Deep Black series so far. This was the first one with few editorial oversights. Stephen Coonts makes an enjoyable read always.

    I Also Recommend:

    As all Cussler's books...a good read.

    Very enjoyable, I could hardly put it down. I have read all Cussler's books and still enjoy them as much as the first one I read.

    Without Value

    Poorly concieved and poorly written. A rip-off designed to make the reader think that Coonts had a part in writing it.
