Overview

Dr. James Kegan, a world-renowned scientist specializing in germ warfare, has vanished from his upstate New York home. But this is no ordinary missing-persons case. Kegan has left behind an unidentified dead man with a .22 caliber hole in his skull-and a contact trail that leads to an alleged terrorist cell. Unraveling the mystery is a job for Kegan's best friend, NSA operative Charlie Dean. His mission is to infiltrate the scientist's circle of associates and decipher Kegan's confidential research. Dispatched to cover Charlie is Delta Force trooper Lia Francesca. The trail leads them to the core of a widespread killer fever that's been dormant for centuries-and its link to a virus that's quickly spreading victim by victim. With time running out Charlie and Lia must find Kegan, uncover his secrets, cut a terrorist threat to the quick, and stop the imaginable outbreak of a new biological nightmare.

Editorial Reviews

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.

    Terrible Digital Conversion

    Solid read but the digital conversion is rife with miss-spellings. If you buy this book you must reprogram die and the in your mind and enjoy sifting through various word jumbles as you read

    Don't bother with the e-book version.

    Way too many typographical errors made this book nearly unreadable in e-book format. I was a fan of the Nook, but now I hesitate to buy e-books at all. Why should I pay the same price as a paperback for a good novel that has been butchered by the creation of an e-book version? The word "the" is not spelled "die". the word "I'm" is not "Fm". These are just two of the most common examples. There is also missing punctuation that destroys the flow of the story. Stephen Coonts would be livid if he saw what was done to his work.

    Good series so far

    I'm liking this series and plan to get the rest. The major characters have individual traits and act according to their nature. As mentioned in an earlier review the Nook formatting (or copyediting) needs cleaning up as the mistakes stop your reading and kept throwing me out of the story. I hope the other books in this series have better editing.

    I Also Recommend:

    Not bad, not great, good to read only to keep on track with the series

    This book is a little weak. The end seemed to be a little anticlimactic. This (#2) isn't as good as the first Deep Black (#1), or the Deep Black: Payback (#4), (I accidently skipped the third book) but is probably good to read only if you want to keep the series in order. I haven't read the third book, so I don't know how relevant this book is to that one, but I've just completed the fourth book, and that does make some references to prior events in the story line, that were not in the first or the second (implying the importance of reading them all, and in order).

    A READING TO MAKE LISTENERS' EARS SIZZLE

    Today techno-thrillers are at the top of the heap and Coonts plus DeFelice pen them with the best. Add a triple threat voice performance by veteran actor J. Charles and you have a reading that'll make listeners' ears sizzle. Gone - just plain disappeared. A famous scientist who knows all about germ warfare, Dr. James Kegan, has simply vanished from his New York State home. However, he did leave something behind - the body of a dead man with a hole between the eyes. The dead man's gone but not forgotten as he can be traced to a terrorist cell. Enter Kegan's best bud NSA operative Charles Dean who has been assigned quite a task: ingratiate himself with Kegan's associates, translate the scientist's research into an understandable form. Further Dean must do this in no time flat as there's an old killer fever spreading, killing people one by one. What do we have? A terrorist threat and biological warfare. Enough to set anyone's pulse pounding. Give a listen and see. - Gail Cooke

    A chilling thriller

    Charles Dean pays a surprise visit to his friend Dr. James Kegan only to find the body of a young Asiatic male lying dead in his home and his buddy nowhere to be found. Dr. Kegan has worked with viruses and bacteria that could be made into weapons so a concerned Charles calls Desk Three, the super high tech covert force. The director is sufficiently worried so he sends Charlie to a scientific conference that Dr. Keegan was supposed to attend..................................... Once there he is kidnapped and sent to Austria where some terrorists demand that he hand over the antidote. It seems Charlie¿s friend developed a disease that resembles rat-bite fever that is resistant to penicillin. A second team is sent to Thailand where Dr. Kegan was studying plants indigenous to the area. The weapon has been sold to two countries that could use it as a weapon against the U.S. They must destroy the weapons that are in the hands of the terrorists and find an antidote before the disease gets loose in the general population........................... Stephen Coonts and Jim De Felice have created a techno thriller that starts off fast and by the end of the book is moving at the speed of light. Although there is plenty of action with agents using high-tech gadgets, the major question that permeates the whole book is why did Dr. Kegan, a good man by all accords, create this weapon and where is he holed up. This mystery within a thriller is a prime reason that Stephen Coonts always has his reader¿s coming back for the next book he writes............................... Harriet Klausner
