Overview

RECRUITED:
A crack team of cover agents.
Word is out to ex-Marine sniper Charlie Dean and his team of the National Security Agency: Infiltrate the highest stratum of Peruvian political power and derail a renegade general from acing an election. All Dean has to do is find a way inside an impenetrable bank vault protected by armed guards round the clock-it's all in a day's work for the men and women of Deep Black.

ENGAGED:
A violent political coup
But things get complicated when Dean and company discover the renegade general's second plot. The military madman's ruse--a nuclear weapon he claims is in the hands of Marxist guerillas, a bomb that only he can rescue…and control.

IGNITED:
A devastating terrorist plot.
When the general and his plot are exposed, the NSA concludes the greatest threat is over. But in fact, it's only just beginning…

Editorial Reviews

Maxim on Liberty

Frighteningly realistic.
USA Today on Hong Kong

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.
The New York Times Book Review on Flight of the Intruder

Coonts knows how to write and build suspense. . . this is the mark of a natural storyteller
Library Journal
Terrorism and a plot to assassinate the president drives the fourth novel in this collaborative, action-packed series. Read by J. Charles. Simultaneous with St. Martin's original mass market paperback. Copyright 2005 Reed Business Information.

AFTER many, many attempts to get the new " upgrade" on my Nook for Android to work, it still is screwed up. Can't read any of the books I've bought. I've had to buy everything again on Kindle. BN doesn't seem to care enough to respond.

Of thefour I've read in this series, this is the least thrilling, but still enjoyable. The editor needs to correct the many typos and misspellings in these books. It is the worst I have ever seen and can make reading them a real challenge!

While the story line and plot were interesting and a good summer read, the digital preparation (or lack thereof)were very distracting. Almost every paragraph had errors in spelling, hyphens, etc. Looks like the editors had the day off when this went through.

Peruvian general Tecume has concocted a brilliant plan to not only obtain a nuclear weapon, but to bluff the Americans into going after insurgents his outcome is to become the president of Peru. ............... Crippled Stephan Babin owes a lot of people. He is in debt to Tecume for saving his life so is assisting him with his nuclear ploy. However, he hides from the General that his personal agenda is to take the nuclear option one step beyond his Peruvian host. He plans to avenge what the CIA did to him, when they shot down his plane leaving him crippled................. NSA assigns the Deep Black team headed by Charlie Dean to stop the General. The crack squad aided from thousand miles away by their Runner Rockman begin a counter ploy to keep nuclear weapons out of the hands of Tecume and local terrorists, but neither Charlie, his teammate Lia DeFransccesa, nor the home office are aware that the real threat comes from the more dangerous opponent Steve Babin who has armed his host with a second bomb unbeknownst to the Deep Black squad or any American intelligence agency................. The fourth Deep Black adventure thriller is an intriguing tale because just when the team and readers think the case is solved in spite of plenty pages to go, the plot offers a delightful exhilarating twist that ratchets up the suspense levels. The story line is loaded with testosterone action even when the females like Lia take charge. Fans of the series or anyone who appreciates a black ops antiterrorism thriller will receive plenty of positive payback from this adrenaline pumping tale that goes at one speed faster than light.............
