Overview

Fighter-jock Jake Grafton has survived his share of airborne death duels. Now he's grounded. As head of the top-secret Athena Project, he's now in charge of developing the navy's next-generation attack aircraft-a carrier-launched stealth version of the A-6 Intruder. But deep within the labyrinth of the Pentagon, a cunning Soviet network is trashing U.S. security. Behind it is the ultimate spymaster called The Minotaur: his sights are on Jake's aircraft...and his plans are for one last kill.

Editorial Reviews

Newgate Callendar
The flying episodes ring true. There are also a few things not normally encountered in his books...it makes one think.
Publishers Weekly - Publisher's Weekly
Navy Captain Jake Grafton develops an aircraft known as the Minotaur using Stealth technology and deals with a Defense Department information leak in this techno-thriller. PW commented, ``Coonts is most compelling when he focuses on the politics of design and procurement; his comparisons of Navy and Air Force procedures are admirably sharp-edged.'' (Oct.)

Tom Clancy
Stephen Coonts, like Jake Grafton, just keeps getting better.
W E. B. Griffin
Thrilling, more than a little frightening, and clearly his best work yet!
