Overview

Deep Black by Stephen Coonts, Jim DeFelice, J. Charles

A spy plane gathering data on a new Russian weapon is blown out of the sky by a mysterious MiG. Is it an accident or the start of the next world war? One U.S. agency has what it takes to find out–the National Security Agency and its covert operations team: Deep Black.

Working for the NSA, ex-Marine sniper Charlie Dean is dispatched to Russia, hooking up with former Delta Force trooper Lia DeFrancesca to find out what happened to the plane. The Deep Black team stumbles across an even more alarming secret—a plot to assassinate the Russian president and overthrow the democratic government by force. The coup could have dire consequences for Russia and the world. With no clearance from the government it’s called on to protect, the National Security Agency goes to war. But before Lia and Dean can unravel the conspiracy, they learn that one of the spy plane’s passengers—an NSA techie—survived the crash. Critical information could fall into enemy hands. And that enemy is playing to the death.

“Coonts knows how to write and build suspense.” —The New York Times Book Review

Once I began reading, it was hard to put it down. Suspenceful and intriguing, made me want to solve the mystery of who was main person that was plotting the conspiracy.

The essence of the story is terrific! As Tom Clancy does, Coonts introduces his characters and various story line and then knits them together in a smashing conclusion. I am a great fan of military thrillers and this is a good one! Not being a military man/woman some of the technical information was a bit confusing to me but I read on and found I didn't require details of some of the technical info in order to get the plot. There are further books in this series and I favor a series with characters who repeat and Deep Black's characters are worth following on...

Wonder if Hank O actually READ the book. I found it a departure from Coonts' normal storytelling but quite exciting never-the-less. It's a book of fiction and fiction frequently takes us 'where no man has gone before' most of the time. While not as far out as Star Trek (not by any stretch) but I think Coonts has taken a lot of reality and peppered it with even more imagination. I read a wide variety of authors and this book only proves that Coonts is very capable of straying from his mainstream of authorship. This is talent in it's best form!

How many people wrote this piece of garbage? Find something else to read. Flat, uninteresting characters, characters that show up then disappear with no build up/down. The author(s) clearly do not know or understand military nomenclature and have not done their research on multiple areas of weapons and systems that the military uses. 1. No one in the military calls a firearm a "gun." One calls it a weapon whether it is an M-16, a 9mm Beretta, or a 155mm howitzer. Current attack helicopters do not include a Comanche. First of all that weapons system was cancelled and never deployed, secondly the Comanche was designed as a recon helicopter, not an attack aircraft. Yes it had a Gatling style gun mounted in its nose and the ability to carry missiles. All of which were for self defense. A CH-53D Super Stallion has two turbine engines not three. These are only a small sample of the mistakes that add to the poor writing and lack of character development. I was thinking of reading the other books in the series, but I think I will spend my money on real books.

It didn't seem the same high caliber as all the books I've read that he had authored before.

I read the first 150 pages and gave up. Hard to follow especially with the foreign words and abbreviations.

Have enjoyed Coonts books for several years because of the great characters. Since this is the first in a new series I would have liked more character development. If Dean is to carry this series, need to know what makes him tick.
