Liberty (Jake Grafton Series #10) by Stephen Coonts


Admiral Jake Grafton is working counter-terrorism in the wake of the September 11 attacks when Janos Illin--the highly placed Russian intelligence agent from AMERICA--delivers chilling news: a rogue general has sold four nuclear warheads to a radical Qaeda-affiliated terrorist faction. Smuggled out of Pakistan after a vicious firefight, the deadly weapons are believed to be headed for the United States. Taking the report to his superiors, Grafton is charged by the president with assembling a secret team and uncovering the plot before America's population centers are consumed in the flames of nuclear holocaust.

But with billions of dollars to be made in terrorism and counter-terrorism, a plot of this scale and sophistication draws investment from unlikely sources--some of these very close to home. And it soon becomes apparent that the Dark Age Jihadi terrorists are backed by a shadowy clique of tech-boom capitalists, disgruntled Cold Warriors, and money-grubbing traitors within America's intelligence community. They come from Russia, Egypt, and the United States. And whether they're in it because of lust for power, obsession with money, or all-consuming hatred, they are joined in a conspiracy so secret, so powerful, and so invisible that Grafton will need to mobilize every resource at his disposal to ensure the unthinkable does not become the inevitable . . . .

To that end, Grafton calls out his biggest guns, all familiar faces from previous Coonts bestsellers: the indomitable Toad Tarkington and CIA super-spy Tommy Carmellini. But he'll need more than that, and soon Grafton is reactivating old friends, contacts, and even enemies to form the most eliteanti-terrorist team in history. Now, incorporating the most advanced spying technology with know-how, guts, and determination, Grafton's team must do the impossible: uncover a s20conspiracy that threatens civilization and stop it!

Liberty is another fine military thriller from Stephen Coonts in which Islamic radicals purchase four nuclear weapons from a greedy Russian general with the intention of detonating them in the United States. Rear Admiral Jake Grafton returns, assigned to head the task force searching for the nukes. Coonts masterfully weaves together the various subplots and the wide cast of characters, including the usual cast from previous books, in a complex and action filled suspenseful story with doublecrosses, terrorists, spies, and traitors. This is certainly one of Coonts's best, though I still think The Red Horseman comes in first.

It is a good read but like most political thrillers it has it slow areas. I am enjoying the exploits of Adm. Jake Grafton I have read flight of the the intruder and enjoyed that it is nice to see that Jake struck it out and made Adm. Hope to see him sitting next to the president one day as a member of the joint chiefs of staff.

Great story, well researched and very close to home. Does a good job getting into the minds of the terrorists. Pretty frightening how easy something like this could happen.
