Overview

Pirate Alley (Tommy Carmellini Series #5) by Stephen Coonts, Eric G. Dove

Grafton and Carmellini are back, battling terrorists on the high seas alongside a top-notch team of Navy SEALs in an action-packed tale by New York Times bestselling author Stephen Coonts.

A luxurious vacation cruise to the exotic locales of the Red Sea and the Gulf of Aden turns into a nightmare for passengers and crew when their ship is suddenly attacked and captured by a band of bloodthirsty Somali pirates. An initial rescue mission ends in failure, and the decks are covered in blood. Unless they are paid a ransom of $200 million within seven days, the pirates threaten to execute all their hostages. But information gleaned from a captured Al Qaeda operative indicates that there is a far more dangerous conspiracy afoot.

Once the ransom is paid, Islamic militants intend to swoop in and slaughter the passengers in an orgy of terror, hoping to provoke a massive American military response that will set the Muslim world aflame. Jake Grafton is assigned to negotiate with the brutal pirate chief while his right-hand man, Tommy Carmellini, and a team of CIA and Navy SEAL operatives mount an undercover operation to save the hostages and keep the United States from being maneuvered into a murderous war.

This type of story has a predictable ending but Coonts does a great job of getting there. It rips the romance myth of piracy off of it's ugly face. It exposes that government will always put its political face first and incompetence hides behind the bold and skilled until it is safe to come out. In this story the outcomes is how it should be but it leaves a question of would it be?

I couldn't put it down! It slowed down a bit near the end, but still one of the best books i've read this year. I am now a Coonts fan. Definately recommend.

Good read if you want an action story about piracy. A lot of Special Forces action without going too over the top. I could just happen!

Coonts has done it again. This is a fantastic novel with plenty of action, bad guys you'll love to hate, and good guys to root for. A few unexpected twists, and that makes the novel that much better.

The book represents what the US should do to combat piracy on a regular basis. A clever way to defeat the bad guys. I am a big Coonts fan that started with 'Flight of the Intruder'.

This ripped from the headlines story is a great read. If you've never read Stephen Coonts this isn't a bad place to start. If you are a long time reader of Coonts you will enjoy seeing Jake Grafton takes a more active role in this novel. Fear not, Tommy Carmelinni is in the middle of the action and as sarcastic as ever. And if you've been wondering whatever happened to Toad Tarkingon he makes an apparence as well.

This was a real "page-turner" even on my Nook! I enjoyed this book so much that I bought another Stephen Coonts book when I finished it. The events in this fiction book could very well happen -- or at least most of them.

As usual, Stephen Coontz has written a novel that starts off innocently, and builds to a fine finish.

I am a huge Coonts fan, but this was not as good as most of his books. Lots of action, but needs a little bit more on character development. Ending was similiar to many of his others so it wasn't jaw dropping. Still, a fun read. Reads a lot like a screen play.

As with all of his work, I had trouble putting this one down. Started reading at 12:30 AM and finished the book at 6AM. Great read!
