I was a little disappointed in this book, beginning with the fact that it was three stories in one. I usually enjoy Coonts immensely but not this time. The stories were short and really didn't do anything for the reader. It was like having a beginning and a short ending and the rest of the book was missing. Coonts needs to stick to what he does best, and this isn't it.

WARNING: this book is composed of three novellas. All three are a decade or so old, and have been published in other venues--collections of short stories, etc. I quickly realized after starting in on the first one that it was very familiar, and checked the publishing info in the front of the book. Yep originally published in 2003 (other included novellas were published in 1999 and 2001). Won't matter if you haven't read much of his other stuff, but beware if you have and are purchasing this book so you aren't buying something you've already read. And the quality is well below many of his other books--more along the lines of "Saucer" than "Flight of the Intruder".

I like Coonts but this was a total waste of money. Go find a good Clive Cussler novel. Better still, read something by Neville Shute. Great writer.

Read every Stephen Coonts books and could not wait for the next one until now. Found that the book contains only 150 pages of uncharacteristic poorly written novellas. Waste of $11.99and will deter me from buying any more Coonts books. Also, a reminder to myself to be very careful when purchasing ebooks. Read the reviews and comments in detail. I wouldn’t have purchased this book if I had realized it’s format and brevity.

Stephen Coonts can do better than this, do not waste $11.99 on this book. Giving it one star is genereous
