The Saucer by Stephan Coonts

This is from another old account of mine that I can't long onto.

 

Just finished this awesome book. It's definitely a favorite now. I love the way it was written. It kept me on my toes for sure. It takes a little time to get into and to memorize the characters, but all books are like that. I really loved it!!! I can't wait to buy the sequel and see what that is all about.

 

 

-------------------------------------------------------

Description: After 140,000 Years...
Seismic Surveyor Rip Cantrell has made an exhilarating discovery-a flying saucer embedded in the Sahara sandstone. Buried for eons, it's not the invention of modern man. Computer-equipped, it can't belong to ancient man. Rip's betting his life on the only alternative. If the ship's memory bank holds the proof he needs, it's going to rock civilization, and make Rip a very famous man.

Its Time Has Come.
Once the secret's out, Rip's outwitted by an enterprising billionaire set to steal the saucer's profitable technology-and outnumbered by the Libyan army looking to lay claim to history. But it's in a skeptical UFO investigation team that Rip finds an unlikely ally: test-pilot Charlotte Pine. Together, they come up with a plan to protect the saucer's secrets.

But Where In The World Is It Going?
Under a hail of bullets, in an exhaust of white fire, Rip and Charlotte are off. Accelerating on a fantastic journey across continents and oceans, they're about to experience the mystery of what once was, and explore the possibilities of what could be, on an adventure 140,000 years in the making.

Deep Black: Death Wave - Stephen Coonts;William H. Keith Jr. Islamic terrorists along with a rogue ex-Chinese military guy is planning a geological terrorist attack that will cause thousand foot high waves that will decimate the Eastern seaboard of the United States. Black ops agents Charlie Dean, Ilya Akulinin and Lia DeFrancesca are deployed to various European countries to locate the missing nuclear weapons that will be used in this attack.

This is an exciting book with a plot that in theory could actually work which makes it a thriller with nasty implications. I liked the characters of Charlie, Ilya and Lia. They have good morals and are what I think of when I picture military persons - doing the right thing regardless of the consequences to themselves.

This is the first book I've read by Stephen Coonts but I will definitely be reading more books in this series.

Clash of the Carriers: The True Story of the Marianas Turkey Shoot of World War II
Clash of The Carriers: The True Story of the Marianas Turkey Shoot of World War II - Barrett Tillman,Stephen Coonts As Good as it gets in Narrative histories covering specific battles. Contains those little extra details that military history buffs eat up. Like:

Those coughing gouts of smoke when A propeller starts? A starter cartridge that fires to start the motor rotating.
or the delicate manuevers required when rescuing a downed pilot by submarine. (it's not as easy as you might think.)

If I had any quibbles it would be that Tillman occasionally uses military slang that he does not explain.
Just about perfect.
