REVIEWS

Praise for Stephen Coonts' Deep Black: Sea of Terror

THE ASSASSIN

—Publishers Weekly LIARS & THIEVES

“Vintage Coonts...plenty of action and intrigue, with the added benefit of a new lead character.”
Dallas Morning News

  Excellent.”—Publishers Weekly (starred review)

LIBERTY

Frighteningly realistic.”—Maxim

“Gripping…Coonts’s naval background and his legal education bring considerable authority to the story, and the narrative is loaded with detailed information about terrorist networks, modern weaponry, and international intrigue…the action is slam-bang.”—Publishers Weekly
