Stephen Coonts' Deep Black: Sea of Terror

Deep Black (Volume 8)

Stephen Coonts and William H. Keith

St. Martin's Paperbacks


Two massive ships are on a dual path to destruction. One is a freighter carrying nuclear materials to Japan; the other, a cruise ship heading for the Mediterranean. Neither will reach their destinations. Two factions—Japanese eco-terrorists and Middle East extremists—have joined forces to infiltrate the ships, incapacitate the crew, and change course toward a common target:
The United States of America.

In Washington, Charlie Dean and a team of commandos are dispatched on a life-or-death mission to blow the hijackers' plot out of the water. Their plan: board the ship unnoticed, pose as ordinary passengers, and overtake the terrorists. But time is running out. The seized ships are crossing the Atlantic with the combined strength of a full-scale nuclear torpedo. And New York City is just on the horizon.…in Stephen Coonts' Deep Black: Sea of Terror, cowritten with William H. Keith.

"MY GOD, MITCHELL!" CHARLIE Dean said, shaking his head. "You have got to be freaking kidding!"
"You know better than that, Mr. Dean," Thomas Mitchell...

Praise for Stephen Coonts' Deep Black: Sea of Terror

“The action moves swiftly to its Hollywood ending.” —Publishers Weekly on THE ASSASSIN

“Excellent.” —Publishers Weekly (starred review) on THE TRAITOR

“Frighteningly realistic.” —Maxim on LIBERTY
