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.
Detonation hour is approaching.
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.
"Coonts knows how to write and build suspense. . . a natural storyteller." (The New York Times Book)

A great read. Perhaps his best ever
This is a superb book. I am a big fan of Coonts but would have enjoyed it even if I've never heard of him. It was a bit outside the previous deep black novels the way he handled communications. There was more focus on the overall situation than the individuals themselves. It is well done, thought out and researched, a real page turner! I couldn't put it down.

Worst Stephen Coonts book
The plot of this book is very complicated, with too many characters. The references to ship compartments and latitude/longitude coordinates require a chart to follow them. This kind of book does not good for audio.
The ending was disappointing.
