Publisher's Summary

At the height of the Cold War, Captain Jake Grafton becomes entangled in the hunt for a spy selling high-tech military secrets to the Soviet Union. Naval pilot Jake Grafton flies fighter jets with ice water in his veins. But when he’s assigned a desk job in the Pentagon as the head of a top-secret stealth bomber program, his nerve is tested as never before. Colleagues die mysteriously, test flights are sabotaged, and the program is threatened at every level. America faces a deadly, catastrophic threat. If Grafton can’t infiltrate a web of espionage and counter-espionage centered round the deadly traitor, code-named the Minotaur, embedded in the highest reaches of the U.S. government, he stands to lose much more than just his career. The Minotaur is an exhilarating mixture of cutting-edge aviation, spies, and counter-spies, all set in the complex world of military technology R&D. In this unique espionage thriller written early in his career, Coonts’s extraordinary talent is brilliantly displayed.

Not very realistic. Except the normal corruption of Government Politicians, and Military/Industrial Complex Evil Crooks.

Boring, boring, boring

What would have made The Minotaur better?

don't know. Unless you are fascinated with the intricacies of Naval avionics and the detailed description of planes and their flying characteristics, this book is NOT for you. Way, way, way too much technical argot and discussion, not interesting to the layman.

What do you think your next listen will be?

won't be another Coonts.

How did the narrator detract from the book?

he was as boring as the story line.

Any additional comments?

Boring plot, boring characters, boring reader, not much more left.
