The authors manage to eloquently bundle: the Coonts and Keith take international espionage and terrorism to a whole, new level. The authors manage to eloquently bundle: the murder of a best-selling author, the smuggling of a Russian love-interest, and seismic activity off the coast of Morocco into a compelling shoot-em-up fast-paced intrigue.
The story has all the elements of a best-selling thriller. The bad guys are Islamic extremists, collaborating with Russians and Chinese. The good guys are Americans: some naturalized Russians, some white-collar beltway types, and ex- military. Love and honor underpin the psyche of our heroes while worldwide domination and economic greed spur our antagonists. Anything for your country, right?

A dozen suitcase nukes are being strategically planted to cause a megatsunami that will cripple the USA, unite muslims, and give China world economic domination. Good guys. Bad guys. Every munition, every aircraft, spies you've heard of, spies you haven't. Politics and romance. A fast read. Crazy but enjoyable. I somehow missed this when it first came out, but it is a very good story with a premise I seriously doubt, but the technology and military action track quite well. Counts delivers again!

This was a bit slow towards the beginning on the book. Good read! This had some very exciting episodes in it and an interesting cast of characters.

Really enjoyed listening to it. Keith is the ninth book in the Deep Black military fiction series. They have come to Tajikistan to locate twelve suitcase nuclear weapons, as well as figure out the targets for the use of the weapons. Even though the action jumps around, Coonts and Keith have a header informing us of the location and the time in which the following section is taking place.

This ensures that you can easily keep track of where the action is and you never feel lost. Field agents in the Deep Black series are in almost constant contact with their handlers at Desk Three via transceivers imbedded behind their ears. This means that the agents always have help and extra information about a situation, and we are privy to this information.
In some ways it lessens the suspense because you know the agents have access to help and people generally know where they are and what they are encountering. Actually, I didn't feel any nail-biting suspense until the very end of the novel. While I like action adventure thrillers, I'm not sure if military fiction is, in general, as interesting to me. I will say that even though I have not read the previous books in the series, I was easily able to follow the action and the characters.
I guess I didn't care quite as much about all the little details of the mission. Recommended by me, but highly recommended for fans of military fiction. Sep 12, Burt rated it really liked it.
