A group of Middle Easterns are smuggling something into a cruise ship full of three thousand passengers. They threaten a security guard to let thme in or else they will rape and kill his wife and daughter. The material they are smuggling in is plutonium, one of the deadliest substances known to man (one of its isostopes; if Reactor four in Fukushima explodes it will release plutonium into the atmosphere). There are a few NSA agents working on the ship, but they act as CIA agents because nobody h ...more

book on tape.
I enjoy the Charlie Dean and other ops and the desk people but they were not as prominent in this story. In the audio presentation the chapter ID by time, location, etc got very distracting, and turned irritating.
but I liked the finale.

Had trouble getting into this one as a little slow to start. But it got better at the end.

3/30/13 6 of 10 two ships are hijacked, exotic technology is subverted, lot of British & American agencies with three letter acronyms are involved, bad people kill several good people, the good guys prevail in the end. The action at the end is good, the plot logic less so. Not a bad read but not Coonts at his best either.
Desk Three intervenes in a terrorist plot to take over both a passenger liner and a ship carrying plutonium to Japan...AQ and Japanese radicals seemingly succeed until the intrepid heroes arrive..Desk Three must battle both on the sea and within the beltway...decent read!!!

One of the weaker entries in the series. Too much time is spent introducing passengers and crew on the cruise ship. The focus is more spread out than usual, with less focus on the Art Room team.
There. I think this is the last so far of this series. I enjoyed them, quick reads, usually predictable but fun for what they are.
I thought overall it was a good book. The one problem i had is there was no clear hero to root for. So not bad not great.

Not the best in the Deep Black series but still a good read.
