Summary

The Chinese dragon is flexing its muscles. As its military begins to prey on neighbors in the South China Sea, attacking fishing vessels and scheming to seize natural resources, the US goes on high alert. But a far more ominous danger lurks closer to home: a Chinese sleeper cell has planted a nuclear weapon in the harbor at Norfolk, Virginia, the biggest naval base on the planet. The target: a secret rendezvous of the Atlantic Fleet aircraft carriers and their battle groups.
When the CIA director is assassinated and Jake Grafton is appointed to take his place, he gets wind of the conspiracy, but has no idea when or where the attack will occur. In the meantime, a series of assassinations, including an attempt on the life of the President, shake the country and deliberately mask a far more sinister objective. Can Jake Grafton and his right hand man, Tommy Carmellini, stop the plot to destroy the US Navy?

Drearily average

If Frederick Forsyth is the Rolls Royce of thrillers and Tom Clancy and Tom Wood are BMWs, this is definitely a Ford Mondeo. Plot is mildly interesting but the execution/wordplay is predictable and average, the characterisation bland. The narrator is OK but not exceptional so unable to elevate the source material. I listened to the end but zoned out frequently. Listen to if you have time on your hands but there are better books out there.

Ripped from Tomorrow's headlines!

Plausible story with great audio narration. I especially enjoyed Eric Dove's reading of this book.

Remarkable, fantastic espionage thriller

At age 70 author Stephen Coonts is getting better! His two releases this year are his best novels ever and are on par with the very best of the espionage thriller genre. First there was this novel The Art of War then Liberty's Last Stand. Both are in the Tommy Carmellini series. The suspense is intense and sustained. Narration Eric G Dove matches the high quality of the novel. I VERY HIGHLY RECOMMEND this novel!
