Über diesen Titel
A team of surveyors working in the Sahara happen upon an object buried deep in the rock. The object turns out to be a flying saucer and it is older than the rock it is buried in - 140,000 years old at least. Rip, a student working with the team, is keen to find out as much about the flying saucer as possible. But so are many other people, including the US Military, a team working for a billionaire Australian businessman and a group of Arabs. Rip foils their attempts to commandeer the craft with the help of a disillusioned female pilot called Charley. Together they steal the saucer and Charley takes them both into orbit. Rip's plan is to take the saucer to his uncle's Missouri farm - but first he has to avoid being tracked down by everyone else.From the Inside Flap:
Praise for the novels of Stephen Coonts
"The master of the techno-thriller spins a bone-chilling worst-case scenario involving international spies, military heroics, conniving politicians, devious agencies, a hijacked nuclear sub, lethal computer hackers, currency speculators, maniac moguls and greedy mercenaries that rivals Clancy for fiction-as-realism and Cussler for spirited action... [Coonts] never lets up with heart-racing jet/missile combat, suspenseful submarine maneuvers and doomsday scenarios that feel only too real, providing real food for thought in his dramatization of the missile-shield debate."-Publishers Weekly (starred review)
"Fans of Coonts and his hero Grafton will love it. Great fun."-Library Journal
"Coonts's action and the techno-talk are as gripping as ever."-Kirkus Reviews
"Thrilling roller-coaster action. Give a hearty welcome back to Adm. Jake Grafton." -The Philadelphia Inquirer
"The author gives us superior suspense with a great cast of made-up characters...But the best thing about this book is Coonts's scenario for turning China into a democracy."
--Liz Smith, The New York Post
"A high-octane blend of techno-wizardry [and] ultraviolence...[Coonts] skillfully captures the postmodern flavor of Hong Kong, where a cell phone is as apt as an AK-47 to be a revolutionary weapon."-USA Today
"Will be enjoyed by Coonts's many fans...Coonts has perfected the art of the high-tech adventure story."-Library Journal
"Coonts does a remarkable job of capturing the mood of clashing cultures in Hong Kong."
"Filled with action, intrigue, and humanity."-San Jose Mercury News
"Move over Clancy, readers know they can count on Coonts."-Midwest Book Review
"Enough Tomahawk missiles, stealth bombers, and staccato action to satisfy [Coonts's] most demanding fans." -USA Today
"[A] gripping and intelligent thriller."-Publishers Weekly (starred review)
"Perhaps the best of Stephen Coonts's six novels about modern warfare."
"Coonts delivers some of his best gung-ho suspense writing yet."-Kirkus Reviews
"Dramatic, diverting action...Coonts delivers."--Booklist
Fortunes of War
"[Coonts] is a natural storyteller [with] a rare gift...Fortunes of War is crammed with a action, suspense, and characters with more than the usual one dimension found in these books.--USA Today
"A stirring examination of courage, compassion, and profound nobility of military professionals under fire. Coonts's best yet."-Kirkus Reviews (starred review)
"Full of action and suspense...a strong addition to the genre." -Publishers Weekly
Flight of the Intruder
"Extraordinary! Once you start reading, you won't want to stop!"-Tom Clancy
"Coonts knows how to write and build suspense...this is the mark of a natural storyteller."
--The New York Times Book Review
"[Coonts's] gripping, first-person narration of aerial combat is the best I've ever read. Once begun, this book cannot be laid aside."-The Wall Street Journal
"Kept me strapped in the cockpit of the author's imagination for a down-and-dirty novel."
-St. Louis Post-Dispatch
