Kurzbeschreibung

The thriller from New York Times bestselling thriller author Stephen Coonts—now available as an ebook


Jake Grafton races against time to extinguish a harrowing terrorist plot in Washington, D.C., and prevent all-out catastrophe from enveloping the nation
 
When the psychotic Colombian drug lord Chano Aldana is extradited to the United States for trial, he brings his army of vicious mercenaries with him. And as Aldana’s hit men target the President of the United States, the capital is plunged into chaos that only veteran fighter pilot Jake Grafton can stop.
 
With the help of an investigative journalist and an undercover agent, Grafton must find the deadly assassins before they can strike again. But time is running out, and the future of the country hangs in the balance. 
 
This ebook features an illustrated biography of Stephen Coonts, including rare photos from the author’s personal collection.

 

Synopsis

The war against the drug lords has exploded deep within the USA. Washington is under siege, held hostage by a foreign army that rules the streets. Jack Grafton, hero of the author's previous books, must hunt down an assassin and prevent the elimination of the President and the entire cabinet.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Good To See Mr. Coonts back on track 3. Februar 1997
Von Ein Kunde
Format:Taschenbuch
After the slight dissapointment of The Minotaur, I was glad to read Under Siege (and no, there's no relation to the movie of the same title), which had a firmly land-based plot
taking place in Washington, D.C. I like the creative way Coonts did the attacks on the U.S. government, the terrorists using tactics that just keep surprising you. After a while, I was thinking "Now there's an appropriate title for once!". The capital truly was under siege. Still not quite Coonts' best, but still a truly outstanding novel!!!

As a Tom Clancy fan, I was captivated by the story all the way through up to (almost) the end. It is a monumental and very believable story, with even some kindness for Dan Quale. (I wonder how the writer feels about our current C in C?) The events are riveting, and as far as I know, true to life, if but a slightly bit graphic on the violence. The story is well woven and crafted. I do feel, however, that it may be stretching credulity that a seasoned and naturally skillful hunter could know all the minute details involved in operating in beautiful (?) downtown Washington, D.C., and leaving almost no trail, paper or otherwise. I also find it hard to believe that a person who has operated in total cold calculation for several hundred pages would suddenly take a "pot shot" at someone who had annoyed him, and then after eluding troups in an outdoor setting, get bottled up in an empty sports stadium. Oh well, s___ does happen. And it all is believable and very entertaining for most of the book.
I guess that I feel that the writer had a tremendous story going, and somehow did not 'cash in' on the ending with all the potential he had carefully and artfully developed. I racked my brain for ideas as to how I would end it, and felt that the book would have needed several more chapters (on an already long work) to properly wind it up. We could have had the U.S. invading Columbia, and the Columbians retaliating by smuggling in a "made in Russia" nuke, and blasting Washington D.C. in a grand final bang Holocost, after which the rank and file citizens mount and win a tremendous war of revenge against that country. Or, we could have our hunter make an apparent clean escape to Columbia, only to be betrayed and murdered by the very people he was "servicing".
Anyway, because they don't let me give it a 4.5 star rating, I give it a 4. Good book. Well worth the money. Could be better.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Very feasible 29. Juli 1998
Format:Taschenbuch
In this gripping story, Colombian drug barons hire suicide commando squads and a trained assassin to take out President Bush. He is hospitalised after his helicopter is shot down, and Dan Quayle steps in to solve the growing problem . . . is that a worse nightmare than drug barons?! The leaders may be out of date now, but considering when this was written one can let Coonts get away with it. The action scenes, including the terrorists causing massacres in the Capitol and on the Washington Metro are first rate; there is always something interesting happening. Add to that political fumblings in the White House as Quayle can't cope(very true to life for its time) and a corrupt lawyer subplot, and you have a tale to rival the very similar 'Clear and Present Danger' by Tom Clancy. Only this one has less technobabble and Coonts once again relies on pacing and readability. Worth reading.

It's better than the movie and it's a nice pickup after the slowdown in The Minotaur. If you like action, THIS ONE'S A NON-STOP SLAM-BANG THAT DOESN'T QUIT WITH THE ACTION OR THE SUSPENSE!They shoot down the President's helicopter and basically declare a war on the leading politicians in DC. READ IT

Unbelievably good. It's not possible to fit this much action into a book. Stephen Coonts has done it again...
