Great story about aircraft carrier operations.
Very well writen. Kept my attention from start to finish and I don't know anything about the Navy, ships or aircraft. Stephen Coonts nails it...
I've been reading the Jake Grafton series for quite a while, I really enjoy them. Actually gone back and re-read a couple recently as I wanted to be refreshed on the "history".
The Intruders is a fine followup to Flight of the Intruder, don't expect mind blowing twists in the plot but it is an exciting adventure novel none the less.
A Navy Pilot's life aboard an Aircraft Carrier. He's teaching a group of Marines how to aid in flights and they're a tough bunch. This gets so exciting that I dare you to put it down near the end. I couldn't. This book is different from any I've read and I want to read more of Stephen Coonts' books. I've just read one before this one. It has everything including romance,battles, air flights, and real information. Don't miss this one.
Another good book in the series. Lots of little interesting facts and just enough action to keep the story moving. I would recomend this book, even more so to readers who enjoy fiction that has a heavy base in facts.
I've read most of Coonts' work up to a certain point; if I like an author I have a tendency to buy everything he wrote and read them in the order written, so I have several of his books still unread. Next to his first work "Flight of the Intruder", this is my favorite. I have those two in hardcover and will probably read them again. I ran across this paperback version today while I was looking for something else (I have way too many books, both read and unread), and since it's a nice clean copy am offering it.
Being retired Air Force myself, I like books about flying, and enjoyed this one especially since it has a Marine Corps hook-up in it. My best friend for many years was a retired USMC regimental Sgt Major; he died three years ago, and I still really miss him.
I am a commercial pilot and loved the flying descriptions. The book got slightly technical on some of the descriptions.If I had not been a pilot,, it would have been hard to follow. Wonderful character of Jake Grafton - he is searching for his soul in a confused world.
