You might think twice about your cell phone addiction. It only takes a little paranoia to see how this scenario could happen. Just pray terrorists don't develop this capability!

This book was better in concept than execution. It's a fast read, and had a few chuckles, but not as good as I expected. Disappointing.

From the cover:

"It is dusk on July 17, 1996. A man and a woman who are married - but not to each other - make love on a Long Island beach as a video camera records their pleasure...and something more. Out over the ocean, TWA Flight 800 suddenly explodes with 230 victims on board, the terrible blast illuminating the sky. The government's verdict is mechanical failure. But the videotape may tell another story - if it can be found.
Now, on the fifth anniversary of the crash, two members of the Federal Anti-Terrorist Task Force set out to reopen the case: John Corey, and ex-NYPD detective, and his wife, Kate Mayfield, a career FBI agent. Together, they hunt for the crucial video...and race toward an elusive truth even more horrifying than the crash itself."

Review Date: 11/5/2005


Another of Coonts' adventures involving an undercover NSA team, this time pursuing a missing nuclear weapon during a threatened Peruvian coup. Brief chapters move the action along, following characters from earlier "Deep Black" stories. Stand alone as a good action read even if you haven't seen previous books.
