Stephen Coonts is the author of eighteen New York Times bestselling books that have been translated and published around the world. A former naval aviator and Vietnam combat veteran, he is a graduate of West Virginia University and the University of Colorado School of Law. He lives in Colorado.From School Library Journal:
YA-- Several story lines intertwine to produce a contemporary, fast-paced political thriller. Jake Grafton, seen in Coonts's previous three novels, returns as a staff member for the chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff. He is joined by Jack Yocke, a Washington Post journalist, and Harrison R. Ford, an undercover agent, and the threesome assists the administration in rescuing Washington, D. C. from chaotic and horrifying circumstances that result when a Colombian drug lord and his gunmen arrive in this country for trial. While these events are unfolding, a hired assassin carries out an intricate plan to kill President Bush and several top officials. Coonts has readers' complete attention throughout this incredible, yet strangely believable, tale. There are many well-drawn characters in the sprawling story, and he does an excellent job of weaving together plot and participants.
