Final Flight: Jake Grafton, Book 3 | [Stephen Coonts]

Final Flight: Jake Grafton, Book 3

After a particularly long cruise, the USS United States is in port in Naples, and her crew is enjoying its first liberty in months. But something's not right. Several crew members have not reported back from their leave, and a beautiful American reporter who boarded the United States in Tangiers may not be a reporter, or even an American. When one of Jake's men, in a hotel in Naples, witnesses an assassination attempt led by this woman, Grafton realizes the situation is much more serious than he suspected.

Publisher's Summary

After a particularly long cruise, the USS United States is in port in Naples, and her crew is enjoying its first liberty in months. But something's not right. Several crew members have not reported back from their leave, and a beautiful American reporter who boarded the United States in Tangiers may not be a reporter, or even an American. When one of Jake's men, in a hotel in Naples, witnesses an assassination attempt led by this woman, Grafton realizes the situation is much more serious than he suspected.

What he doesn't know is that Colonel Qazi, an international terrorist, plans to board the United States and steal six nuclear weapons from her heavily guarded arsenal. Nor does he know that the plot is being financed by El Hakim, the power-hungry leader of an oil-rich Arab state. And most important, he doesn't know that he, Jake, past 40 and recently grounded by night blindness, is the only one who can stop Qazi, in one man-to-man aerial dogfight - one "final flight".

    "CAG Tour"

    Spine tingling? Maybe? It was one hellova good Navy book. From the boring administrative details of Navy life, to the smashing conclusion; the book was a fun read. And, as always with a Coonts novel, our hero saves the world for democracy and the American way.

    Any additional comments?

    Very upset with Coonts as to the prolific foul language, which is new for him, and the way the story ends. There are several "Jake Grafton" books that come after this one and they are all very good reads. Wonderful story and edge of your seat action ruined by language and porn.

    Story
    "Newly released originalbook."

    I find it interesting that a number of authors are bringing some of their earliest publication into the digital age. This is one of them. Grafton is still a leutenant fighter pilot in this 1996 book.It is a fun read and fills in some of his early history. The narration was Excellent. The ending was AWFUL. Coonts doesn't even hint at their being more to come in the Grafton series. Unless I missed something, This read like a stand alone book

    "Empty"
    This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

    Patient readers


    What was most disappointing about Stephen Coonts’s story?

    Empty, defeated


    Would you be willing to try another one of Benjamin L. Darcie’s performances?

    No, he has too soft a voice for a military jet pilot.


    What character would you cut from Final Flight?

    The confused Arab


    Any additional comments?

    No thanks to the combo.
