The Chinese dragon is flexing its muscles. As its military begins to prey on neighbors in the South China Sea, attacking fishing vessels and scheming to seize natural resources, the US goes on high alert. But a far more ominous danger lurks closer to home: a Chinese sleeper cell has planted a nuclear weapon in the harbor at Norfolk, Virginia, the biggest naval base on the planet. The target: a secret rendezvous of the Atlantic Fleet aircraft carriers and their battle groups.
When the CIA director is assassinated and Jake Grafton is appointed to take his place, he gets wind of the conspiracy, but has no idea when or where the attack will occur. In the meantime, a series of assassinations, including an attempt on the life of the President, shake the country and deliberately mask a far more sinister objective. Can Jake Grafton and his right hand man, Tommy Carmellini, stop the plot to destroy the US Navy?

another well done story with some of the best characters! series much better if listened Robin order starting with Jake Grafton series...
As I listen to these stories I realized that I miss the interaction between Jake and Toad. TOAD'S ROBIN TO JAKE'S BATMAN'S. I'm hoping that Tommy's Witt will come to past. Toad is like a younger brother. Smart, mouthy, sly, irreverent, and just plain KOOL. LZ - a fan
Yes, it was an enjoyable journey.
Flight of the intruder--- read and enjoyed years ago.
Excellent job with all characters.
Made in China.
Everything I've come to expect from Stephen Coonts. Nothing like a good story about Tommy Carmellini and Jake Grafton. I love the detail, not too much but enough I can picture every moment as if I were there. The narrator really brings the book to life, probably my favorite and hope he continues to narrate every book in this series in the future.
Some authors get stale on a story line. Putting Grafton as a supporting character snd using Tommy C to tell the story brings new life into Coonts latest books.
Tt takes its time getting there but the wait is worthwhile.
Some of the characters are familiar. Some are new. It's a good plot. I would like to think that we would do as well as the folks herein. Perhaps we would . I hope we'll never find out.
