Publisher's Summary

The Iranian effort to develop nuclear weapons was the inspiration for this tale of spies, assassination, skullduggery, military action, and political intrigue.

Iranian president Mahmoud Ahmadinejad is the Devil's Disciple, and he has a plan. With 12 nuclear warheads mounted on 12 missiles, he will make Iran a martyr nation; then he will lead the world's Muslims in a holy war against Western civilization. It is up to Jake Grafton and Tommy Carmellini to save the world as we know it from the clutches of Islamic fascist fanatics.

As hot as today's headlines, The Disciple is Stephen Coonts at the top of his game. Spies, soldiers, scholars, fighter pilots, patriots, traitors, presidents, and ayatollahs are all here within the pages of The Disciple. Not since Cuba has Coonts written a novel as big and bold as this, a novel that catches the dreams and aspirations of a nation.

    "another fine book from Coonts"

    Another fine book from Coonts. I found this book just as entertaining as I have all the Jake and Tommy adventures. Coonts has changed his style somewhat over the years and I like it. Of course his works are fiction and he can do what ever he wants but he has toned down the oh sure factor. The Disciple has just the right amount of wait a minute this might happen in it.

    "A Big Disappointment"

    The book itself is in keeping with the rest of the Jake Grafton and Michael Carmolini series. The Narrator was terrible. It was hard to get into the book. Why did you all mess with a winning combination of story line and important narrator. the Narrator took a good book and made it terrible!!!

    "Wooden Narrator"

    The story's good, but the narrator is wooden. The other narrator for this series is much better.

    "Worst reader EVER."

    I am soooo disappointed in the choice of Eric G. Dove to read this book. His accents are aweful. His pronunciations are worse (ie. SABO is not the pronunciation of SABOT), he reads too slow.

    Dennis Boutsikaris IS Tommy Carmellini.

    If Eric G. Dove is continues to read for this series, then I for one will not be buying the next installment.

    "i thought it was great entertainment"

    Written with the usual grafton/carmellini interplay and wisecracks, several funny scenes, the Israelis who keep stealing tanks is especially funny, the ineptness of the iranian government types, etc. this could be a fictional version of near future events, (I HOPE)

    "Fan of Tommy? You will be dissappointed"

    This book can only loosly be called a Tommy Carmillini novel. Unilke the 3 pervious novels with Tommy, this one Tommy only makes a few token appearences. While the story is well written and the battles interesting, I like novels that also invest in and give lots of text to the lead character. This novel did not do that. And with less Tommy time, there was less humor and what their was, wasn't delivered as well by the reader. Since Liars & Thieves, The Traitor and The Assassin did provide lots of character time I found this novel and Pirate Alley dissappointing.

    "Very enjoyable"

    I Liked The Disciple (Unabridged) by Stephen Coonts. Perhaps this isn't his best work but I loved it. It is very realistic and could potentially happen, sooner than later. Well worth the download and time. I love Stephen Coonts' books.

    "The Narrator Ruined This Book"

    I adored prior Tommy Carmellini audiobooks so gladly bought this one, thinking a different narrator wouldn't matter. Boy was I wrong! This narrator is terrible. Getting through this book was like wading through hip deep peanut butter. If you liked the earlier Tommy C books, my recommendation is to purchase this one as a regular book and read it the old fashioned way. You'll enjoy it a LOT more.

    "What a difference a narrator makes, bad choice"
    Would you try another book from Stephen Coonts and/or Eric G. Dove?

    What a great series, until this book. After the first 3 books I couldn't wit for the 4th- I made it to the end, but this narrator is no match for the previous narrator. I won't listen to book #5. It's like Tommy had a lobotomy.


    Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Eric G. Dove?

    Dennis Boutsikaris

    Love to read and listen to books. I prefer detective stories, but also read some sci fi.

    "Not for Me"
    What did you like best about The Disciple? What did you like least?

    I did not care for this audiobook. It just was not my cup of tea. I tried to listen to it several times and would find myself daydreaming of thinking of other things. I do not think it is necessarily the writing, but my taste in books is not of this type.


    What could Stephen Coonts have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

    This book was somewhat borng to me. I would have liked to have been sitting up waiting for the next sentence. Did not find that here.
