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".

mixed emotions

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.

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.

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

Is this the End ?

I've grown accustom to having Jake around the corner ready for another adventure with HIS and TOAD'S hair on fire.
In stead when I heard the words " I'm sorry about Capt Graffton" by Judith Farrel I had to rewind and play it over again, couldn't believe it. It seems just wrong.
I have followed JG since Flight of the Intruder and was taken for a ride that quite frankly I never wanted it to stop. Some how I got out of sequence with the books so the time line has gotten confused.
I don't know how I feel about losing a good character, but Jake will be missed. I would like to see Toad carry the banner. Listening to these books allow a listener to become part of the story. I have enjoyed them all.......LZ

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.
