    1. Deep Black: Sea of Terror ● by Stephen Coonts & William H. Keith Jr.Two massive ships are on a dual path to destruction.

Two factions—Japanese eco-terrorists and Middle East extremists—have joined forces to infiltrate the ships, incapacitate the crew, and change course toward a common target: The United States o [...]

    3. A group of Middle Easterns are smuggling something into a cruise ship full of three thousand passengers. They threaten a security guard to let thme in or else they will rape and kill his wife and daughter. The material they are smuggling in is plutonium, one of the deadliest substances known to man (one of its isostopes; if Reactor four in Fukushima explodes it will release plutonium into the atmosphere). There are a few NSA agents working on the ship, but they act as CIA agents because nobody h [...]

    4. I love stories of how hi-tech gizmos solve crimes and this one, as well as all of Stephen Coonts' Deep Black series, does that. But, I've become attached to Deep Black's key characters, Lia and Charlie. They show up at the beginning wrapping up other jobs they're on, sporadically throughout for reasons almost unrelated to the main plot, and then Charlie arrives at the end to save the day. As a result, the brilliance of the plot suffers. It is Charlie and Lia who usually come up with creative so [...]

    5. I would have given this book a 3.5 but system doesn't appear to let you give half-stars. (If someone can tell me how to do this, I would love to know. Thanks.)Terrorists take over both a cargo ship with nuclear material on it AND a cruise ship with 3000 passengers. Then the terrorists literally tie the nuclear ship to the cruise ship. What could go wrong? Very exciting but a little too much spy/politics stuff for me. Lots of talk about weapons that I didn't understand but terrific story that kep [...]

    6. This novel is in that genre of techno-thriller where good eventually prevails over evil. So in some respects, the authors just follow the norm for plot development of this sort. However, the use of and detailing of how government agencies may have developed electronic and human resources to combat evil is more chilling in its implications than the plot of "1984."All in all, this novel, much like others of the genre, is a fast paced, unpredictable roller coaster of a ride. I became so engrossed i [...]

    7. 3/30/13 6 of 10 two ships are hijacked, exotic technology is subverted, lot of British & American agencies with three letter acronyms are involved, bad people kill several good people, the good guys prevail in the end. The action at the end is good, the plot logic less so. Not a bad read but not Coonts at his best either.

    9. A nice change This, the latest in the series that I have read, was excellent. It also seemed a bit different from the earlier books, although it is hard to describe why, but it was a welcome change. Time to get the next book!

    10. book on tape.I enjoy the Charlie Dean and other ops and the desk people but they were not as prominent in this story. In the audio presentation the chapter ID by time, location, etc got very distracting, and turned irritating. but I liked the finale.

    11. I thought overall it was a good book. The one problem i had is there was no clear hero to root for. So not bad not great.

    12. Had trouble getting into this one as a little slow to start. But it got better at the end.

    13. There. I think this is the last so far of this series. I enjoyed them, quick reads, usually predictable but fun for what they are.

    14. Not the best in the Deep Black series but still a good read.

    15. One of the weaker entries in the series. Too much time is spent introducing passengers and crew on the cruise ship. The focus is more spread out than usual, with less focus on the Art Room team.
