A renegade government and a terrorist cell have gained access to nuclear artillery shells that they intend to detonate in the Canary Islands. The result would be a devastating tsunami across the Atlantic Ocean striking the U.S. East Coast with waves up to 1,000 feet high. Only Charlie Dean and his team at Desk Three can help avert catastrophe. Desk Three is tracing the theft of Russian nuclear artillery shells from a military storage bunker in Tajikistan. They track the shells to a Chinese cargo ship and, ultimately, to La Palma. An Islamic terror group plans to detonate these warheads deep within lava tubes and caves inside the Cumbre Vieja volcano on La Palma. The simultaneous detonation at different points along the rift may trigger the feared landslip. Can Dean stop the plan in time?

Publishers Weekly, 2010-11-29 Coonts and Keith employ a laundry list of familiar elements in their ho-hum third Deep Black thriller (after Deep Black: Sea of Terror): suitcase nukes, an evil Arab jihadist who calls himself "the Jackal," a female agent who's captured and must withstand heinous torture. Series hero Charlie Dean, one of the National Security Agency's Deep Black senior field operators, and his partner, Ilya Akulinin, have come to Tajikistan to chase down the nukes. Charlie and Ilya are in constant communication with the Deep Black ops center at Fort Meade, Md., via a transceiver imbedded in bone behind their ears. This back-and-forth play-by-play lends interest, but it also means if the agents stumble into trouble, they have resources that allow them to get out of danger far too easily. Suspense, such as it is, is heightened primarily by a character going out of transmission range. (Feb.) (c) Copyright PWxyz, LLC. All rights reserved.
