LIBERTY'S LAST STAND

Islamic terrorists lit the fuse…
    …but a treacherous president planted the bomb.

And that’s only the beginning, in the most daring and exciting thriller ever from the pen of sixteen-time New York Times bestselling author Stephen Coonts.

With the nation in shock over the latest Islamist outrage, the president imposes martial law, cancels the imminent presidential election, and suspends the Constitution.   In response, Texas secedes—and what follows is the bloodiest, most harrowing internal insurrection since the Civil War.

In the center of the action are former CIA director Jake Grafton and former CIA operative Tommy Carmellini with a mission unlike any they’ve had before: save the country from its own president.

With the country in flames, riots in the cities, and America’s armed forces pitted against each other, the American people are confronted with the ultimate political question: Who are we, what do we stand for, and what are we prepared to do about it?

Violent and shocking, pulse-racing in its intensity, with drama ripped from today’s headlines, Liberty’s Last Stand is a thriller like no other.

Liberty’s Last Stand by Stephen Coonts will be published June 13, 2016 by Regnery Publishing.  The novel is available for pre-order now from Amazon, Barnes & Noble, and everywhere books are sold.

The Art of War

Stephen Coonts' latest thriller, The Art of War, was published February 2, 2016, by St Martin's Press. Promoted to director of the CIA after the murder of his predecessor, Jake Grafton begins to suspect the Chinese have planted a nuclear weapon in Norfolk to destroy the Atlantic Fleet aircraft carriers and their battle groups over Christmas. Faced with the horror of a worse disaster than Pearl Harbor, Jake and Tommy Carmellini are back in another thriller that is as timely as today's newspaper headlines. Can they find the bomb before it explodes? It is a race against time in a classic page-turing thriller from bestselling author Stephen Coonts.

Publisher's Weekly said, "Jake is still the iron-man leader that series fans could only wish to see in real life. Readers will look forward to Jake and Tommy's further adventures."

Jake Grafton Series

 

The Jake Grafton Series

These ten novels take Jake Grafton from a young Navy attack pilot flying A-6s during the Vietnam War (Flight of the Intruder) to two-star admiral working with the CIA (Liberty). These novels introduced millions of people around the world to carrier aviation and the modern American military. Although some people like to read them in the order in which they were written, they are all stand-alone novels; you can pick any one and dive into Jake’s world. He isn’t brilliant, has no great insight into the problems of our times, but he has common sense and always tries to do the right thing, regardless of the personal consequences. He’s a hero for our time.

Tommy Carmellini Series  

The Tommy Carmellini Series

Tommy Carmellini, ace CIA burglar, first appeared in the Jake Grafton novel Cuba as a minor character. He appeared in all subsequent Grafton tales. Coonts liked him a lot, so he promoted Tommy to stardom in Liars and Thieves. In subsequent stories, The Traitor, The Assassin, and The Disciple, Tommy shared center stage with Jake Grafton. The team is together again in Pirate Alley, published in April, 2013.

Deep Black Series  

The Deep Black Series

The Deep Black series of co-written novels came about because Coonts couldn’t write quickly enough to fill the demand for his works. If you like fingernail-biting suspense and rock ‘em, sock ‘em action, you’ll love this series about a covert CIA team that fights bad guys all over the globe. Fans of this series say the books are best read in order. Coonts disputes that, since the books were carefully crafted as stand-alone novels. The first eight books in this series were original paperbacks. The ninth was first published in hardcover, then paperback.
