Stephen Coonts' newest thriller, The Russia Account, pits the CIA's Jake Grafton and Tommy Carmellini against a murderous international financial conspiracy that leaves a trail of death and corruption in its wake. From a small branch bank in Estonia to the highest reaches of the Kremlin, to the halls of Congress and perhaps even to the White House and CIA itself, the Russia plot has put Rear Admiral Jake Grafton, director of the CIA, in the crosshairs of an assassin.
Burglar turned CIA warrior Tommy Carmellini has starred in eight previous Coonts' thrillers. With the help of his mentor Jake Grafton, Carmellini has always managed to foil his enemies. Grafton and Carmellini find that whoever is behind the weaponization of money for ruthless politicians want nothing less than the collapse of America. Discovering and defeating the powerful forces behind this massive, blood-stained financial conspiracy will be their most difficult challenge yet, and perhaps, they suspect, an impossible one.
In a story ripped straight from today's headlines, Stephen Coonts proves once again why he is the best in the thriller business.

Stephen Coonts and master aviation historian Barrett Tillman have teamed up to write a riveting history of the aerial campaign against the most difficult target in North Vietnam, the Dragon's Jaw, the bridge at Thanh Hoa that spanned the Ma River. For seven long years hundreds of young US airmen flew sortie after sortie against North Vietnam's formidable, overbuilt heavily defended railroad and highway bridge. Time and again American Air Force and Navy pilots dodged blistering anti-aircraft fire, surface-to-air missiles and enemy fighters, yet many of them were shot down, killed or captured. The bridge stood as if it were made of kryptonite. For the North Vietnamese, the bridge became a symbol of their patriotic resistance; for US war planners an obsession; for US airmen a testament to American mettle and valor.
Using after-action reports, official records, and interviews with surviving pilots, as well as previously untapped North Vietnamese sources, Dragon's Jaw chronicles American efforts to destroy the bridge strike by bloody strike, putting readers into the cockpit under fire, as only Stephen Coonts can do. The story of the Dragon's Jaw is rich in courage and audacity, an epic tale against a determined foe.
