" A] Swashbuckling Thriller...Coonts takes us on a heck of a good ride."--Kirkus Reviews

In Pirate Alley, a luxurious vacation cruise to the exotic locales of the Red Sea and the Gulf of Aden turns into a nightmare for passengers and crew when their ship is suddenly attacked and captured by a band of bloodthirsty Somali pirates. An initial rescue mission ends in failure--and the decks are covered in blood. Unless they are paid a ransom of $200 million within seven days, the pirates threaten to execute all their hostages. But information gleaned from a captured Al Qaeda operative indicates that there is a far more dangerous conspiracy afoot.

"Coonts details this ship hijacking and take-down as if he has firsthand experience with the SEAL Teams."--Howard Wasdin, author of Seal Team Six

Once the ransom is paid, Islamic militants intend to swoop in and slaughter the passengers in an orgy of terror, hoping to provoke a massive American military response that will set the Muslim world aflame. Jake Grafton is assigned to negotiate with the brutal pirate chief while his right-hand man, Tommy Carmellini, and a team of CIA and Navy SEAL operatives mount an undercover operation not only to save the hostages, but to keep the United States from being maneuvered into a murderous war...

"A stomach-clenching nail-biter that will leave readers exhausted and satisfied."--Publishers Weekly

This edition of the book is the deluxe, tall rack mass market paperback.
