About this item

"[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 ****** 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…
