Pirate Alley by Stephen Coonts
  

Sarah Broadhurst's view...

Coonts is a bestselling author who also happens to be a naval aviator and he draws hugely on his experience in his books. Pirate Alley once again brings together two of his best loved characters, Jake Grafton and Tommy Carmellini who have starred in more than 15 books between them but whether you’ve read others or not this is an enjoyable thriller. Very modern in its subject but a good old fashioned adventure at its heart.

If you like Stephen Coonts you might also like to read books by Dale Brown, Bill Napier and Chris Fox.

Synopsis

Pirate Alley by Stephen Coonts

Mogadishu, Somalia. A luxury cruise liner has been captured by Somali pirates, with 860 lives at the mercy of the ruthless hijackers. Jake Grafton, head of Middle Eastern covert Ops for the CIA, has contacted his uniquely talented operative Tommy Carmellini, requesting his presence. Grafton's veins of ice and nerves of steel make him Washington's go-to man in a crisis, while Carmellini has the skillset Grafton needs when he knows he won't be playing by the book. With the pirates holding firm to their demands, together they must launch an offensive explosive enough to blow their enemy firmly out of the water...
