Riassunto: Reviewers hailed James H. Cobb's previous Amanda Lee Garrett novels as "breathtaking" and "lightning-paced" ( Publishers Weekly), and "hot as a Sea SLAM missile with target lock" ( Library Journal). Murder Ink called Garrett "the best naval hero since Tom Clancy's Jack Ryan."
In Target Lock, an industrial research satellite falls to the Indonesian sea after a series of successful tests-only to disappear along with its international recovery team and their ship. NATO and U.S. military officials believe that it has been stolen, but by whom and why? Commander Garrett and her U.S. Navy task force are called in for the hunt, this time among some of the most beautiful, but uncharted, islands on earth, the Indonesian archipelago. Garrett soon suspects that a high-tech pirate has plans for the satellite and its data, but the man she meets is more than her match. He has amassed a sea force of his own and built a hidden fortress undetectable to all but the most sensitive intelligence-gathering equipment. When Garrett herself is kidnapped, her crew, aboard the destroyer U.S.S. Cunningham with its array of modern weaponry, charges in to her defense.
Cobb has crafted another heart-stopping tale, featuring one of the most original characters in military fiction and the technology and strategy the U.S. Navy will almost certainly one day employ.
L'autore: James H. Cobb is the author of three Amanda Lee Garrett thrillers- Sea Fighter, Sea Strike, and Choosers of the Slain-and is an avid student of military history and technology. He is a member of the United States Naval Institute and the Navy League.
