When Rip Cantrell, a seismic survey worker in the Sahara, spots a glint of reflected light in the distance—he investigates and finds a piece of metal apparently entombed in the sandstone. Before long, Rip and his colleagues uncover a flying saucer that has been resting there for 140,000 years.Their discovery doesn't remain a secret for long. The U.S. Air Force sends a UFO investigation team, which arrives just minutes before a team sent by an Australian billionaire to steal the saucer's secrets. Before either side can outwit the other, the Libyan military arrives.Meanwhile, Rip has been checking out the saucer. With the help of a beautiful ex-Air Force test pilot, Charley Pine, Rip flies the saucer away, embarking on a fantastic journey into space and around the world, keeping just ahead of those who want the saucer for themselves.

About the Author

This biography could be entitled, West Virginia Boy Becomes a Very Successful Author....... but that would be too obvious. Author, Stephen Coonts was born and raised in Buchanan, West Virginia, a small town of 6,000. He led the typical life of any boy growing up in the 50's and 60's.

He was born in 1946, and ended his childhood by graduating from West Virginia University with a degree in political science. As happens with many poli-sci grads, he had a law degree in mind, but first he served as a commissioned officer in the U.S. Navy and began flight training in Pensacola, Florida.

Coonts received his wings after completion of fleet replacement training in the A-6 Intruder aircraft. After serving in the Vietnam War as an attack fighter, he served as a flight instructor, and did a tour of duty on the USS Nimitz. Upon leaving the Navy, he entered the University of Colorado School of Law. After receiving his law degree, he moved back to West Virginia to practice for a couple of years. But, his career took him back to Colorado where he specialized in oil and gas law.

Finally, in 1986, he published his first novel, Flight of the Intruder, which became a huge success, being on the New York Times bestseller list in hardcover. Later, a movie by the same title was produced based on his novel, and was released nationally in 1991. All of his books have been published in several different countries.

Currently, Coonts lives in Colorado with his third wife, Deborah, He continues to write novels from Colorado.

wow - This novel was the most cheeziest novel I have ever listened. ....The dialogue is hoakey... plots almost non existant and perdictible.

AudiobooksNow review by Laurie on 2012-07-30 04:29:24

Dont let the standard reviews fool you: this is a prime piece of satire. From an American president who is sweating and messing up his makeup on national TV over whether hell have to welcome aliens into a multicultural White House, from the blowhard TV evangelist John Bob its officially The End of Time, or at least the coming of the AntiChrist, to the UFO special military attache Joe Bombing DeLoreo, this spoof of US secrecy and world bossiness is done with such clever tongueincheek that taking it seriously is far too easy if youre too serious about your UFOs.Besides that, its a great piece of flying fiction by a knowledgeable pilot, and for us aircraft drivers, it makes flying into space seem just a little more plausible and concrete. Great barnstorming read!
