Review quote

"Coonts knows how to write and build suspense . . . a natural storyteller.""--The New York Times Book Review

"""The Sea Witch" is a triple play of classic Stephen Coonts tales: No one writes more forcefully of warriors whose missions and dreams take flight. It's always a treat to have Coonts in print again, but this book's one of a kind."--Ralph Peters, "New York Times "bestselling author of "Cain at Gettysburg" and "The Officers' Club""

""Great entertainment comes in threes. Stephen Coonts, the master of the military suspense thriller, delivers you three nights of fevered page-turning in three terrific novellas, set in three amazing periods of American history. Don't miss it." -- William Martin, "New York""Times" bestselling author of "Annapolis" and "The Lincoln Letter

""Stephen Coonts has an absolute lock on the secret of good story telling: He knows interesting people in harm's way so well that the reader has no choice but to care for them. And in the case of "The Sea Witch "and other stories in this fine collection, it's obvious he knows airplanes just a well. My only disappointment was that the stories ended--I wanted more."--David Hagberg, "New York Times" bestselling author of "Abyss"""
