New York Times best-selling author James W. Huston returns with his most powerful thriller to date. Exploding with international intrigue, sizzling courtroom drama, and heart-stopping action, Falcon Seven delivers an all-too-realistic tale of America under fire.

A U.S. Navy F/A-18 flying over Afghanistan is suddenly diverted and ordered to bomb a building in Pakistan, where a meeting between al Qaeda and the Taliban is taking place. After destroying their target, the fighter jet is immediately hit by Stinger missiles and the pilots eject over Pakistan. They are captured, assaulted, and dragged through the streets of Peshawar. The world is on edge. The fliers are quickly forced onto a secret Falcon jet headed for the Netherlands, where they'll stand trial for war crimes at the International Criminal Court. The building they hit was actually a medical post constructed by Europeans for Afghan refugees - and 65 innocent people were killed.

It's up to Washington criminal-defense lawyer and former Navy SEAL Jack Caskey to defend the two navy officers and get to the bottom on what is beginning to seem like an orchestrated event. The National Security Council pushes President Obama to employ the act passed under George W. Bush that authorizes the use of force to extract Americans held by the International Criminal Court. While the president initially approves a special operations team to grab the Americans, he later withdraws to cooperate with the ICC. Already fighting a losing battle for his clients, an outraged Caskey works with his contacts in the shadowy world of special operations and CIA operatives to free his clients himself...or help them battle through an international show trial and face imprisonment - for life.

    " Excellent book. Great military/political fiction based on a lot of fact. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Lou | 9/23/2013

    " After enjoying " Marine One " I have to follow up with my colleague's other recommendation " Falcon Seven". Ok, now that I got that out of my system I must move on to something else that is deeper with more developed charcters or just some meat to the plot.... "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Tyler Standish | 8/25/2013

    " A pretty good political thriller. The ending was exciting and it was easy to read. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Joe | 7/22/2013

    " I usually pass on lawyer fiction, but this (and Huston's "Secret Justice" and "Marine One") were all really good. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 William | 6/23/2013

    " Great book especially knowing that it could happen. Huston seems to find out about laws that are still on the books that no one else has knowledge of. Stayed up late to finish because I could not put it down. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Nita | 4/6/2013

    " This is by far Huston's best book and the best book I have read all year. I think it mirrors his experiences as an aviation/litigator attorney. Definitely a must-read. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Joanna Herman | 12/20/2012

    " Great book! I loved the ending. Very clever. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Gary | 10/29/2012

    " I do not think that Mr. Huston voted for Oboma... Very modern & current view of what a "techno thriller" can be. Using events out of todays newspaper the author puts you right in the middle of a situiation that should scare the hell out of every red blooded American. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Dede Murphy | 1/4/2012

    " Fast paced, fun and interesting about the International Criminal Court in the Hague, apparently set up to try war criminals. Two American fighter pilots are set up and brought to trial for war crimes in Pakistan. Lots of complications and implications. Liked the book a lot. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Mike Brand | 10/2/2011

    " It was really intriguing, and I enjoyed the surprise ending. Personally, I'm not fond of the swearing, but the story line is very good. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Tim | 9/11/2011

    " Not one of his better novels by a long ways. Authors should always remember that courtroom dialogue is extremely boring. So are weak spineless Presidents, in this case Obama when dealing with international crisis. At best, 5 of 10 stars "

    " Finished "Falcon Seven" by James W. Huston. Despite the author telling me things far too many times, I really liked this one. It was a fun ride from the opening scene! "
