After a particularly long cruise, the USS United
States is in port in Naples and her crew is enjoying its first liberty in
months. But something’s not right. Several crew members have not reported back
from their leave and a beautiful American reporter who boarded the United
States in Tangiers may not be a reporter, or even an American.
When one of Jake’s men, in a hotel in Naples,
witnesses an assassination attempt led by this woman, Grafton realizes the
situation is much more serious than he suspected. What he doesn’t know is that
Colonel Qazi, an international terrorist, plans to board the United States and
steal six nuclear weapons from her heavily guarded arsenal.
Nor does he know that the plot is being financed by
El Hakim, the power-hungry leader of an oil-rich Arab state. And most
important, he doesn’t know he, Jake, past forty and recently grounded by night
blindness, is the only one who can stop Qazi, in one man-to-man aerial
dogfight, one “final flight.” Download and start listening now!
