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.

Listener Opinions

    " Patron kept asking me to read it, so put it on the top of my pile! Fun read. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Robert Brase | 2/16/2014

    " Honestly I did like this book yet I am going to describe it as fluffy. A saucer, a working saucer, is found in the desert and these folks from various groups are going to argue over ownership rights. Golly gee whiz! And when it flies over cities and various populated areas people are astonished. Holy moly! When you get to the end some people will even die and like even be killed. Oh no, close your eyes! It is a good book, and part of a two book series, but something seems off. In the beginning it almost reads like a YA book, okay with a bit of violence, like someone getting punched for instance. I would think such a dicovery would cause people to kill indiscriminately and also would cause massive rioting on a worldwide scale when seen flying over city centers. Perhaps I am to pessimistic of the human conditioned response to such an event. Does this mean I will skip the second book? Not a chance! I cannot wait to see if someone gets whacked by a whiffle bat. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Dave Vickery | 2/15/2014

    " Not bad, light-hearted and easy to read "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 David | 2/15/2014

    " Woof, woof, woof. Need more be said. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Wdmoor | 2/13/2014

    " I like Stephen Coonts, but not this book. The characters were as deep as a poorly written comic book and the whole story vaguely retarded. Now get Admiral Jake Grafton into this story and you might have a good book, but as it is it's vaguely ridiculous. "

    " I actually really enjoyed this book. Lots of action and plot twists, great characters, as well as a fascinating theory on the origin of modern man. I will be reading more Stephen Coonts. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Michael | 1/2/2014

    " Good read. A mixture of humor, sci-fi, political intrigue. "

    " This book would be interesting to someone who knows a little about flying. I got a little lost going through the technical stuff. "

    " I thought this started a little slow but once it picked up speed, it was very enjoyable. I identified with the characters and couldn't wait to see what happened to them. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Simeonberesford | 11/23/2013

    " "Oil company geologists find a flying saucer buried in solid rock in the north african desert. Lots of action and chaos ensues. But cool flying scenes and a fun read." "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Dennis | 7/7/2012

    " A quick pickup at the library and when I started to read, realized I'd read it before. Continued for lack of something to read. Not as good the second time around. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Adam | 2/26/2012

    " Really cool. A fast read and a lot of fun; I didn't want to put it down. The flying saucer's technology was totally believable and it's possible history completely awesome. Great story with wonderful characters, I'm looking forward to the sequel. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Ben Burdett | 10/4/2011

    " One of the best treatments of (almost) believable science fiction that I've read. Good research on the author's part. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Jared | 10/23/2010

    " First book in a long time I didn't finish, because it just sucked. It seemed like 10 pages of explanation were missing between every scene change, and for someone who has no problem putting time travel books down the hatch, that was confusing as hell. Cheesy and lame for the 70 pages I read. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Howard | 1/22/2010

    " Enjoyable read thus far. Fast paced action and the author is not afraid to take risks with the story line which is a bonus with SciFi. "

    " Great story line, good characters. Really enjoyed the experience. This book is great even for young adolescents. Easy reading and fun. A little graphic in some of the violance but not too bad. Enjoyed th estory from start to finish. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Guillermo | 5/15/2009

    " The book starts off very slow for my taste. However, after that Saucer did pick up quite nicely. It was a bit more action pack with a nice flow of detail.

    Overall it was a good book however, I can't say it would be a book I would read more than once. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Hrairoorah | 3/11/2009

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Brian | 1/8/2009

    " I thought this book would make a fantastic movie. I would love to see it as a movie. It follows the story of a college kid who finds a real flying saucer in the Sahara, takes it around the world, has some cool adventures, falls in love. Flight of the Navigator for the 21st century. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Skip | 12/24/2008

    " I was dissapointed in this book , it seem to me that it was writen for someone young.
    To me it was was not a good story , nothing i would pick up to read again. "
