Description

Bestselling author Stephen Coonts took fans by surprise with the phenomenal and heart-pounding tale of "Saucer." Now Rip Cantrell and Charley Pine are back for seconds with with "Saucer: The Conquest."

Rip Cantrell is brought back to give the saucer one last flight. Charley Pine has started flying for a rich French tycoon, and there is believed to be another downed saucer somewhere in the area. Rip can't quite get over the fact that Charley has dumped him. But when push comes to shove Rip and the United States Government are going to go head to head with this crazy Frenchman in trying to be the first to the saucer.

As Stephen Coonts proved in his last outing, there is a great deal of high-flying adventure to be found in the Saucer series. And this one not only promises all the excitement of the last one, but it delivers with much, much more.
