From a New York Times–bestselling author: A military pilot is entangled in the hunt for a Cold War spy selling high-tech secrets to the USSR.
Navy pilot Jake Grafton flies fighter jets with ice water in his veins. But when he’s assigned a desk job in the Pentagon as the head of a top-secret stealth bomber program, his nerve is tested as never before. Colleagues start dying mysteriously, test flights are sabotaged, and the program is threatened at every level. If Grafton can’t infiltrate a web of espionage and counterespionage centered on the deadly traitor code-named the Minotaur, he stands to lose much more than just his career.
The Minotaur is an exhilarating thriller revealing the complexities of military technology R&D by the acclaimed author of Flight of the Intruder, The Red Horseman, and other novels. In the words of Tom Clancy, “Stephen Coonts, like Jake Grafton, just keeps getting better.”
This ebook features an illustrated biography of Stephen Coonts, including rare photos from the author’s personal collection.
