CIA officer Jake Keller faces stakes that are very high and very personal in the latest electrifying thriller from the author of Rogue Strike.
After years of relative calm, piracy has returned to the high sea.
But the days of AK-47s and outboard engines are over. The new pirates hit like a SEAL team. Highly trained, and using cutting edge technology, they make sure their victims are never heard from again.
Ships and crews are vanishing at a staggering rate.
As the threat to international shipping grows, U.S. authorities become determined to find the source of this new danger.
Jake Keller has a plan—to lure the pirate mastermind out of hiding by infiltrating his organization—but it’s a dangerous gambit, made more so by Jake's personal involvement with the beautiful heiress to a Greek shipping fortune and an ulterior agenda coming out of CIA headquarters.
As the threats close in from all sides, Jake finds himself faced with a familiar choice: back off, or go on the offensive.
His fate, and the fate of a nation, hang on his decision.
About the Author
A keen outdoorsman, David Ricciardi incorporates many personal experiences into his work. He's backpacked through the mountains of the western United States and Alaska, received extensive training from law enforcement and U.S. special operations personnel, and once woke up for a two A.M. watch aboard a sailboat only to discover that it was headed the wrong way through the Atlantic sea-lanes in heavy weather, with one of the crew suffering from hypothermia. In addition to being an avid sailor, David is also a certified scuba-rescue diver and a former ski instructor.
“Ricciardi’s exciting third Jake Keller thriller….build[s] to a final, head-snapping twist. Ricciardi has hit his stride with this outing.”—Publishers Weekly
“Once again David Ricciardi will have you turning pages as fast as you can in this imaginative, well-plotted, highly-plausible riveting tale. And then with the ending he’ll hit you with a surprise you never saw coming.”—The Washington Times
“Fast, relentless, and superbly plotted, Black Flag is Ricciardi at his best, and the sky is the limit for this series moving forward. Fans of Tom Clancy and Mark Greaney will especially want to give this one a go.”—The Real Book Spy
“Fans of the first two Keller novels will certainly want to read this one, and action-adventure readers who haven’t yet met Jake should seize this opportunity.”—Booklist
