The third in the Saucer series is, like its predecessors, science fiction in the grand pulp tradition. It’s been a decade since Coonts’ last entry in the series (Saucer: The Conquest, 2004), but the story picks up pretty much where that one left off. The alien flying saucer that landed at Roswell, New Mexico, in 1947, is now sitting at the bottom of the Atlantic Ocean. Harrison Douglas is about to recover the saucer, determined to extract from its computers the formula for an anti-aging drug. But he hasn’t counted on his right-hand man, Adam Solo, stealing the saucer. Turns out Solo is a space traveler, and he wants to use the Roswell saucer to summon a starship to take him home. Make no mistake, this isn’t intended to be serious science fiction. It’s pulp fiction, a story that feels like it came off the pages of a 1940s or ’50s sf magazine, with deliberately dubious science, flashy characters, and a whole lot of fun. It’s the kind of story you read and think: Why don’t they write stuff like this anymore? --David Pitt --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.
“Coonts knows how to write and build suspense.” ―The New York Times Book Review
“[A] fast-paced…superb…combination of thriller and sci-fi.” ―Booklist

In my opinion this represents some of his absolute best work.
His understanding of everything from A to Z when it comes to the human race is phenomenal and well represented in his Saucer trilogy.
Don't miss this series. I am sorry I did not read it earlier.
The theme of ruthless people looking to get their hands on Saucer technology for their own greed while the Saucer owners try to get on with their lives is revisited again.
A nice easy read that ties up the trilogy, unfortunately it left me with a feeling that it was the same old same old. Even with the introduction of a new significant character the overall feeling was one of predictability.
As a stand alone book I perhaps would rate it higher, but this book felt the most contrived in the series and was disappointing in the manner in which the series was concluded.
I read the first and the second as paperbacks and found this one by accident but decided I had to read it.
It completed the story for me.
Perfect. Not a standalone - read all 3.
A good read, get it before the surf gets too high this season.
Alien worlds, beings like Adam Solo marooned on Earth for thousand years, love for life and adventure heroes feel, flying saucers and unimaginable number of stars where life similar to ours might be.
And,of course, the fun, happiness with life and curiosity for everything new which is felt on every page of that novel.
The book which makes you sad sometimes but also smile a lot.
I do not insert spoilers into my reviews. When I read a review I don't want a detailed review of the entire book. So detailed that it even gives the ending away.
I was not disappointed with this book. If you are a fan of the series you should like it. I had wondered how Steve was going to do another book because with the last one it seemed to me the series was at an end. He's done a great job of bringing it back. The end looks pretty final for the series this time also BUT I'd still like to see another new book and I suspect that if his loyal readers ask for it he will provide it.
