The second (or sixth?) book about Jake Grafton. This is a direct followup to the first book, Flight of the Intruder, but written a bit later than many of the other Jake Grafton books.

It's another page turner but I will never call it a quality book. It's just a good, relaxing, entertaining military story. The Vietnam War is over but American carriers are still patrolling the seven seas and carrier aviation keeps being very dangerous by itself.

Jake Grafton storms back in THE INTRUDERS, the sequel to Stephen Coonts' Flight of the Intruder--the finest combat aviation novel to emerge from Vietnam. Flight of the Intruder became one of the top twenty bestselling first novels of all time, spending and astonishing twenty-eight weeks on the New York Times hardcover bestseller list. Jeremiah O'Leary of the Washington Times hailed it as "a superbly written story." Now, Flight of the Intruder's crack fighter-pilot hero Jake Grafton returns in a gripping, all-new novel that takes the gritty realism and heart pounding excitement of military flying to a thrilling new height.

1973. The skies over Vietnam have finally gone silent. America has pulled out, the war is over. But for Lt. Jake Grafton, USN, fresh from two combat cruises and a harrowing shoot-down over Laos, the personal battle is just beginning....

His country has not welcomed him home with open arms, but with closed minds and closed fists. When his girlfriend's father called him a murderer, Jake walked away. But when a stranger in a bar challenged his honor, the man was not so lucky--the guy landed in the hospital. Jake landed in jail. And Grafton's shore-duty commander, who bailed him out, has devised the perfect punishment for his ace flight instructor: an eight month cruise on the aircraft carrier Columbia teaching jarheads--Marines--the nuances of carrier aviation. Flying missions over Vietnam was a living hell; now, as a Navy man working side-by-side with Marines who have no carrier aviation experience, Grafton's about to discover another world of fresh hell.

The Intruders, by Stephen Coonts (read 19 Oct 2016) I read Coonts' book Flight of the Intruder on 7 Oct 2106 and at the end of that book there were two unanswered question: Would Jake Grafton stay in the Navy? and What of his romance with Callie? This book is the direct sequel to the prior book and in it Grafton is struggling with those questions. It si 1973 and the Vietnam war is over but Grafton is on another carrier and flying with a Marine bombardier and he keeps having fierce spine-tingling problems--none, of course, his fault--and he performs brilliantly . There is lots of technical talk, no doubt of great interest to pilots, and the culminating adventure is the most strenuous (and incredible) yet though we know he will survive. The questions are answered and while there are more books by Coonts about Jake I do not see any need to read them. ( )

Exciting tactical treatment of post Vietnam aircraft carrier operations. Our hero, Lt Jake Grafton, goes on a cruise, worries about his girlfriend, fights pirates and the Soviets while cementing his relationship with a Marine snake-eating bombardier-navigator. Full of Navy jargon, each word well explained. The book is an exciting listen from beginning to end. ( )
