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.
If written in a different style, Saucer the Conquest would be a great kids book. It has adventure and flying saucers, like kids need more than that. As it is, its a very enjoyable yarn. It isn’t at all like Coonts normal naval works but still keeps the reader turning the pages as they get caught up in the plot.
