My first Hunter novel was DIRTY WHITE BOYS. It was a revelation. So well written that I couldn’t believe that I had never heard of Stephen Hunter before. I quickly read everything else by Hunter, and have been a big fan ever since.
Stephen Coonts himself is a superb author. My favorite book by Coonts is acually a non-fiction work titled “The CANNIBAL QUEEN: An Aerial Odyssey Across America”. Its 1991, and Stephen Coonts flys his 1942 Stearman biplane across and into 48 states…an excellent read.
