A superb storyteller. (W.E.B. Griffin)

When a volatile Russian leader tries to reclaim the former Soviet republics, Lt. Col. Daren Mace finds himself back in the cockpit of the sleek RF-111G "Vampire" bomber with Rebecca Furness, the military's first woman combat flier. Now Mace and Rebecca are in danger of being pulled into a war beyond borders . . . both professionally and personally. A critically acclaimed bestseller from a master thriller writer.

Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly - Publisher's Weekly
In the year 1995, hardliners have taken control of Russia and seek to reabsorb Ukraine, which has applied for NATO membership. When Russia detonates a low-yield atomic device, the U.S. dispatches a wing of F-111 aircraft, some piloted by women. Major Becky Furness has something to prove, as does Colonel Darren Mace, who has been under a cloud since a mysteriously aborted mission during the first hours of Operation Desert Storm. As the world lurches toward nuclear conflict, Furness and Mace find themselves on a last-chance air strike against the Russian high command. Brown's longstanding love affair with the B-52 ( Flight of the Old Dog ) has given way to a new passion for the F-111, which is this sprawling techno-thriller's real protagonist. The cockpit scenes ably synthesize combat action and technical description, but the novel's storyline shifts uneasily from describing the dynamics of a near-future Air Force to defending the use of women in combat to depicting Russia's resurgence. An unimaginatively nasty portrait of a First Couple clearly modeled on the Clintons does nothing to advance the plot; techno-thrillers seldom succeed as romans a clef . ( July )
Library Journal
It is the immediate future. Russia makes a low-level thermonuclear attack on Ukraine, trying to bring it back in line with the other former Soviet nations. When Turkey agrees to support the Ukrainian army, NATO becomes involved, and the U.S. Air Force Reserves are deployed. Brilliant but maligned maintenance officer Daren Mace joins forces with the beautiful and talented pilot Rebecca Furness in a last-ditch mission to destroy the bloodthirsty Russian leader before full-scale atomic war can erupt. Brown, usually a master of the technothriller, has tried to combine too many topical issues (women in combat, the defense drawdown, the menace of nuclear weapons) with savage attacks on President and Mrs. Clinton, treating the former as a buffoon and the latter as a shrill, antimilitary bigot. Fans of Brown's earlier books will be disappointed by the predictability of the plot and the lack of character development. Unless you are building a complete technothriller collection, pass on this. Previewed in Prepub Alert, LJ 3/15/93.-- Elsa Pendleton, Boeing - China Lake, Ridgecrest, Cal.

    I Also Recommend:

    This is a great story that I highly recommend every one to read.

    This is a great story that I highly recommend every one to read. It sounds like current events of today that is happening over in Russia and the Ukrainian now even though this book was written back in 1999. Who would have thought that the war that is happening over there now could have been written that long ago. It would seem that Dale Brown could see in the future to be able to write about current events that are happening now. I would highly rank this book up there with all of great novel's of our time. Please read this book for it is a real eye opener and makes you think and wonder if this story can come true in all aspects of current events. I will leave it up to you the next reader of this story and decide for yourself. I really do hope that you do purchase or borrow this book and post your own opinions on this book and feel the same way that I do. I promise this book will leave you thinking about what is going to happen next. I greatly thank everyone who reads this review and I hope it will inspire you to read this book.
