Frankly, I wondered why it was that I chose this particular book, since I got a little lost in the aeronautical jargon which was explained at great length in the beginning of the book. I found it interesting that not only men were portrayed as pilots. The main character is a young man trained in Russia to be an undercover agent, and steal secrets while learning to fly a complicated new airplane which he is actually part of as the two of them fly. It is not called The Cheetah--that is the one sent after him when he tries to steal it. I have read other Dale Brown books, I believe. However, I am not sure that it is suitable for book groups.

Kenneth Francis James was the best fighter pilot at DreamLand,Nevada.In 1996,a Russian that looked just like him killed him and took his place at DreamLand. DreamStar, a expermental XF-34 was under James' responsbility. The Russian stole DreamStar. Lt. Col. Patrick McLanahan's F-15 ,Cheetah is less advanced than DreamStar,and so began the greatest high-flying chase of all time.

I stopped after the first couple of chapters and deleted. First we had the brilliant and highly trained Russian sociopath and moved along to far too much US military jargon and acronyms. By that point I was so bored that I simply quit. There is probably an audience for this book, just not me.
