Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly - Publisher's Weekly
Carroll's auspicious debut, a detailed, suspenseful technothriller, follows U.S. Navy rescue pilots flying missions over North Vietnam in 1972. (Nov.)
Library Journal
June 1972. Life among pilots on the aircraft carrier Concord in the South China Sea. Tim Boyle is a search and rescue (SAR) helicopter pilot who retrieves air crews when they crash in North Vietnam. His best friend is Mike Santy, an attack pilot. There is a plot, of sorts, involving a mission that goes badly wrong, but the meat of the book is the complex, dangerous, expensive, ineffably exhilarating machinery of war, and the highly trained men who operate it. Dripping with sentimentality and false modesty, predictable, adulatory but realistic, exciting, and extremely readable, this will be grabbed up by the same people who read David Poyer's The Gulf ( LJ 8/90) and Tom Clancy's books. Recommended for most public libraries.-- Edwin B. Burgess, U.S. Army TRALINET Ctr., Fort Monroe, Va.
