From the best-selling author of DEFCON One comes an explosive new thriller.


While Congress debates the merits of continued funding for the Stealth bomber, sinister forces have their own goals in mind. During a training exercise, a B-2 bomber disappears.


When search efforts produce no evidence the bomber crashed, the US Air Force has no choice but to acknowledge that one of its most secret and high-tech aircraft has been hijacked.


Recovery of the B-2 and its crew becomes the president�s highest priority. The Kremlin claims no knowledge of the missing aircraft.


Finally, intelligence leads to what would first seem to be a very unlikely suspect: Cuba. But could the tiny nation pull off a theft of this magnitude? And what might its plans be for the highly sought-after aircraft? Getting the answers to these questions becomes the top-secret mission for CIA agent Steve Wickham. For without those answers, only one solution will remain: invasion. And if the US invades, World War III will certainly follow.


Can Wickham find the answers and the bomber before the president is forced to invade? Or will the world as we know it ignite into a nuclear conflagration?

n Shadow Flight, a stealth bomber is hijacked by a defecting pilot and sent to Cuba and the action and suspense never slows down, coming to involve a CIA operative sent to Cuba to locate the bomber and lots of air and sea combat. The author's experience in the military allows him to vividly describe the technology and hardware without slowing down the story and turning it into a text book. Guided by Weber's smooth narrative, this was an absolutely great piece of military fiction and, I thought, superior to anything by even Clancy. This was my first Weber book, but he is now without a doubt my favorite author.
