A very well-written novel that deals with the issue of terrorism and commercial aviation. Hitting targets of high value with civil-aviation assests is not a new idea. Tom Clancy may be a great author and Executive Orders/Debt of Honor were both well written books but they did not contain original thought in the use of civil aircraft as weapons. Dale Brown deserves a lot of credit for his original thinking.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.

In Storming Heaven, Brown takes a break from his usual characters (McLanahan, Luger, etc) to bring back Coast Guard Admiral Ian Hardcastle who, along with Air Force Lieutenant Colonel Al Vincenti, must find and stop crazed arms dealer terrorirst Henri Cazaux, who has began a bombing campaign across the US, before he can hit his next target, Washington, D.C. This was only an average Brown novel, though still good. The ending is one of Brown's finest and Cazaux is his best villain.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.

After reading several of Brown's efforts including Night of the Hawk and Silver Tower among others, I don't know if I'll read another one. Storming Heaven is such a great book I have a feeling the rest may disappoint. Brown puts you in the cockpit of the fighters and the emotions the pilots must feel. Characters come to life in this book and there is no shortage of political gridlock. The only drawback is Brown's numerous derogative comments about President Clinton and his Administration. While all Americans can choose whom they like and don't like in politics I'm not sure Fiction books are the appropriate place to share them. A definite must read I couldn't put it down once I started.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.
