Overview

When a routine American-Israeli exercise goes wrong, Brick Maxwell's wingman is shot down and taken prisoner by a Palestinian splinter group. Negotiating the flier's release is the President's shadowy, power-hungry special envoy, Rick Solares. Though the pilot is set free, Brick suspects there is more to the arrangement than meets the eye. And when the woman he loves falls victim to the terrorists, his devotion to duty turns into a desire for vengeance. With the help of his Roadrunner squadron, Brick will risk everything to make the enemy pay.

Editorial Reviews

Wayman Dunlap
Gandt wrote the best non-fiction books I've ever read on the Reno Air Races and on the making of a Hornet pilot. He branched into fiction, creating a character named Cdr. "Brick" Maxwell, a really Sierra Hotel fighter pilot. Gandt ensures that it all makes sense and each page draws you inexorably toward the next.
