More About This Book

Overview

The Middle East unites under Islamic Jihad and former enemies, Sandor and Kumar, wage a war of terrorism against America. Russia secretly offers to sell a dozen advanced MiG-41s to the United States along with a plan that is both daring and dangerous, but could forever alter the balance of power in the Middle East. Hoping to destroy the unity between Kumar and Sandor, Russian Security Advisor Victor Komiskov and his American counterpart, NSA Director Charles Michaels, assemble a covert strike team of hotshot US and Russian pilots under the command of renegade General George "Maddog" Tanner. Flying the advanced jets from a forgotten airfield, they wreak havoc across the Middle East. With the region on the brink of war, a lone US intelligence officer discovers a terrifying Russian secret, and Captain David Olmstead, five minutes from weapons release, must make the most important decision of his life.

    A Rollercoaster Ride at Mach 2

    'If you want the attention to detail for which Tom Clancy is renown, the air combat of Dale Brown, coupled with the 'been there' and 'done that' of WEB Griffen, Virulent Winds is for you! Author Jim Clonts has my heart racing and palms sweating, as Captain Dave Olmstead's Mig-41 skirts 100 feet above the desert floor into Indian Country! I couldn't put the book down! Put me on the list for the first release of the next installment..... anxiously awaiting! - David Christiancy Tidd, VP Development, RDA Systems, Inc, Canton Georgia

    Top Gun and Top Notch

    VIRULENT WINDS never lets up and never disappoints. The F-15 (the mainstay of American battlefield air superiority) is no longer the top dog, and to make matters worse, its replacement is a MiG-41. Most authors would have stopped right there, but Jim Clonts takes us much further. Clonts made the MiG-41 real. Obviously, he knows about military aircraft, systems and the tactics employed. He vividly paints a picture of the cockpit and takes us into combat against F-14, MiG-29, MiG-31 and a variety of ground based missile systems. The story centers on two Arab countries: Sandor and Kumar, which are remarkably similar to Iran and Iraq. They are bent on developing WMD systems to direct either against each other or the rest of us. To thwart their efforts, a very black operation teams Russian and American pilots flying MiG-41s against targets in both countries. But things aren¿t always what they look like and not everyone has the same objective. This is a great, great read. I wish I could give it 10 stars.
