I have read hundreds of books on this subject, I AM ALSO A PROFESSIONAL PILOT AND THIS IS ONE OF THE MOST politically correct books I have read. Commercial trash. DonÕt bother.
Read the Brick Maxwell books when they first came out, bought them all in succession. Found them to all be very good action fiction, set in the real world. When I saw they were now available on the Nook, decided to get the full set. I, as on reviewer said, had display problems, but nothing fatal. I am now halfway through the second book, The important item is the story and they are very good, as I remember although it's been some time, so I had forgot all the details. Again, they are definitely fiction, but with real world capabilities, the physics are real and I will continue to read through the set with the pleasure a retired Flight Line can have remembering the smell of JP8 and Hot Hydraulic Fluid!
Characters are flimsy, and storyline hackneyed. If you like Richard Henricks books, you might like this one. My rating was also influenced by the formatting of the book. Every once in a while I get a nook book that won't display properly in night mode,and it doesn't matter which device I'm using. Other reader apps like aldiko have no problem with it.
Once I picked up the book up I couldn't put it down. I love how Gandt puts me in the cockpit. Though I've never flown a Hornet, after reading this book I feel like I've been flying for years.
In light of the present threat to America's security, this book is, indeed, timely. Author Robert Gandt has written an exciting story about a realistic series of events in such a way that keeps you glued to the pages. But, beward, don't start reading this book unless you have some time. It's a real page-turner.
