With Hostile Intent [NOOK Book]

Overview

The Gulf War has been over for ten years. It's up to pilots like Cmdr. Brick Maxwell and his glory-seeking skipper, Killer DeLancey, to keep the peace by a narrow margin--a margin called the No-Fly Zone. The Iraqi pilots sometimes buzz the borders--just close enough to shake up the U.S Hornets' nest. And everyone knows these Hornets can't sting unless the Iraqis show hostile intent.

The Gulf War has been over for ten years. It's up to pilots like Cmdr. Brick Maxwell and his glory-seeking skipper, Killer DeLancey, to keep the peace by a narrow margin--a margin called the No-Fly Zone. The Iraqi pilots sometimes buzz the borders--just close enough to shake up the U.S Hornets' nest. And everyone knows these Hornets can't sting unless the Iraqis show hostile intent.

However, hostile intent is a hard thing to judge when you're in the air and the enemy is flying into your zone. When an Iraqi MiG goes down, chaos breaks out on both sides of the Zone--and peace is the last thing on anyone's mind...

Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
Several years after the Gulf War, Commander Sam "Killer" DeLancey, navy fighter pilot and self-centered hotshot, shoots down an Iraqi plane that has wandered into the no-fly zone bordering Saudi Arabia and Iraq and ignites an international incident that results in even more dangerous dogfights. DeLancey's hotheaded heroics are balanced by the cool calm of Commander "Brick" Maxwell, whose rivalry with DeLancey is based on his knowledge of DeLancey's cowardice during the Gulf War. With two tough-as-nails female fighter pilots, a possible Iraqi spy, various love triangles and aerial fight scenes that are more thrilling than a back-to-back showing of Top Gun and Iron Eagle, this red-hot piece of military fiction is certain to keep readers riveted. Like most books in this genre, the weakest parts are the love scenes, which are clich?d ("Killer DeLancey made love... like he flew fighters. Fast, furious, without preliminaries.") but mercifully brief. What this book adds to the genre is an intelligent subplot addressing issues related to the presence of women in the formerly all-male fighter club. Gandt (Fly Low, Fly Fast) weaves in subtle but intelligent observations on harassment and chain-of-command issues while crafting some of the most suspenseful battle scenes in recent military fiction. (Oct. 9) Forecast: Ex-fighter pilot Gandt has written military nonfiction titles, and his fans will undoubtedly pick up this testosterone-drenched fiction debut. Copyright 2001 Cahners Business Information.
Wayman Dunlap
Gandt is a rare treasure, a Navy jet jock with the rare gift of being able to tell a compelling story in a believable and exciting manner that leaves the reader exhausted at the end.
David North
Gandt is as good an author as he is a pilot, and that's high praise.
Stephan Wilkinson
Gandt understands not only airplanes but the people who fly them.

    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!

    Women flying combat off a carrier?

    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.

    Perfect for fans of jet fighters

    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.

    Horrrible

    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.

    Robert Gandt has written a genuine page-turner.

    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.
