Willis Avery, the President's National Security Advisor, wants Lieutenant Neill to investigate Russian stealth technology, in addition to his original assignment. Photographic evidence-and the lack of radar images of the attacking aircraft-lead the American intelligence community to conclude that something new has been developed in the skies over Russia. Avery believes that Neill's friendship with a high-ranking officer in the Ukrainian Air Force is the key to establishing Red Sky at Morning-the existence of new aviation technology that could upset the balance of power between East and West.
However, ultra-nationalist forces are at work. After arriving in Eastern Europe, Neill quickly uncovers a conspiracy of terrorism secretly instigated by the Kremlin. Government leaders in Moscow will stop at nothing to rebuild the Soviet Union as they try to force the breakaway republics back into the fold.
Neill discovers that the terrorism has extended to the weapons facility he is charged with inspecting. Communist agents have gone far beyond their original orders, and it's a race against time as the Marine-with the help of a beautiful Ukrainian journalist-tries to stop them-and come up with a plan to bring down the corrupt govenment officials in Moscow.

Reviewed by Patricia Reding for Readers' Favorite 1st Lt. Michael Neill, born of American parents living in the Ukraine back in the days of the Soviets, is the protagonist to whom Steve Wilson introduces readers in Red Sky at Morning. Neill is uniquely situated for a mission in the Ukraine, to uncover information about a new Russian aircraft responsible for taking down a U.S. military aircraft that had flown off-course during a storm in the vicinity of the China-Russia borders. The story captures Neill’s faith and the significance it plays when he works with a former Ukrainian family friend and fellow believer, Colonel Andrei Ulyanov. Together, Neill and Ulyanov discover the plans of two terrorists, originally commissioned by some from among the highest ranking in the Russian government, who have stolen a nuclear warhead and intend to use it to bring chaos to the former Soviet satellite country. But things go terribly awry when one of the terrorists pre-programs the warhead to detonate, using a code that goes with him to his grave. Will Neill and Ulyanov succeed in capturing the last living terrorist and in shutting down the warhead before its countdown is complete? Steve Wilson creates, with Red Sky at Morning, a story that emphasizes the significance of faith and that demonstrates the power of prayer. Neill is presented as a caring Christian who remembers, even in the most dire of times, those less fortunate. He is a man of honor who, though intrigued by the beautiful Viktoriya Gavrilenko, a Ukrainian journalist digging for a story, puts duty first. Readers will be encouraged as they follow the efforts of those who exercise their power by remembering first their principles.
Red Sky at Morning by Steve Wilson is a great read. The story is compelling and exciting. The characters are well developed and interesting to become involved with. The writing style is easy and fluid making the book hard to put down as you begin to be drawn in by the drama. There is a good mix of romantic interest as well as lots of excitement and intrigue as the characters evolve and the story line unwinds. I enjoyed the many different connections between the characters. There is a slight reference to Christian living that I found to be a nice addition to the story. The events, although fictional, contain a strong link to realistic events that could possibly happen. I would highly recommend this book to readers looking for intrigue and excitement.
