Imagine an F-16 fighter pilot thrown into the far future and forced to search for his identity. That's what this book is about -- or should I say that's just the beginning. Hawk Hunter has been sent to the 73rd century by forces unknown. All he has is a tattered American flag in his pocket and, in his memory, the plans for his F-16 fighter jet. He builds the jet, gives it more power than even be imagined, and after being rescued from a desolate planet, sets out to find out why he is suddenly in the year 7200 AD. Many adventures follow, including Hawk's coming to the rescue of a small moon that is being taken over by some very strange characters. There are hints of aliens and ghosts and past lives in this book and also a pretty good representation of what it's like to be a hero without a place to call home. I highly recommend this to any action-adventure reader, sci-fi fan or not.

Hawk Hunter from the long-running Wingman series has somehow been sent to the year 7200 AD. A huge empire controls the Milky Way galaxy from Earth. There are trillions of inhabited planets and billions of trillions of citizens in the Galaxy, wars are constantly being fought out on 'The Fringe,' which are the arms that swirl far out from the center of the galaxy. This Empire has amazing weapons and its spaceships fly in Supertime at nealy one light year a minute (!) Hunter finds himself on an uncharted planet way out on this Fringe, with no memory of how he got there. He is soon rescued and brought to Earth where he competes in the famous Earth Race, which brings him untold wealth. He races against the other spacefighters in a recreation of his old F-16 fighter. He is looking for his identity and the reason how he got to this place and time. It's almost like a Flash Gordon type of adventure, but the twist is it's a little bit of Top Gun in there too. The great cover really says it all. I hope this is a series because I can't wait to read the next installment.

The explorers Erx and Berx are nearing an isolated planet on the fringe of known space when their ship starts to act crazy and looks set to detonate. They say their final good-byes to each other, but before anything catastrophic happens, a man flying a spaceship of unknown design rescues them. The duo meet Hawkk Hunter, an individual who has no idea who he is, how he landed on the deserted planet, or how created one of the fastest spaceships in the year 7200.

Erx and Berx persuade Hunter to enter the Earth Race, an annual spectacular that awards the winning team with incredible wealth. Hawk agrees because recognition will enable him to learn identity. He easily wins the race and obtains a clue towards finding out his identity.

This is the first book in a new series by the author of the Wingman and the Chopper Ops novels and it appears to be a sure hit for action adventure readers. The endearing hero marches at his own pace yet remains a team player. Hunter¿s interactions with Erx, Berx, and others come across as genuine and the choices he makes fit his personality. In STAR HAWK, Mack Mahoney has created a champion of justice that will prove to have wide appeal.
