Assassination, betrayal and revenge alter the lives of four seemingly successful couples living ordinary lives in Hempstead, New York.
Anthony Bartolo was an up and coming high tech hot shot who measured success by the toys he acquired. His life in Hempstead starts to unravel and he finds himself on a noble mission in Post-Civil War El Salvador. There, his life and that of Colonel Juan Hernandez, a former officer in the rebel forces become linked forever, facing life and death as Anthony's mission changes radically.
His experience in El Salvador inspires him to change his life, but first he must reconcile the murderous revenge taken in the name of defending his life, his personal history and a disintegrating marriage with his new found values.
The characters in Taking Flight are flawed, but the Salvadoran spirit provides hope for survival and possibly even redemption.

About the Author
Stephen Tritto was born and raised in Brooklyn, New York. He volunteered for the U.S. Air Force at the age of seventeen after graduating from high school. His four year experience served as his "coming of age and growing up period." He returned to Brooklyn to continue his education and pursue a career in computer software technology, then relocated to Silicon Valley where he held several executive management positions before pursuing his passion for writing fiction.
Winning the 2006 Red Wheelbarrow (S/E) short story competition for "The Cherries and the Holster" convinced him to stay with it. After completing several short stories scheduled to be published in 2013, he began a five year project that produced his novel "Taking Flight."
The author's other interests include amateur astronomy and kayaking which he invariably manages to bring in to his writing including "Taking Flight" and "Aldebaran is Missing." His interest in the skies and oceans "provides an excellent perspective to life and a reminder of our place in the world."
The author and his wife, Peggy, live in San Jose, California.
