Overview

An emotion packed journey through the dreams, romance, desperation, and adventures of an American pilot, shot down while on an illegal reconnaissance flight over Russia.

Lt. Oliver Miller's passion for flying could prove fatal. Shot down while on a reconnaissance mission over Russia, he is near death in a Siberian work camp. His government has abandoned him and his family will never know his fate.

Tamara Krasnov, the Soviet pilot who shot down Oliver, enlists the aid of her father, a high-ranking Soviet official. They have Oliver transferred to a minimum-security prison. The KGB convinces an embittered Oliver that the US had refused to repatriate him. Tamara recruits Oliver into the Russian Air Force, they become lovers and Oliver finds a new life in Russia.

Oliver is recruited by the CIA and lives a life of intrigue during the Cold War and Vietnam War era.

The haunting images of a chaotic, historical era are viewed through the sharp edged vision of a heroic American. The last chapter will leave you misty-eyed.
