THE RISKIEST CAREER OF THEM ALL.
More military pilots die in training than at war.
Air Force Reserve Major Ford Stevens is a veteran military pilot full of adrenaline, upholding the prestigious family practice of service to the nation in the face of power, politics and intense danger.
Accusations against family members, a pending FBI investigation, fighting against the urge to drink again, and supporting a new wife, Ford must also now train Niagara Air Wing’s newest hot rookie pilot: kid brother Charlie Stevens.
Charlie, a fresh Lieutenant out of pilot training, joins the family tradition seeking to prove himself.
With the rivalry still strong, all he wanted to do was follow his big brother’s footsteps…now, Charlie joins his brother Ford in the same flying squadron, both men putting their lives on the line each time they strap in the jet.
Facing blackmail, Washington intimidation, and overwhelming odds…it will be an initiation by fire as they hunt a saboteur killing aircrew, uniting the competitive brothers in the ultimate test of life and death…
In his most pulse-pounding thriller yet, Lawrence A. Colby explores the high risks of military flying, while sharing the courage, closeness and brotherhood found among pilots…all while Ford and Charlie face saying goodbye to the brave ones who too often make the ultimate sacrifice.
