The Devil Dragon Pilot

Concealed deep within China’s inland borders is one of the most secretive airplanes ever flown, known as Devil Dragon. She’s sleek, unbelievably fast, and mysterious—her test pilots have one mission in mind: make her test flights successful for operational use as soon as possible. Or sooner.

But when strange transmissions of pilots are recorded without an aircraft appearing on radar, and bizarre cell phone signals are detected at towers hundreds of miles apart, the intelligence community team is set in motion, and U.S. Air Force Reserve pilot Ford Stevens is asked to take on the most dangerous assignment of his life.

What begins as a friend helping a friend explodes into a globe-trotting action packed military-aviation adventure. Against an atmosphere of Washington, DC government red tape, an intimidating Chinese General, DIA leadership, and carrier aviation, all airways lead to a stunning international plot. Crammed with deceitful government employees, smoke and mirrors tradecraft, and the blackest, most secretive aviation flight ever undertaken, you will be unable to put it down.

Full of meticulous military-style planning, elaborate international characters, and make you sweat twists with every angle and bank turn, Lawrence A. Colby just doesn’t write about flying– he puts you in the cockpit holding the stick and throttle.

The Black Scorpion Pilot

With a touch of human spirit and heart-stopping adventure comes a saga where cyber, aviation, and survival meet.


In the aftershock of losing Devil Dragon, China’s Lieutenant General He Chen knew exactly what steps to take next: continue to secretly build and test fly his second stealth bomber in silence. With a story so disturbingly genuine and real, you’ll mistake it for today’s contemporary headlines…Lawrence A. Colby, the international best-selling author, may give us his finest work yet.

Struggling with unbelievable grief and loss, a pending engagement and more…how will Air Force Reserve’s best pilot heal after losing his best friend? Can you ever fully recover after losing someone so close? Captain Ford Stevens steps up to his most fear-provoking and challenging task ever: cyber-hijack the Black Scorpion and fly her all the way to the United States.

Time-zone communication challenges, satellite problems, widespread distances and jet reliability issues are just the beginning of Ford’s concerns. Another loss of life from someone close to him just might push him over the edge.

As the throttle-gripping story untangles, the cyber-hijacking was the easy part. His extensive journey of where cyber, aviation, and human endurance meet is a story that will test Ford Stevens’ grit and courage to the end.

With an extraordinary touch of human spirit and national security realism comes Book 2 from Lawrence A. Colby. Writing with authenticity that could only come from someone who has flown real world operational missions and worked the corridors of power in Washington, Lawrence A. Colby generates an inspirational novel of soul-searching doubt and uncontrollable action!
