Maverick pilot Patrick McLanahan takes aerial warfare into unknown territory in an explosive new adventure from the bestselling author of FLIGHT OF THE OLD DOG, WARRIOR CLASS and WINGS OF FIRE. On America's newest combat base McLanahan and his crew are devising the air combat unit of the future - the Air Battle Force. An elite team backed by leading-edge technology, they control an armada of unmanned planes that can reach any spot on the globe within hours, and they will have their first target when an oil dispute turns Turkmenistan into an international battleground. But can a handful of commandos and an unproven force of experimental warplanes fight and win a war in which seemingly everyone - even 'friendly' forces at home - wants them to fail?

Major General Patrick McLanahan and General Rebecca Furness join forces with computer-savvy Colonel Daren Mace to command Air Battle Force, a wing of computer-controlled B-1 bombers, called Vampires, and their backup B-52s. All kinds of computer-controlled missiles, ships, and equipment, as well as soldiers fitted out in exo-skeletons called "tin men," join forces to control a runaway group of Taliban fighters attempting to conquer Turkmenistan. Dufris reads every word, every military part, and every action with exacting precision. He changes inflection and phrasing when switching among U.S. soldiers, Taliban and Turkmenistan fighters, and Russians. There's little actual gore and lots of military strategizing and seat-of-your-pants flying, and Dufris's narration never gets in the way of the action. M.B.K.
