LT Bridget Donovan suspects the worst when her former Naval Academy roommate, Audrey Richards, perishes in a botched take-off from an aircraft carrier. The Navy says it's an accident, but facts don't add up. Could it be suicide, or murder? Donovan's unofficial investigation into what really happened, both during their past Academy days and in Richards' final hours, forces her to examine the concepts of honor, justice and the role of loyalty in pursuit of those ideals.

I don't know but I've been told, Naval Academy novels are made of gold ... At least Black Wings seems that way, with its feisty main character, intrigue that carries you into the interstices of Academy life, and a plot that touches on matters of war and peace. --Alan Cheuse, Song of Slaves in the Desert
Told in taut, fast-moving chapters, Jabs's suspenseful novel rings with authenticity. Black Wings is a new twist on a classic story of jealousy, loyalty, friendship, and revenge. --Jon Peede, publisher, Virginia Quarterly Review
An exciting novel of intrigue and romance, loaded with meticulous, real-Navy plot details. Jabs brilliantly brings out the struggles of young women training to become Naval officers while maintaining personal and gender pride. Intelligent, powerful, and thought-provoking. --Edward W. Jewell, CDR, USN (ret)
