9781475970517: Flight of the Northern Star

The 1960s--Cold War tensions are high as the U.S. and the U.S.S.R. balance each other’s nuclear strike capability with submarines parked under the polar icecap. Each, desperate to avoid detection as they play a never ending game of cat and mouse. The genius of an ex-Nazi scientist gives America the advantage and now rogue forces within the Soviet military are on a mission to even the score.

The Lockheed Super Constellation held the crown as Queen of the Skies until overthrown by the humble jet engine. Pulled from retirement and eternal sleep, these once great airliners were born again as servants of the National Security Agency and the CIA. Refurbished to outshine the Orient Express and loaded with secrets, they now cruise the skies across the great northern expanse looking for those steel encased angels of death lurking beneath the polar ice.

The most advanced of the fleet, Northern Star #28A, requisite in its black and silver Atlantic Pacific Air livery, sits on the ramp in Victoria B.C. waiting to take its passengers on the trip of a life time. As the flight crew, commanded by Captain Victor Stone, finalizes preparations for departure, several hundred miles away beneath the frigid ice, another captain prepares his team for departure; two distinct groups on a collision course with murder, death and deceit.

Climb aboard the luxurious Northern Star and hang on for the ups and downs, twists and turns of Flight 28A as the passengers and crew fly into the dark world of covert intelligence.
