From the best-selling author of DEFCON One comes an explosive new thriller.

While Congress debates the merits of continued funding for the Stealth bomber, sinister forces have their own goals in mind. During a training exercise, a B-2 bomber disappears.

When search efforts produce no evidence the bomber crashed, the US Air Force has no choice but to acknowledge that one of its most secret and high-tech aircraft has been hijacked.

Recovery of the B-2 and its crew becomes the president’s highest priority. The Kremlin claims no knowledge of the missing aircraft.

Finally, intelligence leads to what would first seem to be a very unlikely suspect: Cuba. But could the tiny nation pull off a theft of this magnitude? And what might its plans be for the highly sought-after aircraft? Getting the answers to these questions becomes the top-secret mission for CIA agent Steve Wickham. For without those answers, only one solution will remain: invasion. And if the US invades, World War III will certainly follow.

Can Wickham find the answers and the bomber before the president is forced to invade? Or will the world as we know it ignite into a nuclear conflagration?

About the Author:

JOE WEBER is a former fighter pilot who knows his subject well. His military thrillers are fast-paced, accurate, and as current as this morning's headlines. He is the author of: Defcon One, Shadow Flight, Rules of Engagement, Targets of Opportunity, Honorable Enemies, Primary Target. His novels have appeared on the bestseller lists of the New York Times, Publishers Weekly, the Associated Press, and the Chicago Tribune and have been translated into Chinese, Japanese, Hebrew, Spanish, Polish, Russian, and Italian. Mr. Weber holds a master of science degree in aviation management and is an Airline Transport rated pilot with over 10,500 hours of flight time in 43 different types of aircraft, ranging from aerobatic biplanes and high-performance military jets to four engine transports. He served in the United States Marine Corps from 1970-1975. A native of Enid, Oklahoma, he lives near Pensacola, Florida, with his wife.

From Publishers Weekly:

In the near-future of Weber's second techno-thriller (after DEFCON One ), the KGB has hijacked a Stealth bomber and landed it in Cuba. The theft, a rogue operation, is ultimately denounced by the Soviet government, but Castro, enraged by efforts to recover the plane, declares war on the U.S. America's response is a full-scale strike against Cuba's key military installations, while the B-2 remains unaccounted for. Weber, at his best describing details of modern carrier operations, gives readers a firm sense of what it is like to fly against modern air defenses. He establishes credibility, unusual in this genre, by allowing equipment to malfunction regularly. The unsophisticated, two-dimensional characters are less convincing, however, and their insubstantiality is difficult to reconcile with the use of massive military force. The story implies that the eclipse of Russia has left the U.S. with a redundant military capacity desperately seeking outlets.
