About this Item

Mass market (rack) paperback. Glued binding. 417 pages. Signed by author. Nice inscription to a service member on the page facing the title page. Called in to investigate the torture slaying of Major Franklin Talbot, Air Force detective Martin Collins becomes embroiled in the most controversial case of his career when evidence begins to suggest that Talbot had been hiding a deadly secret. From an on-line posting: "The son of an American diplomat and a Chinese mother, Patrick A. Davis spent most of his childhood living in a variety of countries, including Pakistan, Sudan, Liberia, Thailand, South Korea, the Philippines, and Vietnam. When Pat was sixteen, his father retired from the Foreign Service and the family moved to Washington State. After graduating from Sequim High School, Pat attended the United States Air Force Academy, receiving his commission as a second lieutenant in 1979. He earned his wings a year later and spent his initial assignment flying C-130 transports, becoming the youngest evaluator pilot on the base. In 1986, he was selected as an ASTRA a prestigious designation where the Air Force identifies young officers to be groomed for senior leadership and transferred to the Pentagon. Following this staff assignment, he returned to the cockpit to pilot the secret U-2 spy plane. The missions were long and challenging, and while Pat never enjoyed the restrictions of working in a space suit, he loved the sensation of floating seventy thousand feet above the earth. During the first Gulf War, he helped plan and direct U-2 surveillance operations and was credited with 11 combat sorties. Once the war was over, Pat, now a major, was sent for a year of advanced military studies at the Army Command and General Staff College in Leavenworth, Kansas. Upon completing the course, he was faced with accepting an extended tour as a staff officer. Still desiring to fly, he made the painful decision to separate from the military and applied for a pilot job with a major airline. In 1992, he was hired by American Airlines.and subsequently furloughed ten months later. Deciding to treat the furlough as a sabbatical, Pat used his time off to hone his writing skills. Three years and countless drafts later, Pat was recalled to American Airlines. In 1997, an agent agreed to read one of his novels and within weeks, had signed a two-book deal. The General, a military murder thriller, was released in hardback in 1998 and cracked several bestseller lists, including reaching number one in the Dallas Morning.". Bookseller Inventory # 67890
