When an almost-forgotten enemy prepares a shock attack on America, only one man can see it coming. The high-adrenalin new Patrick McLanahan adventure from the bestselling author of Flight of the Old Dog and Air Battle Force.
Stuck in a desk job in Air Force Intelligence, maverick pilot Patrick McLanahan uncovers disturbing evidence that the Russians are secretly arming their bomber fleet with nuclear warheads. Worse still, he realizes that despite the lessons of 9/11 the USA is still vulnerable to air attack by a determined enemy.
But his warnings come too late. A flight of Russian bombers penetrate American airspace and launch devastating nuclear attacks on key airbases. As panic grips the country, McLanahan takes matters into his own hands and slips into Russia with the elite Air Battle Force rapid-response team – to strike back at the heart of the Russian bomber fleet.

‘Clancy’s got serious company.’
New York Daily News
‘When a former pilot with years of experience turns his hand to writing thrillers you can take their authenticity for granted. His writing is exceptional and the dialogue, plots and characters are first-class… far too good to be missed.’
‘Brown puts us into the cockpits of wonderful machines and gives us quite a ride. His flying sequences are terrific … authentic and gripping.’
New York Times Book Review
