State-of-the-art action in the air, on land and at sea as the USA is drawn into conflict with China in this spectacular new novel from an acclaimed master of the modern action-thriller.
‘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.’ Sunday Mirror
Admired for their authenticity and breathtaking scenes of aerial combat, Dale Brown’s bestselling thrillers – which include the classic Flight of the Old Dog and, most recently, Shadows of Steel – offer high-action entertainment, cutting-edge technology and insights into the world of international power politics to match the very best of Tom Clancy, Stephen Coonts and Larry Bond.
In Fatal Terrain, which takes place shortly after the events of Shadows of Steel, Taiwan’s formal declaration of independence from mainland China brings the threat of major conflict to the Pacific. As China prepares to send an invasion force into Taiwan, the US president once again calls on his own tried and trusted secret strike force… But it may be the final mission for Patrick McLanahan, Brad Elliott, Jon Masters and their high-tech EB-52 Megafortress – the ‘Old Dog’ itself.

New York Daily News
‘Dale Brown puts readers right into the inferno.’
‘Brown is the best military adventure writer in the country – a master at creating a sweeping epic and making it seem real.’
‘Like the thrillers of Tom Clancy, Stephen Coonts and Larry Bond, the novels of Dale Brown brim with action, sophisticated weaponry and political intrigue… first-rate.’
San Francisco Chronicle
‘You have to hug the seat when reading Dale Brown. The one-time US Air Force captain navigates his way at such a fearsome pace it is impossible to take your eyes off the page in case you miss something.’
Admired for their authenticity and breathtaking scenes of aerial combat, Dale Brown’s best-selling thrillers – which include the classic 'Flight of the Old Dog' and, most recently, 'Shadows of Steel' – offer high action entertainment, cutting edge technology and insights into the world of international power politics to match the very best of Tom Clancy, Stephen Coonts and Larry Bond.
In his masterful new story, the action moves to China, where Chinese land and naval forces are preparing to invade Taiwan, prompting the US president to send in his own tried and trusted secret strike force: Patrick McLanahan, Brad Elliott, Jon Masters and the upgraded EB-52 Megafortress – the ‘Old Dog’ itself.
The immediate crisis is resolved – only to be replaced by an even greater threat, as the Chinese switch to unconventional guerrilla tactics. The more American and Taiwan try to defend themselves against Communist attacks, the more they are branded by the international community as warmongers, until finally the beleaguered US president is compelled to withdraw – and to condemn McLanahan and his fleet of ‘flying battleships’ to the scrapyard.
But if America doesn’t want the power of the Megafortress, the forces fighting to keep Taiwan independent do. As China and the USA lurch towards a nuclear showdown, the hopes of a nation lie in the hands of a disgraced bomber crewdog …
A former US Air Force captain, Dale Brown served as a navigator from 1978 to 1986, logging thousands of hours aboard both B-52 and FB-111 bombers. 'Fatal Terrain' is his tenth novel. His previous best-selling novels are: 'Flight of the Old Dog, Silver Tower, Day of the Cheetah, Hammerheads, Sky Masters, Night of the Hawk, Chains of Command, Storming Heaven, 'and 'Shadows of Steel'. Dale Brown lives in Nevada, where he can often be found in the skies, piloting his own plane.
“When a former pilot with years of experience in America’s Strategic Air Command 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”
