Maverick USAF pilot Patrick McLanahan returns in a turbocharged new adventure packed with breathtaking flying action and cutting-edge technology. Pavel Kazakov, a Russian oilman with close ties to organized crime, has an audacious plan. Build a huge pipeline through the Balkans, get the Russian army to back him and everybody gets rich. He knows there will be an outcry, but he expects little military opposition. After all, the new US President has just vowed that America will no longer be the world's policeman. But Kazakov hasn't reckoned with Patrick McLanahan. The young Air Force general is sent on a mission deep into Russia to rescue a spy. And as events spin rapidly out of control, he will have to decide whether to obey his isolationist President -- or to follow his instincts and create havoc!

Though NATO will object, the new American President's emphatic policy of isolationism will guarantee no effective opposition. Russia will dominate Europe. Kazakov will dominate the oil supply.
But he hasn't reckoned on Patrick McLanahan. The young Air Force general leads a combat mission deep into Russia – until he is put in check by the President himself. As Kazakov and Russia continue in their unrelenting drive towards European hegemony, McLanahan and his team find themselves faced with a dire choice. Which is the greater threat: the dangerous empire in front of them – or the dangerous President at home? Whichever way they choose, there is no turning back…
