Former US Air Force captain Dale Brown was born in Buffalo, New York. He was still serving in the US Air Force, where he was a navigator-bombardier, when he wrote The Flight of the Old Dog, the first of a string of New York Times-bestselling thrillers. With Jim DeFelice, he has also written the highly popular series of paperback original novels based in Dreamland, a cutting-edge weapons research facility in the Nevada desert.From AudioFile:
When extremist Islamic pirates attack civilian ships in the Persian Gulf, the United States answers with a next-generation warship, developed at Dreamland, a top-secret facility in the Nevada desert. The ship is nicknamed "Satan's Tail," because of its full range of deadly automated weapons systems, which behave like a thrashing tail. Larry Pressman performs with cool professionalism, using a calm, steady narrative pace coupled with precise military commands. He characterizes battles and combatants with meticulous blow-by-blow descriptions. He fully captures the character of Colonel "Dog" Bastian, who is methodical, calculated, and risk-taking. Fast paced, filled with nonstop action, and multiple story lines, this audio will find favor among the military minded.
